NOMINATIONS are now open for the 2014 Herefordshire and Worcestershire Sports Awards, which will honour the top sporting talent from the two counties.
Now in its 15th year, the Sports Partnership Herefordshire and Worcestershire annual event recognises the sporting achievements and celebrates good practice within the local sporting community.
The Partnership opened registration for nominations last Wednesday and is urging members of the Herefordshire and Worcestershire community to put forward candidates who they feel deserve recognition for their sporting achievement and dedication to sport within their community.
Stephen Brewster, Director of The Sports Partnership, said: “This event is our chance to honour our local sportsmen and women, coaches, volunteers, clubs and officials.
“For the past 15 years, we’ve received such huge support for the awards and feel it’s important the local community get their say on who’s made an impact on sport, young people and local communities.
“Recognising sporting achievements and celebrating good practice within the sporting community is at the very heart of what we do and we will be championing the hard work and talent that exists within Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
“As such, we are thrilled to announce nominations for this year’s awards open and look forward to receiving and welcoming nominations in all 13 categories for our local sporting heroes.”
