Commonwealth Games mascot Perry meets borough pupils

The mascot for this summer’s Birmingham Commonwealth Games visited a borough primary school to meet excited youngsters.

Perry paid a visit to Blanford Mere Primary as part of a whistle-stop tour of schools around the country in the lead up to the 2022 Games.

Year 5 and 6 children at the Kingswinford school took part in an assembly hosted by Perry and a Commonwealth Games representative where they were told lots of information about the upcoming summer extravaganza.

Perry, a bull covered with multi-coloured hexagons, also walked around the school in Mimosa Walk meeting other pupils. Kelly Grandison, Commonwealth Games project manager for Dudley Council, said:

"The visit from Perry to Blanford Mere was one of 12 we have been able to secure for borough schools in the run-up to the Games.

"He has been welcomed with open arms at every one – the children absolutely love him and it has really got them excited and looking forward to the summer Games."
