Jon Sidaway has been awarded Sussex Golf Young Volunteer of the year, pictured right receiving the trophy from Matt Warwick, County Development Officer. Jon has been an essential member of the team supporting junior golf at both Horsham and Cuckfield. Right from the beginning his ability to connect and interact with the children was obvious, his inspiration proved invaluable when faced with the challenge of getting 350 boys and girls to enjoy playing golf in just one day – as Jon did in Horsham last summer! His involvement led him to complete his Level 1 coaching qualification.
Jon is a very worthy winner of the Young Volunteer award, and receives the trophy and a voucher from Your Golf Travel, the sponsors since 2012.
There are many volunteers working hard in our golf clubs. Please take time to thank these special people who give so much – full details on how to make a nomination for the 2015 awards will be announced later in the year.
