Moffat's Jog leader honoured

THE ENTHUSIASM and hardwork of a Moffat woman was honoured in a ceremony in Glasgow at the weekend.

Rhona Robinson was named as Leader of the Year at the Scottish Athletics Annual Awards Dinner for her efforts in establishing Jog Moffat.
Special guest Steve Cram attended the glitzy bash which saw community efforts praised and volunteers honoured.
Head of jogscotland Billy Mitchell said: “It was a tremendous evening, with the chance to show our appreciation for three very worthy winners.
“Rhona Robinson, our Leader of the Year, only set up Jog Moffat in February but has already established thriving adult and children’s groups, as well as family sessions.
“Her dedication and productivity are truly incredible — but most importantly, her enthusiasm and sense of fun have inspired everyone involved.”
Rhona coordinates a huge spread of activities for every age group and in addition to adult groups, children’s sessions are held at Moffat Academy with support of Active Schools, with more than 70 children from P2 to P7 taking part and a waiting list to join.
Family sessions are also held, for family groups of any age and composition to get active together and take away ideas to use between sessions.
Rhona inspired so much interest from potential Jog Leaders for the group when it was started, that they were able to host their own Jog Leaders and Junior jogscotland courses in Moffat.
