Well done to all at Forest Rec parkrun, which was recently nominated as a finalist for the Voluntary Community Group of the Year at the Nottingham City Council Sports Awards. The award was in recognition of a project or scheme, led by volunteers, that has made a significant difference to people in Nottingham city. This can include any sport or physical activity programme that increases participation, community cohesion, improves health, develops skills and learning or removes barriers to taking part in sport and physical activity. More information on the awards can be found here.
Forest Rec Event Director, Chris Foulds would like to thank all of those who have contributed to the event, especially the 100+ different people who together volunteered for over 650 hours between October 2013 and September 2014. “The whole year’s been fantastic and every member of the Forest Rec parkrun community should be very proud of themselves.”
Congratulations again to the whole team, and thank you for your continued support of parkrun.
