What a great way to end the year!

What a great way to end the year, our 2019 England Squad has been awarded the East Hampshire District Council Junior Team Of The Year Sports Award!

We submitted our application back at the end of 2019 with the award ceremony originally scheduled for Spring 2020, but COVID-19 had other plans...

"The East Hampshire Sports Awards was a little different this year, with the event being held virtually, but we still managed to celebrate our amazing sports men and women.

On Tuesday 15 December, the winners and nominees were announced live on the @EastHantsDC Twitter account.

The usual host of the event, British athletics legend Roger Black, and EHDC Deputy Leader Cllr Julie Butler, both made virtual appearances by introducing the event and addressing the nominees through videos.

Cllr Julie Butler said: "Congratulations to all of our winners and nominees. We would have loved to have celebrated you in person, but in these circumstances we had to get creative!

"It was still an intense and exciting evening, and I really enjoyed seeing people getting involved and sending congratulations to each other. Thank you to everyone who was a part of it." - East Hants District Council Website


The tweet that confirmed our placing read...

"Southern Arts England Team takes the prize! 22 dancers trained 6 days (25hrs) a week to complete in the World Dance Championship in Croatia! They achieved fourth place against 23 countries and also managed to raised more than £9k towards their competing costs! Wow! #EHSA20 " - East Hants District Council Twitter Page
