The Gnome Games will be an afternoon of fun and of course games . We hope this will be an annual event and will facilitate friendly rivalry between these 2 gnome organisations (and any others that might not wish to make themselves known) rather than risking more bloody rivalry as occurred at GNOMEAGEDON (documented by SirPhilPamAndRob). The winning group will win The Ashes (the remains of the first Gnome King's pointy hat).
The afternoon will kick off with procession of the team flags, led by the respective presidents.
Then every team respresentative will have the opportunity to register their times and distances for each event to determine who will represent each team in the finals.
The finals will commence at 3pm sharp with the awards ceremony taking place shortly after the final event. There will be individual medals and an overall team winner who will be awarded with The Ashes.

From My Kitchen is any item you have cooked / baked. These will be judged on taste.
From My Garden is any item you have grown in the garden. These will be judged on look.
By My Hands is any item you have made. These will be judged on look.
The Ddraig Minions will also be providing a selection of refreshments, stalls, a tombola, face painting, scarecrow making, and much more giving it a summer fair feeling.
When you register your "will attend" please confirm your allegance (Wirral, Cheshire or Other).
