Updated: 3 December 2018

Sports clubs, coaches and community projects recognised at awards evening

Community sports clubs, coaches, volunteers and projects were all recognised on Tuesday 27 November, at the annual Hertfordshire Service to Sport Awards.

Three Rivers District Council’s Play Rangers project was the  winner of the Community Project of the Year category.

Cllr Chris Lloyd, Lead Member for Leisure,   presented the Director Award on behalf of the District said: “It was a fantastic celebration of sport in Hertfordshire and I was delighted to see our Play Ranger team be successful in the community project of the year. It’s a fantastic achievement by an amazing and dedicated team providing outdoor sport and learning opportunities for children and young people across the district.”

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

Sara Bedford, Leader of the Council, added: “It is important to have occasions like this so we can recognise and reward the outstanding contribution that sports clubs, coaches and volunteers make to the community sports sector. Without them, sport would not be where it is today in Three Rivers and across Hertfordshire.”

Cllr Lloyd added, “I’ll be encouraging every local club to nominate and recognise their role in community sport in next year’s awards.”
