THE LAUNCH OF THE 2014 DACORUM SPORTS AWARDS
Sportspace, Dacorum Sports Trust, in partnership with The Gazette Newspaper have launched this year’s Dacorum Sports Awards. The search is now on for talented sporting individuals, teams and clubs in our local area – help us celebrate local sporting achievement by nominating your local sports heroes!
As well as recognising those that actively participate in local sport, the Dacorum Sports Awards are also an excellent opportunity to reward those who work tirelessly behind the scenes in a coaching, administrative or official role. Rebecca Dukes, Sportspace Sports Development Manager said “We have a huge amount of sporting talent locally and the awards enable us to acknowledge and highlight this. After another great summer of sport at the Commonwealth Games, the awards serve as a reminder of the fantastic sporting achievements and opportunities in our borough. The annual sports awards help us improve awareness of sport in Dacorum, and encourage more people to get involved and also more active!”
Looking forward 2015 is going to be an exciting year for sporting activity in the borough thanks to the recent Sport England Community Sport Activation Fund grant of £250,000 to Dacorum Borough Council. This funding will provide a programme of projects aimed at getting the local community more active through sports and physical activity initiatives over the next 3 years and will be run in partnership with local sports clubs and Sportspace facilities as well as a range of community partners. The ‘Get Set, Go Dacorum’ programme is due to be launched on the 20th September.
Any award ceremony is only as good as the quality of nominations so we are calling on all local clubs, teams and individuals to support the event and send in their nominations!! The judging panel will be made up of local sports representatives from clubs, the Dacorum Sports Network, Herts Sports Partnership and other community partners. Nominations are available on-line via the Sportspace website www.sportspace.co.uk or the Gazette website www.hemeltoday.co.uk or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a form or the link to the nomination form. Anyone wanting more information can ring the Sportspace Sports Development team on 01442 507155 or 01442 507156.
