Some of Thanet's sports stars will be awarded for their going the extra mile at the first Thanet Sports Awards being held next week (Wednesday 11 November).

The awards have been organised by the Thanet Sports Network, a group of public, private and voluntary sector organisations, who are working together to increase sporting opportunities in Thanet.

The ceremony, which takes place at Margate's Winter Gardens between 7pm and 9.30pm, will see awards handed out in 11 different categories, including coach of the year, disabled sportsperson of the year, long service award, unsung hero, and awards for both teams and individuals.

The event will be compered by Johnny Lewis from KM-FM and the guest speaker will be Jack Green from Maidstone, who is number three in the world for 400 metres hurdles at under 20 level. He is part of the Kent support programme and will be speaking about his experiences to date.

Thanet District Council's Sport Development Officer, Martyn Cassell, said: "The first Thanet Sports Awards promise to be a really glitzy affair and an opportunity for major sporting organisations in Thanet to come together. Everyone involved in the organisation of the awards is really looking forward to the ceremony and the chance to reward those who've achieved and gone the extra mile for sport in Thanet. It will also be an opportunity to award those who've been long time servants to sport in Thanet and also those who've worked behind the scenes to help others."
