Ribble Valley residents still have time to nominate their sporting heroes and community champions for the 2014 Ribble Valley Sports and Community Awards.

Nominations, which will close next Friday, July 11th, can be made in the following categories: Club of the Year, Coach of the Year, Team of the Year, Adult Volunteer of the Year, Young Volunteer of the Year and School of the Year.

There are special awards for Rising Star, Lifetime Achievement and Community Engagement.

Peter Fletcher, the borough council’s sports development officer, said: “The awards, presented in August, are a fantastic opportunity for sports clubs, coaches and volunteers to get the recognition they deserve for their hard work and commitment.

“In order for the awards to be a success, we rely on clubs, coaches, players, parents, teachers and friends to nominate people who deserve to be recognised for their contribution to community sport.”

Award winners will represent the Ribble Valley at the Lancashire Sports Awards in October.
