NBA Secretary, Norma Waterfield, was one of only 4 people to receive a North Tyneside Chairman’s Gold Commendation Award in recognition of all her voluntary work developing badminton in North Tyneside.
The award was a complete surprise to Norma, who was nominated by Ponteland coach, Phil Hall. Norma was unable to attend the presentation as she was on holiday in France at the time. North Tyneside volunteers, Viv Harmer and Rene Waugh, collected the award on her behalf. Pictured in the photo below are Rene, Viv and Phil having just passed on the award to Norma.
