I’m sure you will all join the Hotel in congratulating the Chairman of Junior Golf, Charles Sievewright, on his success at the Energize Awards ceremony in Shrewsbury on 7 November.
Energize Shropshire is the Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin County Sports Partnership and holds the awards to highlight the excellent work happening across the county and to celebrate all that is great about community sport and physical activity.
Charles, who has been associated with junior golf in Shropshire and Herefordshire for around 20 years – as junior organiser at his club, Patshull Park, and for the last four years as Chairman of Junior Golf in the twin counties – was voted the Volunteer of the Year in recognition of the sterling work he does on behalf of young golfers.
One of the two runners up in that category was Shrewsbury’s junior organiser, Richard Beason, who has done an immense amount of voluntary work for the youngsters in the club.
Sportsmen and women, together with many who operate behind the scenes to ensure the success of their sports, were honoured at a ceremony at which Olympic gold medallist, Tessa Sanderson, was the guest of honour.
Congratulations to both Charles and Richard, the only two nominees from golf in Shropshire & Herefordshire.
