More ladies needed for sport award ceremony

Have your say

TIME is running out to nominate local sport heroes for an awards ceremony.

People from across East Hampshire – from Horndean to Alton – are being encouraged to put forward coaches, athletes and club volunteers for the awards.

The organiser, East Hampshire District Council, is particularly encouraging more nominations from women in sport.

The deadline for nominations has been extended to January 16.

Councillor Nick Drew, responsible for community issues, said: ‘We have been very pleased with the number of nominations we’ve received so far, but with women currently under-represented, we have taken the decision to extend the deadline.

‘No decisions have been made in any category so I would encourage local sports clubs to keep their nominations coming in.’

Chosen finalists will be invited to the awards evening on February 12 at The Old Thorns Manor Hotel in Liphook. Visit
