June 2020 Newsletter


Romford HC


Message from the Chair

I hope everyone is staying safe and well in the current times. I thought it would be nice for you to receive this newsletter so that you are aware of what is going on for the club at the moment despite the lockdown. We will be looking to hold an AGM as soon as we are able to under the current guidelines but, in the meantime, see below for more information and, if you would like to get involved or help with anything, please let us know.



Social Media

As many of you would have seen, we have been spending time in the background consolidating and updating our social media platforms. Please share and like the pages and posts (links to the right). This is free advertising for the club and the best way to attract new members.

Sponsorship and advertising

If anyone knows someone who would be interested in sponsoring the club for the new season or would like to advertise with us, please let us know. We are working on a sponsorship and advertising structure that we are hoping to be able to distribute in the very near future.

New Kit

We have been in touch with the new kit suppliers who have informed us that the factory has now re-opened following their shutdown and orders are being processed and that our order has been shipped to the warehouse so we will have the kit in time for the start of the new season.


We have held a couple of virtual quiz nights over the last couple of months and will be looking at holding another one soon. Well done to Rob and Nick for organizing and running these. If anyone has ideas or suggestions on other events then please email us.








We are currently in talks with Bower Park to discuss being able to use the pitch on a couple of evenings to commence training under the social distancing guidelines. We will let you know as soon as this has been agreed. We have the guidance from England Hockey (available here) and, there is a free webinar for social distance coaching practices coming soon if anyone would like to sign up, click here.

Online courses

There are several umpires Level 1 courses available online throughout July and August. Click here to sign up. We are able to subsidise the cost of the course in exchange from a commitment from you to umpire for the club in the future.


If you wish for anything to be included in the next newsletter, please email us.
