THE annual Herefordshire and Worcestershire Sports Awards is inviting the Wyre Forest residents community to nominate the top sporting talent from the two counties.

The event recognises the sporting achievements and celebrates good practice within the sporting community.

The partnership is urging residents to put forward candidates who they feel deserve recognition for their sporting achievement and dedication to sport.

Stephen Brewster, director of The Sports Partnership, says: “This event is our chance to honour our sports men and women, coaches, volunteers, clubs and officials.

For the past 15 years, we’ve received huge support for the awards and feel it’s important the 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 today and look forward to receiving and welcoming nominations in all 13 categories for our sporting heroes.”

The awards, which is attended by more than 250 amateur and professional sports people, local businesses and dignitaries, will take place on Tuesday, November 4 at Sixways Stadium.
