The Nest, a community hub located in Horsford and affiliated with the Community Sports Foundation, has been declared this year’s recipient of the Prestigious Commitment to Sport Award, generously sponsored by The Centre of Excellence for Sport, Outdoor Leadership, and Uniformed Services at Easton College, as part of the Norfolk Education Awards.

Situated on a sprawling 22-acre property, The Nest boasts an impressive array of sports facilities, including a well-lit 3G pitch and top-notch grass football fields. Its diverse offerings cater to a wide spectrum of individuals, encompassing kids’ football courses, walking football, group fitness classes, and free running groups that prioritize mental well-being. Beyond its role as a sports facility, The Nest takes immense pride in fostering a vibrant community spirit, supporting and enriching the broader sporting community throughout Norfolk.

The panel of judges was highly impressed by The Nest’s unwavering dedication to providing sports activities for all age groups, citing strong evidence of its commitment to community engagement. The judges also underscored the pivotal role played by The Nest’s free activities centered around mental health, recognizing their growing importance in today’s society.

Reflecting on this significant achievement, Stevie Bramble, Director of Education & Programs at The Nest, expressed profound gratitude, remarking, “It means a lot for The Nest in terms of how far we’ve come in the last four to five years as a venue that started off as a derelict piece of grass. It’s really a reward for all the partners that have helped us get there.

Whether it’s those that have donated financially or those that have undertaken incredible feats like climbing mountains and running 10k races to raise funds for our development. The Nest is a venue, of course, but the magic that happens is because of the people that work with the young people that we’re engaging with.”
