Active Basildon Award

active-essexActive Basildon Awards Night

Active Basildon Awards Nights took place last night.  This year there was a Lyon’s Den pitch for clubs with an idea to introduce their sport to a wider public.  Our pitch was project Pole Vault presented by Nick Wetheridge; we want to bring in a few schools and maybe the gym and swimming  clubs, in the hope it will boost popularity of the event and we can produce more and better Pole Vaulters and coaches in Basildon.
