In 2 Hockey

Welcome to new Follower Lawrence.

Boy, I've had a long day of standing on my feet today. There was a lot said during the Olympics about "Legacy" and how various sports could capitalise on what was brilliant coverage, in all fairness, by the BBC, of a huge variety of activities.

Well today, the boys Hockey Club was out in the local Town Centre, showing people, old and young alike what it was all about.

We were supported by GB Hockey, who brought a skills game along for everyone to try.

I've tattoo-ed loads of kids with Hockey sticks, handed out leaflets and signed them up to Win an iPad, from 8:30am - 5:30pm. It's been sunny all day and I got really hot at times.

Whille we chatted the children had a great time, on the Astroturf, trying to Beat the Goalie.

Now my poor feet are off for a soak in a bowl of cold water.

Lets just hope some of those who said they were interested will tear themselves away from the telly long enough to come to training and give it a proper go. Much better to be out in the fresh air, keeping fit.

Lots of Love Arwedd xx


  1. What a fantastic way to promote hockey! I think that the Women's Black Sticks (now known as the Hot Sticks) will have done wonders for the sport here in NZ LOL. There were certainly a whole lot of males of all ages watching them compete at the Olympics who had never watched hockey before :0
    Hope that you do pick up some extra players, they would get so much out of it - more fun than telly! Sx

  2. MANY many thanks for the lovely parcel which arrived here this morning - the cards are beautiful, the lavender bag just gorgeous and the wee cook book is going to be well used! Thank you xxx
