Our President, Lionel Frewin, was delighted to witness our own Vicky Alexander, head of our ladies section, receive richly deserved recognition at the Elmbridge Sports Personality of the Year 2017 award ceremony on Friday 10th November.
In front of a large audience at the Cecil Hepworth Playhouse, Vicky received the Volunteer of the Year Award for her incredible work and dedication in developing the clubs girls and ladies rugby section which she started from scratch some three years ago.
The ceremony was honoured with the presence of guest speaker Jonathan Bell a former soldier, seriously injured in a military training accident leaving him part paralysed. On leaving the Army he has developed a career both as a very successful BBC journalist and as a competitive exponent of hand-cycling and mono skiing. He has recently been appointed an Ambassador for the military charity, Blesma which supports limbless Veterans.
