Nominate your active inspirations for the 2019 Active Norfolk Awards!

It's official – nominations for this year's Active Norfolk Awards are now open!

Do you know a tireless club volunteer, a motivating coach, or an inspirational person who has become active to improve their health and well-being?

Now is your time to give them the recognition they deserve, by nominating them for an Active Norfolk Award.

Now in its 13th year, the Active Norfolk Awards (formerly the Norfolk Sports Awards), will be a night to recognise and honour those people and organisations that are helping the people of Norfolk to achieve their best, improve their health and well-being through physical activity, and those who are achieving incredible things in sport.

Last year female footballing star Lauren Hemp from North Walsham scooped the Young Sports Personality of the Year for her incredible accomplishments on the pitch as part of the England Under 20s, and Norwich-based Pace of Mind running group won the Activity in the Community award for supporting people living with mild to moderate mental health conditions to improve their mental and physical health.

Now it's time for you to make sure that your sporting and active inspirations get the recognition they deserve!

Nominations are now open for all the categories and close at midnight on Sunday, October 6.

This year's awards evening is on Thursday, November 21 at Open in Norwich, and will be hosted by ITV anchor Becky Jago.

Ben Jones, Director of Active Norfolk: "We're pleased to launch the Active Norfolk Awards this year. We hope the new name for the Awards encourages more people to find inspiration in people, groups, and organisations that are improving their lives through increased physical activity, as well as their sporting role models. We are looking forward to another inspirational night this year!"
