Bedford Sports Awards 2010

The evening of the 14th December witnessed the biggest ever gathering of Bedford sports people from across the borough that has possibly EVER taken place!

 

The annual Bedford Sports Awards took place in the Corn Exchange, and hosted over 350 guests. Organised by the Borough Council Sports Development Team, the event aims to recognise the many achievements and contributions that local people make to sport.

 

There were 11 different award categories and organisers received a record number of nominations from clubs, schools and individuals from across the borough.

 

The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “Bedford Borough Council has been delighted to support this event which was a fitting tribute to the growing sports talent across the borough. I congratulate all of the athletes and all of those who support them.”

 

Cllr Doug McMurdo, portfolio holder for Leisure and Culture at Bedford Borough Council, said: “Bedford has a range of sporting facilities to be proud of and I am delighted that we can help grow and maintain such a high level sporting talent. The recognition of volunteers who have given a lifetime to sport, as well as International performers, was fantastic.”
