Chairman’s Statement

Chairman’s Statement following the EGM on 12th June 2019
WHC held an EGM last night following the announcement of the proposal to build a Hockey Centre at Perdiswell. It was described as the most significant meeting since the formation of the club.
A packed meeting room of club members, Vice presidents, honorary life members and a few invited guests including Andy Mitchell of the Worcester News came to an open explanation of the plans for the build and to vote as to whether to support the proposal.
Following a presentation of the details, and the opportunity to pose questions the Club voted unanimously in favour of supporting the project.
The next steps involve waiting for Council planners to approve the next stage and for the club to dig deep and get involved in some significant fundraising for which a Fundraising Committee has been formed though still has space for others to join.
The atmosphere in the club after waiting so many years for their own home was understandably very positive. The Club president Robin Brighton stated: “After so long it is wonderful to see the Council, the Club, and RGS come together to create something that will benefit so many people, especially young people in Worcester.”
The club expressed their sincere gratitude to Andy Waters (Vice Chairman of WHC), Ian Roberts (Bursar of RGSW) and Richard Savory (Rise Partnership). It is evident that without their tireless work over the past years we as a club would not have reached this milestone. Still a way to go, but a large and significant step was made for WHC and its members.
