Fylde people, clubs and organisations that go above and beyond to keep the community active were celebrated at a glittering ceremony on Saturday 1st October. 

The Fylde Active Community Awards received a record number of entries and the winners were announced at the sell-out event. 

Hosted by Fylde Council’s Sports Development Team, the champions of the 11 categories included representatives from across the sporting spectrum including, running, martial arts, football, bowling and gymnastics. 

Sponsors from across the borough got involved to help organisers make it the best and most exciting awards ceremony yet. 

AFC Fylde, Danbro, Dickinsons Solicitors, Excel Fostering, RS Fitness and Spago were all delighted to be involved.  

The promotion of the awards was supported by marketing agency and creative partner, ICG and Streetwise Lancashire assisted with sponsorship and organisation of the evening. 

Ian Brookes, Sports Development Officer at Fylde Council, said: “After a two year break due to Covid we wanted to create a wonderful evening to remember and, after months of hard work and determination, I am confident we did just that! 

“We changed the name from the Fylde Sports Awards to the Fylde Active Community Awards as we wanted to broaden our reach and recognise groups and organisations that work to ensure people embrace all types of activities that will benefit their physical and mental health. 

“We had a record number of entries this year from many different clubs, organisations and individuals and it was wonderful to see companies from across the area getting involved as sponsors. 

“Here on the Fylde, we have a vibrant and successful sporting community – it is great to see the successes and achievements of all our winners officially recognised and applauded.”  

The awards ceremony took place at Ribby Hall on October 1st with BBC Radio Lancashire’s John Gilmore as compere.  

The winners of the Fylde Sports Awards go on to represent their district at the Lancashire Sports Awards.
