Get ready for the Games

A volunteer is handed the controversial flat cap

As the Commonwealth Games draw ever closer, a free public information leaflet has been produced to help local businesses and residents plan for the inevitable changes it will bring to the usual routine.

Called ‘Enjoy the Games’ it is available from libraries, leisure centers and tourist information centres and details all the major events in the city and advises people on how best to deal with these.

Frances Done, chief executive of Manchester 2002 said: “From 25 July to 4 August, Manchester and the surrounding area will be an extraordinary place so inevitably, ordinary life will be slightly different. The biggest multi-sport event ever held in the UK will be happening on our doorstep and we hope this pamphlet will go some way to helping people to prepare and adapt their normal routines so they can enjoy the Games.”

She added: “This is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to show millions of people all over the world that Manchester is a warm and welcoming city and we hope everyone will welcome our visitors, plan ahead and enjoy the Games.”

A free copy of the leaflet can be obtained by calling 0870 162 2002
