The Chair of North Tyneside Council, Councillor Wendy Lott, hosted a reception for the winners of a Badminton award set up by a former Chair of the Council, Councillor John Carter, who became a great fan of the sport during his year as Chair.

Councillor Lott presented the shields for the most promising under 12’s girl and boy in Northumberland to Naomi Silva and Ryan Cockett.

Neither hails from North Tyneside – Naomi attends school in Bedlington and Ryan in Gosforth.  Northumberland Badminton Association is most grateful to North Tyneside Council for their continued support for Badminton. 

Councillor Lott congratulated Naomi and Ryan and wished them every success in the future.
