The Harriers Christmas Party at Bamford Bowling Club was a night to celebrate a great year for our juniors, with a major expansion in members and many achievements across all types of event and age group. The club has gone from strength to strength through the year and is now a developing force to be reckoned with in the Sportshall league, cross country circuit and track & field meetings.
This progress was recognised at the party when club captain David Proctor presented four awards that recognised all that is good about the club. For the first time we gave 'Spirit of Athletics' awards to two athletes who, in the collective opinion of the coaching team, had shown a consistently good level of attendance, conduct, commitment and positive attitude throughout the year. The very popular and deserving winners of these awards were Beth Greenwood and James Kramer.
Our second set of awards recognised the high standards of performance our athletes have been setting through the year with Tom Kramer and Charlotte Bowker receiving AAA Grade certificates for their efforts in the long jump (Grade 2) and 200m (Grade 4) respectively.
We intend to build on the success of these awards by expanding the range for next year, watch out for further information. In the meantime our winners for 2009 are shown above with David and their awards.
