To mark the Centenary of Berkhamsted Sports Grounds Charitable Association, which was founded in 1924, the charity has launched Berkhamsted Sporting Excellence Awards available to all clubs in the Berkhamsted area who run competitive teams and whose sport is recognised by Sport England. T

The launch took place on 6 June at Berkhamsted Golf Club attended by the Lady Mayoress Susan Jordon and many local sports clubs.

In addition, we are launching a Loans Programme for all sport and active leisure clubs who are not members of BSGCA. The charitable purpose of BSGCA is to enhance the well-being of the residents of Berkhamsted and surrounding villages through the provision of facilities for their participation in sports and active leisure. Our current members are the principal clubs in the town –
