Celebrate someone special and nominate by 4th April!

As a Club we’d like our members, and wider friends and volunteers, to give us their nominations for the “The Woodie Award for the Club Member of the Year”.

This award is presented in memory of Heather Smith (aka Woodie). Woodie was a larger than life member of the PRHC hockey family, and who embodied the sort of spirit that we're renowned for. Woodie sadly passed away in June 2014 but the award honours her memory by recognising the contribution of people that show similar team spirit and attitude that she showed.

In this special 10th anniversary year, who do you think is deserving of the Woodie award for this season?

Who do you feel works hard for the benefit of the Club, possibly behind the scenes or maybe the ‘unsung hero’ doing some of the dirty jobs that keep things running. Does someone inspire you that you would like to recognise?

This person can be a volunteer helper, a player, a parent, a coach or umpire. The nominations can come everyone in the club, across the adult and junior sections, so everyone is invited to nominate their own hero for this season!

You provide the shortlist and the Committee will review the nominations and decide on the eventual winner.

Please reply by Thursday 4th April with the name of the person you would like to nominate, with some words about why you’re nominating them and send them to Jackie Batten-Lincoln (Club Secretary) via Pitchero or using

We look forward to hearing from you all with your nominations.

Best regards

Simon Prinn
Club Chairman
