The Staffordshire Moorlands Sports and Physical Activity Awards, co-ordinated by the District Council, will take place in April at the Alton Towers Hotel and the nominations are now open.

With awards for individuals, teams, coaches and volunteers who live, study or work in the Moorlands there's a category to recognise sporting achievement across the spectrum.

Councillor Mark Deaville, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Leisure and Sports, said: "Sport has the ability to unite people and communities and we all have our local favourites. These awards are the ideal opportunity to celebrate that spirit and to recognise the achievements of our teams, individuals and volunteers.

"So if you know someone, or a team of people, who deserve to have their successes highlighted, please nominate them. It's easy - all you need to do is complete the short form on our website."
