The annual CATS (Community Action Through Sport) Awards Evening in Bude is fast approaching and organisers are now appealing for nominations from the local area.  They're calling on individuals, groups, clubs and youth organisations to put forward the names of who they think deserves public recognition for good deeds carried out in the past twelve months.

There is no formal list dictating what actions qualify someone for an award but in recent years children and young people have been nominated for everything from rescuing visitors from rip currents off local beaches to helping the older generation learn to use computers.

Other awards have been given for coaching football and rugby teams, providing riding for disabled youngsters and arranging and running the Friday Night Splash sessions in Bude during the winter months.

CATS, which is a nationally recognised charity which started in Bude, has been holding the Awards Evening for the past nine years. It's held every spring at The Parkhouse Centre and this year takes place on Tuesday 23 April.

The awards have, so far, given recognition to over 1000 young people from Bude and the surrounding villages.

Further details are being sent to local clubs, societies, parish councils, churches and youth groups but anyone can nominate a child or young person aged between five and nineteen.

A nomination form can be downloaded from the CATS website

Alternatively forms can be picked up from the CATS Office, which is just above the Health Shopw in Lansdown Road, Bude.

Nomination forms must be returned either to the CATS Office or to Mrs S Marshall, Budehaven Community School, Valley Rd, BUDE  EX23 8DQ no later than Friday 22nd March.
