Last week, I helped honour local sporting heroes and stars at the annual Sport Woking Awards.
The awards celebrate talent and achievement in sport and recognise the men, women and young people who contribute to Woking’s sporting excellence. During the evening, the gathered audience heard inspiring stories of sportspeople whose work makes the lives of people in Woking healthier and happier.
The evening also provided the opportunity to celebrate Team Woking’s success at the Specsavers Surrey Youth Games, where Woking won the overall medal table.
I think Woking Borough has a thriving sports scene, as Mayor I have visited many of the clubs and tournaments and seen first hand the dedication and talent we have in the Borough and the hard work of the coaches and volunteers who help our sports people to excel. I am proud that world class sports men and women, like Jamie Lewis and Louisa Piper, call Woking their home.
The winners of each category were presented with a commemorative trophy, and will have the chance to represent Woking Borough at the Surrey County Sports Awards, which will be held in early December.
