Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for environment, transport and leisure, said: “There is a thriving sports scene in the borough with a huge number of grass roots clubs doing amazing work to encourage people to get involved in sport, stay active and healthy. I’m delighted we’re able to host these awards to showcase their amazing efforts and recognise their contribution to their communities. I’d encourage all residents involved in sports in the borough to make sure they nominate local sporting heroes.”
