Search for Sports and Community Stars

Published Wednesday, 18 June 2014

The search is on for Ribble Valley’s sporting heroes and community champions.

Nominations for the 2014 Ribble Valley Sports and Community Awards are now open.

The deadline for nominations is Friday 11 July, and the awards will be presented at a ceremony in August.

Nominations can be made in the following categories: Club of the Year, Coach of the Year, Team 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, Lifetime Achievement and Community Engagement.

Peter Fletcher, Ribble Valley Borough Council’s sports development officer, said: “The awards are a fantastic opportunity for sports clubs, coaches and volunteers, to get the recognition they deserve for their hard work and commitment, and we are asking as many people, clubs and organisations as possible to make nominations.

“In order for the awards to be a success we rely on clubs, coaches, players, parents, teachers and friends to nominate people who deserve to be recognised for their contribution to community sport.”

The winners will represent Ribble Valley at the Lancashire Sports Awards in October.

Further information and nominations packs are available on 01200 425111.
