Sarah Oxley

Two of Wyre's Sports Awards winners have claimed top titles at the Lancashire Sports Awards.

Sarah Oxley, head coach at Gym Mania Gymnastics in Poulton, was awarded Coach of the Year and the Outdoor Adventure Group in Fleetwood claimed Community Club of the Year, beating rivals from local authorities across the county.

Sarah is a disability inclusive grass routes coach and has led Gym Mania to achieve GymMark accreditation. Described as inspirational, she volunteers many hours of her time and encourages young people to participate in gymnastics.

Outdoor Adventure Group, which is run entirely voluntarily, has been enabling people of all ages and abilities to participate in canoeing and kayaking for over 21 years.

Both winners were commended for their commitment to community sports provision.
