Search begins for High Peak sports heroes

A SEARCH is underway for the High Peak’s unsung neighbourhood sports heroes.

The deadline for High Peak Borough Council’s annual Community Sports Awards is Friday August 19.

Anthony McKeown, executive councillor for community services, said: “We’re looking for nominations of talented sportspeople, coaches and volunteers plus stalwarts who’ve been involved in sport for years or have helped make their workplace active and healthy.

“If you know someone who’s achieved great things in sport, then now’s the time to tell us about them.

“Sport plays a vital role in promoting healthy lifestyles, bringing communities together and fostering teamwork.

“Now, the public can play a major part in celebrating the achievements of those who keep sport alive and well in the High Peak.”
