Nominations are now open for the 2018 Farnham Sports Awards through the Active Surrey website - celebrating Farnham’s sporting heroes over the past 12 months and beyond.

Awards will be presented in a number of categories at the Farnham Sports Awards evening at Farnham Rugby Club in October - with the winners from each district going forward to contest the Surrey Sports Awards, where Farnham has enjoyed unrivalled success in recent years.

In 2017, among other Farnham successes, Rachel Morris won the Surrey Sports Personality of the Year award. And in 2018, there has been no shortage of successes, great voluntary commitment and great sporting stories to celebrate.

Marion Stockley, secretary of the Farnham Sports Council said: “There are so many talented and high achieving sports men, women, boys and girls in Farnham, that we’d love to give them the recognition they deserve.

“There are also categories for successful sports teams and clubs, as well as coaches, disabled sports people and those who give great service to local sport.

“We’d strongly encourage our local sports clubs, and individuals, to check out the Active Surrey website for all the award categories and a nomination form.”

One of the Farnham judges, Sue Keogh, added the judging panel would welcome applications in respect of any deserving individual, team or club, but urged people to follow the criteria set out by Active Surrey “as closely as possible”.

This year’s awards evening will feature a guest speaker, Chris Finill, one of only a few runners to have run every London Marathon since it started in 1981.

The nominations window closes at the end of August.
