Cllr Jonathan McShane, Cabinet Member for Health, Social Care and Culture, Hackney Council
We’ve had a great year so far for sport in Hackney with our younger residents bringing home the highest-ever number of medals for the borough at the London Youth Games recently.

The Hackney Sports Awards recognises sportspeople of every age group so I would encourage people to get nominating and help celebrate all the outstanding talent we have here.
