Archery in Notts, the legacy project created as part of the European Archery Championship held in Nottingham in May, has been shortlisted for the Nottinghamshire Sports Awards Sporting Project of the Year.
Highlights of the project have included:
Arran Coggan, Development Manager (Participation) said: "The project, led by Amy Curnock, has done a wonderful job to create more opportunities for archery in Nottinghamshire. The shortlisting of the project is testament to Amy's dedication and the support of Nottinghamshire Archery Society, especially Mike Spare, and local partners.
"For many within the project. archery has now become a part of their weekly lives."
Amy said: "Some of the participants were trained as instructors and now deliver sessions. Some have gone on to join a club and some have just experienced a sport that they never thought they would have the opportunity to try."
The Archery in Notts project aims to create a lasting archery legacy. By creating many new opportunities, that legacy will live on through the clubs, leisure centres and community groups. It is well on its way to achieve this aim.
The winners of the Nottinghamshire Sports Awards will be announced on 1 February 2017.
