Graeme has been a basketball coach to both children and adults between the ages of 3 to 70 in the local comunity for the last 40 years. He has single handedly kept the Beacon Basketball club going for over 40 years, fighting for a court to play on when the Beacon was closed, securing an alternative venue and importantly fighting for court time when the Beacon reopened. Graemes input means a lot to the local community where opportunities for young people are few and far between, he has kept many a youngster on the right track by taking the time not only to coach them basketball but to value then as an individual. Graemes commitment means that he gives up most if his evenings and weekends to coach teams, run tournaments and referee matches. For this commitment I can think of nobody who deservesthe honour of carrying the flame more!!
