Littleton wins award

Double Award For Littleton Sailing Club

Littleton Sailing Club has been awarded the title of Best Sports Club in the Borough of Spelthorne in Middlesex. This accolade, an annual award,  is given by Spelthorne Council in recognition for outstanding activities in sports in the 2018 Spelthorne Sports Awards. The ceremony on 9th October at Shepperton Studios saw ten awards made.

In recent years Littleton Sailing Club has been successful in other categories, but this is the first time Littleton has won the overall award  for the best sports club. This is down to everything Littleton does as a club, and the fact that the club is passionate about sailing. This is very much a shared award amongst all members who can take great pride in being recognised in this way.

At the award event, the audience was treated to a speech from Debbie Flood, double Olympic silver medallist in rowing,  on the power of persistence, and how, by continuing with your aims, along with commitment and dedication, high levels can be achieved. The award ceremony was in the presence of the Mayor of Spelthorne, Mrs Jean Pinkerton.

At the ceremony, well known  Littleton member Jo Lloyd also won the award for Volunteer of the Year, for her dedication to duty co ordination in running for many years  the Club’s Dutyman system by which all members are rostered for their club tasks throughout the year. Well done Jo, richly deserved recognition.

With 150 sports clubs in the Borough of Spelthorne, these awards are prestigious, and along with other awards won on previous occasions confirm that Littleton Sailing Club is a really active sports club and is recognised by the local community.

Well done Littleton.
