Another enjoyable couple of weeks for the club with success far and wide…
Dacorum Sports Awards 2019 – Female Community Coach of the year: Verna Burgess!
This award recognised the outstanding contribution of a female coach at community-level who provides high quality coaching in a voluntary capacity. Many people have discovered new sports thanks to Verna who leads and manages cycle rides and swims almost every day of the week. She runs beginners 0-5k courses for free as a result of her passion for encouraging people to try something new.
Verna is also a member of BCC 🙂
