Services to Athletics - Recognition for Richard Nunn

England Athletics South West Region Club Awards 2008

The 2008 England Athletics South West Club Awards have been announced and it is good to see some recognition for our treasurer and membership secretary, Richard Nunn. Richard is the only person to have been a Wimborne AC committee member without a break since our inauguration in 1982 – 26 years of service and counting. Most Wimborne AC members will  know about the important roles Richard continues to play for the club, but that is just a part of the commitment he makes to promoting athletics at grassroots level.

Richard is this year’s runner up in the ‘Services to Athletics’ category in the South West Region, here is what England Athletics have to say about him:

‘Richard has been County Treasurer for many years; organised the County Track & Field Championships for several years as well as officiating at numerous T&F, Cross-Country and Road events; organises the County AGM and committee meetings and the County would be hard pushed to find a replacement; he is always around to support or give advice whenever required.

There is no one achievement that stands out, but the workload he takes on for Dorset and Wimborne AC more than makes up for this; Dorset County AA would find it hard to continue without Richard.’

Well done Richard, a richly deserved acknowledgement for all your dedication and hard work.
