Merit Awards

Merit Awards

CSSC is dependent on the hard work and dedication of a large number of volunteers who deliver sport and leisure opportunities to our members. Each year the Chairman of CSSC makes up to ten awards to individuals who have made an outstanding voluntary contribution to CSSC. In reaching this decision he is advised by a small advisory group drawn from CSSC's membership. 

The length of qualifying service remains at ten years, but exceptionally a Merit Award could be given after seven years to reflect the changing trends in volunteering. 

Recipients receive a silver badge engraved with their name and a certificate signed by the Chairman.
