2022 promises to be a really exciting year for Surrey County sport as well as Globally, Nationally and Regionally and reminds us of the power and importance of sport to enrich our lives. Athletes, parents, coaches and officials as you emerge from COVID restrictions; anyone involved in athletics will see that it is your involvement that really does make amazing things happen.
As I finish my enjoyable time as Surrey President, I am looking forward to a busy programme of indoor athletics, cross-country along with a Home Commonwealth Games and summer full of Track & Field events. I hope everyone involved (athletes, coaches, Officials, parents) will continue to start the year strong and go for that ‘PB’ where ever (and whatever) it may be.
I would like to pay tribute to all who create an environment that is inspiring and filled with creative energy. Long may we create pathways to enable young athletes to move through school, club and County athletics to compete for Great Britain as young Will Barnicoat most recently did. We should never doubt that sport has the power to change lives. Let us all continue to try to do everything we can, to extend the advantages that we all know come from playing sport, to every part of Surrey in 2022.
