Past Town Mayor Cllr Ray Darby was delighted that his last Civic Engagement was to join in the celebrations at Fairfield School when the Badminton Team won the Broxtowe Borough Council School’s Sports award in its category.
This was really a double or even a triple celebration for Ray:
1. He has been coaching badminton at Fairfield for over 30 years;
2. His granddaughter is a member of the Team.
Ray has close links with Fairfield were his children and now a grandchildren attend school and for many years, prior to the school becoming an Academy Ray was a school governor.
Well done to all the badminton players and Ray says watch out for these talented sportsmen and women in the future.
