Top sports performers rewarded
THE 2015 Bundaberg Regional Sports Awards winners have been unveiled at the annual Bundaberg Region Sports Award Presentation Dinner held at the Brothers Sports Club on Saturday night.
Bundaberg Regional Council sport and recreation spokeswoman Lynne Forgan said the region's best local athletes, officials and volunteers had been recognised for their dedication to local sport.
"I would like to extend my congratulations to all of our great sportsmen and women of the year," she said.
"There were eight categories, ensuring recognition has been given to top performers both on and off the field.
"We all know that sport simply could not operate without a solid base of people to administer and physically involve themselves in all aspects that benefit competitors and clubs.
"What is really special about these awards is the fact that they also offer recognition to those people behind the scenes who serve as club officials or volunteers."
Cr Forgan said the awards had been very successful, and it was a great night.
"It's amazing when they start reading out what these people have done," she said.
"They really deserve their awards."
The awards are the initiative of the Bundaberg Regional Sport and Recreation Advisory Group and Bundaberg Regional Council.
