Senior players (13 and over) - Open pitch session at new Beldams Lane pitch - Sunday 1st Sep 10am-12midday

30 Aug 2019

Dear ##firstname##,

Im delighted to announce that we are now able to get our first look at and use of the new pitch at the Herts and Essex Sports Centre on Beldams Lane.

We have been given access this coming Sunday morning the 1st September between 10 am and 12 midday.

All players elligible to play adult hockey (so those aged 13 or over) are invited to come along and have a knock about. Depending on numbes we may well run some fun mixed games or even a mini tournament.

The main building and roads at the Beldams Lane site are still not open and are under the control of the builders, so we all will have to enter via the back gate which can be found off of Cavell Drive next to the Hospital. Please do not go to the main entrance off of Beldams Lane as you will not be able to access from here.

Obviously this will be our first time using the pitch and we have no official parking, so please try to walk if you live close enough or share cars, get lifts, etc. If you do have to drive please park sensibly and do not block roads or driveways. There was some local opposition to the facility before it got planning and tempers can run high, so lets not upset the neighbours before we begin!!

Remember there will be no facilities for us to use at the pitch including changing rooms or toilets, so bring what you need with you.

Besides that, I look forward to seeing you Sunday and hope that you will be as pleased with the new facility as we are!
