We are on the lookout for stars and unsung heroes of the sporting and physical activity world from the past year.
Nominations for our 2019 ‘Active Bolsover District Awards’ are now open. Our aim is to showcase the impact physical activity and sport have on local communities and individuals whilst recognising and rewarding the top local sportsmen, women, volunteers and clubs from across Bolsover District.
We have again teamed up with the Bolsover District School Sport Partnership to recognise the achievements and commitment of schools and young people. The categories are split into three sections – Community, Performance and Schools – and with 33 awards such as Change 4 Life, Active School, Young Sports Leader and Community Club/Group up for grabs, there is sure to be an award for you.
Cabinet Member for Leisure, Councillor Mary Dooley said, “It never ceases to amaze me at what talented and committed individuals we have across our District.”
This could be anyone from a top athlete to an individual who has dramatically changed how physically active they are and are seeing the benefits, to a club or team, a school volunteer or a sports leader who deserves to be recognised for their achievements and commitments during the past year (September 2018 - up to August 2019).
“We have some excellent sports stars and young people in our district and some real stalwarts who basically live, breathe and eat sport so we want to help them celebrate their success, achievements and commitment. So, if you know someone who you think deserves to be recognised, then get in touch with us and nominate them for an award,” added Councillor Dooley.
The deadline for nominations is 11 September 2019 with the awards ceremony taking place in October.
Nomination forms can be picked up from our offices, by telephoning 01246 242366 or can be downloaded.
