The event is held every year to celebrate sporting achievement across the borough on an individual and club basis.
There will be nine award categories on the evening as listed below:

Attendees will be treated to a three course meal and drinks throughout the evening, followed by an inspirational talk from Natalia Cohen. Natalia’s vision is to empower others to reach their potential and overcome life’s challenges. She was part of the first all-female team to row unsupported across the Pacific Ocean. With no rowing experience prior to applying, Natalia showed how, with a positive mindset, a determined and aligned team, and a sense of humour, you can cross your own personal Pacific.
