The Canterbury and District Sports awards are looming, and there's still time to make nominations - in fact you have until this Friday (8th October 2010).

There are eight categories in the awards – junior and senior sports performer of the year, junior and senior club of the year, disabled sports achiever, unsung hero, coach of the year and a special community award. Nominations can still be made online by visiting the Active Canterbury website.

A panel from Active Canterbury will be deciding on the top three nominees from each category, presenting the awards at a prestigious dinner at The University of Kent on 12th November 2010.
This from Canterbury City Council:

The community award – sponsored by the Kentish Gazette – is new this year and will be presented to an inspirational person, innovative project or an accessible club or scheme that has made a positive impact on the community.
This could include someone who has raised a significant sum of money in completing a sporting challenge for a local charity, or someone who has set up a local group encouraging people to get active and support their community.
The Canterbury and District Sports Awards is organised by Active Canterbury and sponsored by Safety Net Associates, McDonalds, Herne Bay Mobility and the Kentish Gazette.
Active Canterbury is the district’s community sports network, responsible for increasing participation in sport and physical activity across the district. Organisations involved include Canterbury City Council, the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, Canterbury High School, Herne Bay High School, Active Life Ltd, Polo Farm Sports Club and many of the major local sports clubs and organisations.
The Active Canterbury website is home to details of all the different ways to get active in the district, from cycle paths, walks in the country and fitness classes to the many local sports and activity clubs.
