Community awards for sporting contributions

More than one hundred and fifty sporting stars and physical activity champions from across East Northamptonshire attended the very first district-wide Sports and Physical Activity Awards ceremony on 17 October to celebrate the sporting achievements of people of all ages and abilities.
