Peter Turnbull – Scoops another Prize

Peter Turnbull who is the UK national Audax champion notched up another award last month. The interesting point about his most recent trophy is that it was awarded by the local newspaper, The Bucks Herald. It is great to see the Willesden CC and Audax recognised outside the cycling world.

The Herald presented Peter with a trophy and a prize of £50. The picture shows Peter receiving his award from ex-sports council chairman Ray James and sponsor John Newman. The award is organised by Aylesbury Vale South Sports Council and is sponsored by The Bucks Herald. The winner is chosen from articles appearing in the paper. The award was set up 17 years ago to recognise sporting excellence or someone who has made a contribution to sport in the Aylesbury Vale.
