Unsung sporting heroes will have a chance to be recognised for all their hard work at the Devon Sports Awards. Read this and more.
HOME REJECTED: Plans to build a home in Withycombe have been refused by East Devon District Council.
The plan was to build a detached home in the garden of 45 Masey Road. Exmouth Town Council had previously objected, saying it would be over-development of the site.
NOMINATE YOUR HERO: Unsung sporting heroes will have a chance to be recognised for all their hard work at the Devon Sports Awards.
Nominations for the prestigious awards, organised by Active Devon and The Exeter Foundation, opened this week.
The awards celebrate not only the players, but the clubs and teams, the coaches, the officials and the volunteers.
This year will also introduce Professional Sports Person of the Year and Professional Club of the Year categories for the first time in the award’s 10-year history.
With 11 categories in total, even more people across the county are eligible to apply and Active Devon is urging people to fill in a nomination form to ensure as many sportspeople as possible get the opportunity to be acknowledged and rewarded.
Nominations must be in by 12pm, Friday, March 1, 2013.
The new format nomination form can be downloaded at www.activedevon.org/awards2013.
GO-AHEAD: Plans to extend a Withycombe home have been approved by East Devon District Council.
The plan is for a single-storey extension at 21 Travershes Close. It had previously been backed by town councillors.
