Noel Frost achieves 40 Years of Service award

Noel Frost achieves 40 Years of Service award

A 40 years' Service to Officiating award was presented to Noel Frost by Alan Bell at the recent Somerset Schools' Combined Events championships at Millfield School.  Indeed he was summoned over the loudspeaker system when he had just sat down for a short break and a quick coffee!

After receiving his award and being congratulated by all his fellow officials present, he told us, "It's very humbling to hear yourself being talked about over the loudspeaker.  I am still enjoying my time spent on an athletics track, with the comradeship of other officials.  One of my greatest pleasures is seeing young people starting in the sport, and growing and developing and maturing."

International Starter Alan Bell, who presented Noel with his award said, "It's great to be able to acknowledge the commitment Noel has given over a lifetime to our sport in his own locality. He epitomises the hard work our officials play in delivering athletics to so many people.  Well done Noel."

Not only is Noel a dedicated Level 3 Time Keeper, a member of Yeovil Olympiads but is currently President of Somerset County AA.
