The annual Active Chesterfield Sports Awards took place at the Winding Wheel on Thursday 28th September. In its third year, the grand awards ceremony, delivered by the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership recognises and rewards Chesterfield’s sporting heroes.
Outwood Academy Newbold’s Silver Young Sports Ambassadors won Sports Organising Committee of the Year for their excellent work throughout the year in organising and running numerous sports clubs, activities and competitions.
In addition to this Newbold’s very own Mrs Hollingsworth was nominated for and won Sports Staff Member of the Year, due to her hard work and amazing commitment to running the Silver Young Sports Ambassadors group as well as the Sports Voice committee with the academy.
The event was a bit of a family affair with Mrs Hollingsworth’s as daughter and former Newbold student India co-presenting the awards, after an incredible year culminating in her officiating at the World Athletics Championships in London.
Other Newbold students were present as Gold Sports Ambassadors Courtney Neale and Hayley Goldsworthy-Heath helped with the running of the event on the day and Year 7 Frankie Etches took the stage as her primary school cricket team received the ‘highly commended’ award for Primary Sports Team of the Year.
Well done to all involved!
