TIME is running out to nominate Hucknall’s sporting stars, coaches and volunteers for recognition in the prestigious Active Ashfield Sports Awards.

The annual prize-giving recognises school teams and individuals who have achieved something special and those who give up their time to help sport flourish in the district.

Nominations close on Monday October 3. Forms are available by visiting www.activeashfield.co.uk or by calling Ashfield District Council’s sports development officer, Carol Hallam, on 01623 457410.

Categories are for juniors and those aged 18 or over. Awards are for team, sportsperson, volunteer, disabled sportsperson and primary and secondary school teams.

Two special accolades up for grabs are the club of the year and the service to sport awards.

Carol said: “Sport has a very strong community focus in Ashfield. This event provides a great opportunity to recognise both our elite performers and our countless dedicated volunteers.”
