Forget London 2012, the countdown has begun to the event everyone is talking about – the Midlothian Olympics and Paralympics family fun day.

And if you have fond memories of school sports days, there will be a chance to relive the experience at King George V Park, Bonnyrigg, on Sunday, June 12, from 11am to 4pm.

All kinds of sports will be showcased, including speedminton – badminton without the net – Zumba, skiing and snowboarding. Participants will also have the chance to try martial arts, football techniques, golf, archery and orienteering.

The event will also help raise funds for CLIC Sargent.
