Saturday, 13 August 2022, an exceptionally beautiful day, saw the fulfillment of the first-ever Summer Sport fest by the Filipino-British Community Nottingham shire/Derby shire (Filbrit) at Murray Park, Derby. Excitement was felt everywhere as this was a sport fest with a difference, Not only did it have a variety of games (football, basketball, volleyball, badminton) for all ages (7 to 40 year olds), it was also a fun-packed family and friends day entertainment graced by talented performers, mayors, and beauty queens, and of fabulous Filipino food and delicacies. It was a great day of races, games and bouncy castles of picnics on the grass playing chess and ‘sungka’ a traditional Filipino game with shells. Special praises must go to the Arts and Crafts stall which attracted and made so many children happy.

An altogether unique experience, the Filbrit Sportsfest showed so much promise, it can only go from strength to strength.
