The club has a number of cups, shields and awrds that are given to outstanding club members each year. In addition the Board has also initiated two additional awards which will eb given each year at the AGM.

Unsung Hero Award

The club would like to recognise those members, volunteers and staff that have given the VMCC service that goes above and beyond the norm. For more details about this award please see flyer. To nominate someone for an Unsung Hero Award please click here

Long Service Award

In 2021 to mark the club's 75th Anniversary we asked members who had acrued over 50 years of membership of the club to come forward and be recognised with an award and certificate. This highlighted some amazing members, some of whom had belonged to the club for over 70 years!! The Club would like to continue this practice of recognising members with over 50 years of membership.
