Swim volunteers gets Herts awards

06 January 2013

REPRESENTATIVES of Hertfordshire Swimming were among the winners at the annual Hertforshire Service to Sports Awards 2012.

The prestigious event, hosted by Sky Sports' David Croft, saw Hemel Hempstead Swimming Club's Andrew Farrow (Admin and Membership Secretary) finish third in the Volunteer of the Year (Over 21) category.

Andrew's engraved glass trophy will go on display in the club's trophy cabinet in SportSpace, Hemel Hempstead. Joan Keevill, Club Chair, said: "This is fantastic recognition for one of our hardest and most valued workers - it's also great for the club.

"We will definitely be entering more of our volunteers next year, perhaps even the Club of the Year, as it's our 100th anniversary next year."

Another worthy winner was Hertfordshire ASA's Ian Mackenzie, who won a Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition for his lasting and significant voluntary contribution to sport in the county.

Ian said: "I didn't even know until the Friday before that I'd been nominated, it was a real surprise!"
