PEOPLE in the Ribble Valley still have time to nominate their sporting heroes and community champions.

Nominations for the 2012 Ribble Valley Sports and Community Awards are open until Friday, June 15th. The awards will be presented at a glittering ceremony at The Grand, Clitheroe, on July 27th.

Nominations can be made for: Club of the Year, Coach of the Year, Adult Volunteer of the Year, Young Volunteer of the Year and School of the Year. There are also special awards for Rising Star and Lifetime Achievement.

Chris Hughes, Ribble Valley Borough Council’s head of cultural and leisure services, said: “The awards are a fantastic opportunity for community sports clubs, coaches and volunteers to get the recognition they deserve for their hard work and commitment.

“They pay tribute to residents, young and old, who perform at the highest level of local sport, or dedicate their time tirelessly week in, week out, to support local clubs and facilities.

“Interest in this year’s awards has been high and we are looking forward to a fabulous ceremony on the opening night of the Olympics.

“There is still time to make a nomination and we are asking as many people, clubs and organisations as possible to make nominations, so that Ribble Valley can play its part in this landmark year for British sport.”

The winners will go on to represent Ribble Valley at the Lancashire Sports Awards in September. For more information on how to nominate, phone Ribble Valley Borough Council on 01200 425111 or visit its website: www.ribblevalley.gov.uk
