The golden summer of sporting achievement may have come to an end but the community spirit shown during the Olympic and Paralympic torch relay and the London 2012 Games will leave a lasting legacy. And the winners of our sports awards have clearly demonstrated a strong commitment to ensuring sporting activities are championed at a grass roots level.
Cllr Claire Young, Chair of the Communities Committee, said: “The 2012 awards ceremony was a great success, especially after such an incredible year for sporting achievement in the wake of the Olympics and the Paralympics. There were many worthy recipients who have achieved so much this year and their sporting accomplishments highlight the number of talented athletes and dedicated coaches that we have in South Gloucestershire. It was great to see one of our primary schools recognised for the hard work they have put into creating an Olympic and Paralympic legacy. Well done to everyone who entered, you are all winners.”
