Message from Chair

Hello BHC

Firstly I hope you are keeping well during these difficult times. I thought I would write a note letting you know where we are as a club, what decisions we’ve made and what we are planning for in light of the Covid-19 situation.

As you know all Hockey activity stopped mid-March and we took some quick steps to ensure we don’t spend unnecessary funds and to protect the club as best we could;

  • We paused all contracts apart from the broadband
  • We cancelled the festival and got all funds either back or deferred till next year
  • We cancelled the end of season dinner and likewise have deferred till next year
  • We cancelled work on our new summer league plans

All leagues have now been concluded for the 19/20 seasons and we eagerly look forward to hearing about the 20/21 season. Congratulations to the Ladies 5th XI on their promotion!

In addition I would like to thank everyone for their efforts last season, with a special thanks to Brigitte (Secretary) and Roxy (Treasurer) who have decided to step down from their respective committee roles.

We are making plans for next season based on the assumption that some hockey will go ahead.

We have appointed a new secretary, Eliot Boyd & a new treasurer, Claire Bowman. I’m thrilled to have both on the committee and look forward to their expertise building on the work the committee does.

We are planning to do some works to the club house (in a social distanced, above board kind of way) so the bar area and kitchen will look different when you next see it!

We are still running a lotto draw, once a month, if you would like to support the club through these uncertain times it’s a great way of giving a small amount each month. £5 get you in with a chance to win, you can enter multiple times if you like! If you make a payment to the clubs account 20-05-00 20600970 by either setting up a standing order or making a one off payment you will be entered into the draw. Please put your name on it! And look out for the monthly draws being made which are announced on the club Facebook page.

We will host a virtual AGM towards the summer time when we will know more firmly what will occur in 20/21 season. The date of that meeting will be published early June.

Take care of yourselves and your loved ones

Hope to see you all soon
