Bourne Harriers rewarded

Have your say

THREE years of behind the scenes work at Bourne Town Harriers has been rewarded with the award of the Clubmark Award from England Athletics.

Steve Moore, Club and Coach Support Officer for England Athletics said: “Bourne Town Harriers have worked incredibly hard to achieve Clubmark accreditation and I’m very pleased they have now accomplished it.

“Successfully completing Clubmark means the club is a safe, accessible and proactive place to take part in athletics and demonstrates that the club strives to develop the highest levels of coaching practice.

“This is a fantastic achievement for the club and they are now one of only four athletics clubs in Lincolnshire to have achieved the status.

“Lisa Richardson and her team of volunteers at the club should be congratulated in particular for their hard work and perseverance.

“Although a small club they definitely ‘punch above their weight’ and have once again shown what a great club they are.”
