CLEVEDON RFC head coach Kim Hazeldine has recently won a prestigious award.

Kim was awarded the Airbus outstanding contribution to a lifetime of sport award at the South Gloucestershire sports awards ceremony.

Having played over 800 games for Aretians, formerly Henbury School Old Boys based in Little Stoke, Kim coached Aretians after retiring as a player before joining Clevedon.

Further demonstrating his commitment and loyalty, he has been instrumental in supporting Aretians by giving his time freely, coaching, running festivals and competitions, taking teams away to matches, refereeing, fund raising and developing the game of rugby.

His passion for sport led him to teaching where he started as a teacher at Filwood, from there he became the PE co-ordinator and deputy head at Elm Park Primary School in Winterbourne.

During this period he played an integral part in his schools development of notably setting up the Schools PE Association that has been responsible for tens of thousands of young people taking part in local competition.
