The awards ceremony takes place on Monday 12th December at Bedford Corn Exchange. However, the deadline to nominate a person or a team for one of the 11 awards on offer is November 23rd.

 

Councillor Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said: “Bedford Borough can boast superb sporting talent, and of course a range of high quality sporting facilities. These awards are a fitting tribute to everyone who helps to promote sport in Bedford Borough, from our Olympic hopeful athletes to the volunteer coaches who give up a huge amount of their own time to train our younger athletes.

 

“Last year’s event proved a huge success, with a record number of guests and nominations and I am sure we can enjoy another fitting tribute to the borough’s sporting pedigree.”
