Last Chance to Nominate for Community Champion Awards

We’re delighted to have received and read about some fantastic nominees for our 2021 Community Champion Awards which we’ve listed below.  Thank you to all of you who have taken the time to nominate and congratulations to those who have been nominated.  If you would still like to nominate someone who is missing from the list, you have until tomorrow (Thursday 28 October) at 5pm to make a nomination via

Currently we don’t have young people (11-18) nominated for our Young Sporting Superstar award, so if you know anyone who is achieving great things in sport, please nominate them.

Public voting will open next Tuesday 2 November and run until 30 November.  The voting will be accompanied by the words submitted for each nomination then too.  The winners of the awards will be announced at a special Awards Party on Friday 4 February 2022 at Henley Rugby Club, sponsored by ManningUK and we will be raising money for the Lowland Rescue Oxfordshire.
