The Bristol Post Gold Star Awards are the longest running awards of their kind in the South West, celebrating people who have done extraordinary things.

 

Geoff said: “I was the Event Director, then co-Event Director of Ashton Court parkrun from 2011 to 2017. A parkrun ambassador since 2013, I’m now Lead Ambassador for the South-West of England.
