KCAA had the chance to congratulate 3 of its members at this year’s AGM with presentations by its chairman / EA South East Regional Council member David Ralph of 3 awards.  First there were 2 EA SE Regional awards:
Jan Duffin (Paddock wood AC & Secretary of the KCAA Sportshall Committee secretary) who received an award recognising her lifelong contribution to athletics as a volunteer.
Ashford Leisure Trust (ALT) (management group of the Julie Rose stadium) who provide a multitude of athletic services to us & others in Kent who won the Partnership Award for the second year running. Peter Le Rossignol (Development Manager, Ashford AC member & Coach) accepted the award on behalf of ALT.
Secondly Mick Paul (KCAA Treasurer, KCAA Female Team Selector & Cambridge Harriers member) who received the SEAA 40 years services to athletics certificate – which will take some beating. This follows on from him being award the Civic Recognition of Voluntary Service by Adults in 2014 by Bexley Council in April by the Mayor, which both truly recognise his lifelong contribution to athletics.
