A RYEDALE sport enthusiast has continued his support for the summer's events by cutting the lawn of his home into the Commonwealth Games logo.

Malcolm Richardson, who lives in Kirkbymoorside, had previously created a tribute to the England World Cup team and the Tour de France in his hedge.

"This one took a bit more time as I had to get on my hands and knees and use the shears," he said.

"It was enjoyable to do though and people have been coming round to have a look."

Malcolm said this would probably be and end to his sporting emblems for this year.

"I will give my grass a rest and let it grow back but I will be looking out for other events and someone has suggested I do something for Wimbledon so that is a possibility for next year."

Meanwhile at the Commonwealth Games, Ryedale-based shotgun coach John Richardson said he was 'absolutely delighted' with his team's tally of five medals so far wit two events to go.

"We have won two gold, one silver and two bronze, which is the best ever for an England team," he added.

"The team have really got their heads into each event and I am delighted for them - it has been a tremendous games for us."
