Sport awards nominations

Nominations for this year’s sportMoray recognition awards will close on Friday, October 23, with the awards ceremony taking place at Elgin Town Hall on Tuesday, November 24.

A new award sponsor has come forward for 2015, with NHS Grampian sponsoring a community engagement award which will go to the club, group or organisation which has engaged with a particular community to get people more physically active or involved in sport.

That will bring the number of award categories to a record 14.

Nomination forms for all categories are available by calling 01343 563657 or e-mailing

Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 92,500 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.
