Last night we attended the Nottinghamshire Sports Awards, held at the Nottingham Conference centre at NTU. The support shown for Nottinghamshire sporting talent was fantastic, and the whole evening highlighted the many talents of all of the nominees. 

There have been some incredible events take place in Nottinghamshire this past year, and in October 2015, Nottingham was named the 'home of sport'.

We were very proud to sponsor the 'Junior Sportsperson of the Year' award and a massive well done to the winner, Ellie Downie. Over the course of this last year, British gymnast, Ellie won silver on vault and uneven bars and bronze in the all-around competition. She won a historic bronze medal for the British team - the first ever individual all-round medal for a female gymnast at the European Championships.

We would like to congratulate all of the finalists from last night. Making the final is a huge achievement in itself, and shows a great deal of dedication to sport. We were completely overwhelmed by the achievements of all of the finalists, and the evening itself proved why Nottingham has been named the home of sport!
