Entering its 14th year, the Hyndburn Community Sports Awards is a celebration of local sporting achievements from athletes, coaches, volunteers, teams, clubs and schools across Hyndburn, organised by Hyndburn Leisure.
This year there will be small presentation for the winners rather than an awards evening. Nominations will be judged by a panel, and winners of the awards will be sent on to Lancashire. All winners will be invited to the Lancashire Sports Awards, which takes place in November.
