Let's get moving Active awards 2023

Get ready to cast your votes and help to find Hinckley and Bosworth's active heroes of 2023.

Hinckley and Bosworth’s Local Sport and Health Alliance Active Awards recognise all of the hard work individuals, sports clubs, volunteers, organisations and schools have undertaken to help others keep active and healthy.

Would you like to thank someone or a sports club/organisation/school for their support and to recognise and celebrate their hard work this year? Has someone helped an older person keep active by joining them on a regular walk? Do you know someone who has been the driving force behind the success of their sports club? Does your school have an inspirational PE teacher or have you as an individual taken up a new sport, and got the family to join in? We want to hear all those active health stories.

Executive member for leisure at the borough council, Councillor Mark Bools, said:

“These awards recognise and celebrate some of the great work happening in our community and enable us to thank all those who continue to help others stay active and healthy week in and week out. I urge residents to tell us about their sporting and active heroes. These nominations mean that we can still express our gratitude and highlight their successes.”
