BISHOP'S Stortford Mayor Janice Elliott has issued her first Mayor's Award since taking up the position.
Cllr Elliott was "inspired" to present the accolade following a recent charity boxing night, held in partnership with Boxfit, to raise funds for the town's youth cafe.
Boxfit's Scott Gleed took part in several bouts on the evening – including facing Janice in the ring – and as a result of his "invaluable and outstanding sportsmanship" she presented him with the award.
As a regular attendee of Boxfit, held at Bishop's Stortford Rugby Club, Cllr Elliott has seen first hand Scott's commitment to his members.
"He is an inspirational boxer to many," she said.
Seb Scilly, lead supporter towards Boxfit who has helped fund various facility developments, said: “It’s great to see Scott's time and commitment to Boxfit being rewarded officially by the Mayor”.
