Search For Sports and Community Stars
Published Tuesday 24th April 12
The search is on for Ribble Valley’s sporting heroes and community champions.
Nominations for the 2012 Ribble Valley Sports and Community Awards are now open.
The awards will be presented at a glittering ceremony at the Grand, Clitheroe, on Friday, July 27.
Nominations can be made in the following categories: Club of the Year, Coach of the Year, Adult Volunteer of the Year, Young Volunteer of the Year and School of the Year. There are also special awards for Rising Star and Lifetime Achievement.
Chris Hughes, Ribble Valley Borough Council's head of cultural and leisure services, said: "The awards are a fantastic opportunity for community sports clubs, coaches and volunteers to get the recognition they deserve for their hard work and commitment.
"They pay tribute to residents, young and old, who perform at the highest level of local sport, or dedicate their time tirelessly week in, week out, to support local clubs and facilities.
"We are asking as many people, clubs and organisations as possible to make nominations, so that Ribble Valley can play its part in this landmark year for British sport.
"We are looking forward to a fantastic awards ceremony on the opening night of the Olympics."
The winners will represent Ribble Valley at the Lancashire Sports Awards in September.
The deadline for nominations is Friday 15 June, and further information is available from Ribble Valley Borough Council on 01200 425111 or www.ribblevalley.gov.uk/sportsawards
