Juliet Smith, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Community Protection said:

“It is important to recognise those who have excelled or gone the extra mile for sport in the community and the Sports Awards event offers a great opportunity for clubs, coaches and sporting people of all ages to get recognition for their achievements and celebrate the great work currently going on throughout Wyre Forest.

“Last year’s awards proved to be an inspirational evening during which talented and dedicated people were presented with honours for their sporting excellence and I am very much looking forward to the next awards ceremony.

“If you know someone who is a sporting hero or you want to get involved by sponsoring an award then please contact us.”
