Let's Get Moving Melton Awards 2023

Melton Sport and Health Alliance, which is led by Melton Borough Council, is delighted to launch the Let’s Get Moving Melton Awards 2023.

The awards provide the opportunity to recognise sporting successes and active lifestyle advocates across the Melton borough. Residents are encouraged to nominate people or groups within the community who they believe should be celebrated for their achievements and dedication to sports, physical activity and health. From unsung heroes to those who make things possible behind the scenes, to those who have achieved, inspired others and made a difference across our communities, there are several categories open for nominations:

Children and Young People Awards:
• Let's Get Moving School Award
• Primary School Team of the Year
• Secondary School Team of the Year
• Junior Team of the Year

Adult Awards:

• Group/Club of the Year
• Melton Inclusive Sport Physical Activity (MISPA) Person of the Year
• Sportsperson of the Year
• Let's Get Moving for Health Award

• Let’s Get Moving Outstanding Contribution Award

Criteria for each award and the nomination submission form is available at https://www.meltonsportandhealth.org.uk/lets-get-moving-melton-awards-2023.

Nominations are currently open and will close on Sunday 15th of October 2023. Once all nominations have been received an independent panel will review all submissions and create a shortlist of nominees, which will be posted on the Melton Sport and Health Alliance website ahead of the awards ceremony which will take place at Parkside on Thursday 30th November 2023.

Councillor Pat Cumbers, Portfolio Holder for Housing and Communities, said:
“The Let’s Get Moving Melton Awards allow us to celebrate individuals, teams, and group achievements. It also recognises those who are instrumental in supporting, motivating, and inspiring residents to have an active lifestyle, and those individuals who have made a change to lead a more active lifestyle for the benefit of their own health and wellbeing.

“I encourage as many people as possible to take the time out to nominate their chosen advocate, allowing us to celebrate the amazing achievements, successes and residents within the Melton Borough.”

More information and options to purchase tickets for the awards ceremony will be available closer to the event.

This event would not be possible without sponsors and support from local businesses. Some of the awards are still available for Sponsorship, interested organisations are encouraged to contact the council to discuss further.
