DAVE Turner’s lifetime service to athletics has seen him pick up another award this week.
The former Nailsea School teacher, who has worked for years within Avon Schools’ athletics, has been recognised by UK Athletics and Sportshall Athletics for his outstanding contribution to Sportshall.
“I’m thrilled to get the award and very proud,” said Turner.
Last year Turner’s work was recognised by an award fro the English Schools’ Track & Field Association while closer to home he is already an Avon Athletics life member.
“I also received a community award from Nailsea Town Council for the work I was doing when I was a teacher at the school,” added Turner.
As one of the sport’s good guys Turner deserves all the recognition he gets.
