Celebration of Sport aims to showcase dedication to Stratford community

Stratford Editorial 9th Mar, 2021   0

AN ONLINE showcase aims to celebrate the commitment of Stratford’s sports community and its ability to adapt to the current circumstances.

Stratford District Council organised the ‘Celebration of Sport’ to recognise clubs’, groups’ and individuals’ dedication to helping themselves and others to stay active.

District councillor Ian Shenton said: “With such huge disruption to sport in 2020 we knew that we couldn’t go ahead with our usual Sports Awards. However, it’s still important that we recognise the importance our sporting community plays across our district.”

The Celebration of Sport is an online showcase of the commitment of individuals, teams, coaches, teachers and volunteers.

It includes stories from clubs and groups which have supported members and the wider community to stay active, adapted to overcome the challenges of the current circumstances and enabled people to stay connected.

Contributions were accepted from sports clubs, physical activity groups and schools located in the Stratford-on-Avon District, or individuals who live or work with them.
