Well, we're one week into Lockdown 3.0 - and whilst it may be sticks down for hockey for the next few weeks look on the bright side the pitches have been frozen pretty much until this week so there wouldn't have been any hockey anyway!
So what's new this week ......
Now the Festive decorations are down, home schooling has restarted and more working from home and once a day exercise here's this weeks THC news and some hockey ideas to give everyone a hockey fix! .
Sadly we said farewell to Akeem this week as with no real prospectus now of National League hockey until March he flew home to a slightly warmer Barbados. Whilst his visit didn't quite deliver the hockey we'd hope for it was great to again have Akeem sharing his hockey skills and passion with all at THC. Once he's out of quarantine we'll be hearing a little more from him ! A huge thank to the Jon and Jo Evans and family who have kindly hosted Akeem during his stay.
Our warmest wishes go to Adam Roberts - Beavers Manager and part of out Covid Support Team who having tested positive after Christmas for Covid was caught in the grips of the illness and spent 4 days in hospital. A scary time for all and Adam is home now and recovering but has sent messages to us all to keep safe and keep doing the all little things to help to stop the spread of the virus. Adam's message to us all is 'Little things making a big difference and genuinely saving lives!' Lets keep doing the key things - hands - face - space and lets all do our bit so we can all get back to normal as soon as its safe.
