Final chance to nominate local sports star

TODAY is the last chance to nominate sporting stars from around the area for a special ceremony celebrating success and dedication throughout 2011.

A final call has been made by Alnwick and District Sports Council for people to submit entries for its prestigious annual awards night at Alnwick Playhouse on Friday, March 16.

The event is one of the highlights in the local sports calendar and swimming legend Nick Gillingham MBE will be the evening’s guest of honour.

To ensure that the standard is kept high and to recognise and reward the achievements and commitment of individuals and teams within the area, the council is wanting your 2011 nominations and once again the Northumberland Gazette has teamed up with the organisation to help.

But hurry, the deadline for entries is today.
