Celebrating successes at the Hertfordshire Sports Awards

18th December 2017


Community sports clubs, coaches, volunteers and projects were all recognised at the recent annual Hertfordshire Service to Sport Awards.

Vice Chairman of Three Rivers, Councillor Martin Brooks, who presented one of the awards on behalf of the district said: “It was a fantastic celebration of sport in Hertfordshire and I was delighted to present Rickmansworth School with the Secondary School of the Year award.” 

Every year, sports personnel and volunteers commit their time and energy to Herts sports. The evening, hosted by Sky Sports F1 David Croft, acknowledged and celebrated the massive contribution that volunteers and clubs make. 

Councillor Brooks added: “It is important to have occasions like this so we can recognise and reward the outstanding contribution that clubs, coaches and volunteers make to the community sport sector. Without them sport would not be where it is today.”
