They have all achieved excellence in their own fields and it is only right that we should recognise them in this way. I hope that our young people will take inspiration from their achievements and will strive to follow in their footsteps."

The banners are available for use by any club, school or other organisation who wishes to promote sport within Stevenage. To book use of them please contact Louise Gallagher on 01438 242248.
