There is just under 2 weeks left to nominate your Creativity and Active Epping Forest Sports Awards winners.
Nominations for the Creativity Award and Active Epping Forest Sports Award will close at midnight on Sunday 10 December.
Winner of the 2023 Creativity Award, Philippa Anderson, used funding to purchase her own laptop to further her graphic design studies. Her tutor commented:
Having the laptop has enabled her to produce, research and experiment at greater depth for her coursework. Philippa gained a double distinction award for her Level 1 graphic design course; this was thoroughly deserved with her hard work and dedication. She is using her laptop to help with her Level 2 course, which she is really enjoying.
Active Epping Forest Sports Award
Rebecca Gardiner, from Epping, won last year’s Active Epping Forest Sports Award and has since been selected to be part of British Cycling’s National School of Racing programme.
