Opening Ceremony for New Astro

Posted by WHC Secretary Admin Account on 10 September 2019

The new FIH-accredited astro was formally opened on Saturday 7th September by President Steve Kinsella and Chairman Bruce McLennan. The weather was perfect for the occasion and the pitch looked fantastic - thanks to James Dukes for the aerial photograph.

Bruce gave a short address to mark the occasion, remembering Jim Barrow. He also thanked all members of WPAL and the WCH committee for their work and time to make this project a reality for the club while acknowledging the vital contribution from Sport England. Steve then cut the orange ribbon (with orange scissors of course !) to declare the pitch open.

An informal mixed club game then followed open to all ages, loosely a President's v Chairman match - although there did seem to be at least 14 a side at one stage. Needless to say, a good time was had by all !

Thanks also to Dave Simmons for his usual excellent work on pre-match preparations.
