We’re sponsoring the Active Norfolk Awards ‘Community Club of the Year 2019’

The Active Norfolk Awards is a night to celebrate and reward the physical activity achievements and sporting excellence of our county.

 This year, we are thrilled to announce that this year we will be sponsoring the ‘Community Club of the Year’ category.

This category will celebrate and recognise a club that has increased participation in the activity, has made a big difference to a community, or made great progress during the year and we are honoured to be amongst some wonderful sponsors, including: UEA Sportspark, Easton & Otley College, BBC Radio Norfolk, City College

Now in its 13th year, the Active Norfolk Awards (formerly the Norfolk Sports Awards), will be a night to recognise and honour those people and organisations that are helping the people of Norfolk to achieve their best, improve their health and well-being through physical activity, and those who are achieving incredible things in sport.

The awards night will be hosted at OPEN Norwich on Thursday 21st November, and with over 400 expected nominations will be a night of diverse, inspirational and heart warming stories.

We want to make sure that as many of our wonderful community clubs have the opportunity to be nominated: please make sure you nominate by the 6th October 2019 HERE.
