Fitness guru rewarded

A KEEP fit trainer from Brinsley was awarded the first ever life membership award by the Keep Fit Association.

Jackie Gilman, who has just retired as chairman of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Keep Fit Association (KFA), was presented with the award for her 40 years service at a recent meeting in Nottingham.

Jackie was chair of Nottinghamshire KFA from 2000 and became chair of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire KFA when the two counties merged in 2007.

New KFA chair Brenda Coldwell said the award acknowledged Jackie’s loyalty and dedication.
