The club also celebrated the award given to club secretary and coach Ros Edwards at the British Judo National Awards 2017 where she was a finalist in the ‘Event Volunteer of the Year’ section.

Ros was given the bronze award for all her work across the country for grass roots judo.

“We have plenty of events coming up through the year and we have been active already delivering judo sessions to 85 students at Littleport Academy School throughout January. 2018 looks set to be an even better year for Littleport Judo Club!”
