For me, Winchester District Sports Awards, is one of the highlight events of the year when we take time out to thank all of the shining stars, volunteers and coaches who make the District so special in terms of how we view sport and Physical Activity. The quality and quantity of the nominations we receive each year always amazes me and it is a joy to read through each and every one of them.
