Many thanks to the Newent Daffodil Lodge of Freemasons. Newent Hockey Club were very pleased to receive funding from the Lodge to purchase sets of small goals for broadening the opportunities for playing hockey in the local area.
For most of the 2019/20 season we have been getting 40 plus juniors regularly to training on a Tuesday evening at the Newent School pitch.
The money we received has gone towards purchasing mini portable goals so that small sided games are possible for the children to gain experience and skills in a game situation. We also purchased sets of goals suitable for Walking Hockey which is proving increasingly popular for introducing the game to adults and to allow older players to continue playing in a friendly sociable environment.

We would like to express our grateful thanks to Newent Runners who have kindly awarded us a generous grant of £300. This will really help us in our quest to develop young hockey players. We will be using the money to help provide equipment for our junior goalkeepers.
Particular thanks go to Helen Kelly (Chair of Newent Runners). You can find out more about Newent Runners on their website or facebook page.
