Head of leisure and community services, John Godwin, said: “This is the first year we have held these combined awards which celebrate achievements made within the sports, arts and community achievements.

“The council’s sport and arts development teams are looking to celebrate this at a local level with their new Inspire Awards as during their day-to-day jobs they comes into contact which such inspiring individuals and clubs which work hard to improve the life of residents in the borough.
