A very well done to Maaya-Gabrielle Hayer on being awarded her County Timekeeper and Recorder Award.
Not only did she pass two award stages in one go (almost unheard of) but she did this whilst being the youngest person in the area to achieve this qualification. Again a very well done from all the coaches and officials in the Area.
