Nominate your Melton sports and fitness champions
Let’s Get Moving Melton Awards 2023 celebrate unsung heroes, those who make things possible behind the scenes, people who have achieved and others who have inspired others.
Residents are encouraged to nominate people or groups within the community who they believe should be recognised for their achievements and dedication to sports, physical activity and health.
Deadline to nominate candidates for the awards, organised by Melton Sport and Health Alliance, which is led by Melton Borough Council, is Sunday October 15 with presentation night scheduled for Thursday November 30.
Councillor Pat Cumbers, the council’s portfolio holder for housing and communities, said: “The Let’s Get Moving Melton Awards allow us to celebrate individuals, teams, and group achievements.
"It also recognises those who are instrumental in supporting, motivating, and inspiring residents to have an active lifestyle, and those individuals who have made a change to lead a more active lifestyle for the benefit of their own health and wellbeing.
“I encourage as many people as possible to take the time out to nominate their chosen advocate, allowing us to celebrate the amazing achievements, successes and residents within the Melton borough.”
