Its Parents in Sport Week this week. It’s a national awareness raising campaign that’s run by the NSPCC. It aims to highlight the important role parents play in the bigger safeguarding picture of sport.
Halton Farnworth Hornets and the RFL are committed to safeguarding and promoting welfare of all of our children in our sport. Everyone who is involved with Rugby League and Halton Farnworth Hornets is entitled to feel safe and protected.
The NSPCC have created a FREE e-learning course, it only takes 10 minutes to complete. https://thecpsu.org.uk/parents/keeping-your-child-safe-in-sport/

Huge thanks to Ian Prescott and The State of Mind team who came over to Wilmere yesterday to talk about mental health.Guest speakers were Ian Knott and Danny Sculthorpe who shared their stories and held the room in complete silence.
It was very well received and appreciated by all.
Hopefully we can organise more night like this. #stateofmind#goodtotalk#zerosuicidealliance
We normally share good news stories, but sadly on Saturday 18th September 2021, Liam Walsh, aged 23, sadly passed away.
The thoughts of everyone at Halton Farnworth Hornets go out to Liam’s family friends and team mates, he will never be forgotten.
Liam started his rugby journey as a youngster with Halton Farnworth Hornets, and his ability took him on to bigger and better things as he represented his country and home town as a professional. He never forgot his roots and this year returned to the club he loved, playing once again with his team mates in the Open Age.
The support shown from the people in the Rugby League Community is really heart warming. A massive thank you to especially to the Rugby League family in Widnes – Simms Cross, West Bank Bears, Moorfield Tigers and our friends across the river in Runcorn, for your kind thoughts, it just shows how our game rises above rivalry when the need dictates.
The club has opened a Celebration of Life Book which is available for people to write in and leave their respects. There is always someone glad to see you at our club if you need to speak to someone x
Rest easy Walshy x
What an amazing Magical 24 hours we had up at Wilmere for Magic 24 2021!
It all started on Friday 10th September at 5:45pm with our Brand New HFH Cycling Club starting off on their 24 mile bike ride! Then onto 6pm and the whole club taking centre stage for the first 1 mile lap. The Crazy Gang set off running & rowing just after for their start to the 1 mile every hour for 24 hours…
Each team then took their turns every hour to run their 1 mile, amazing turn out by everyone. At Midnight it was an very emotional Memorial Walk, taking time out to remember those dear to us. Throughout the night the Crazy Gang kept on running and rowing for 1 mile every hour, until 7am when they were joined by the U11 Reds & Greens. Each team then picked up every hour to take part and complete their team lap.
The Little Stingers joined us for their weekly training session and even did their lap, (even if we did have to use the drone to keep them on track 😂). After their lap it was Graduation time for them, each getting presented with a certificate and medal.
The U14 and U11 Girls team took to the main pitch in their respective matches and kept the whole crowd enthraled! Well done girls!
At 5pm the Crazy Gang left on their final Run/Row and all met up to cross the finish line together as a team, what an amazing feat of endurance they all put their bodies through!
The day was building up to the grand finale of the Colour Dash, which didn’t disappoint. As you can see from the photos it certainly was a “Colour Dash”! What a perfect way to end the Magic 24 Weekend!
HFH would like to thank everybody for their kind donations and sponsorships, and also all of our amazing volunteers who helped to organise and run such a special event!
The running schedule for our teams has just been released. As part of Magic 24 each team is given an hour time slot to complete at least 1 lap of the Wilmere pitches, which is just over 1 mile in distance. Check out your teams time below.
Also as well as the Team Runs we’re looking for people to register for the following:
What an exciting time September will be! With growing numbers in the Under 7’s this year we’ve decided to enter another U7’s team in the North West Counties Juniors League
So joining the U7 Greens and U7 Reds will be the U7 Blacks – under the watchful eye of new coaches Lee Phillips and Simon Tickle. Great work to all involved, fantastic to see so many kids getting involved and enjoying the great sport of Rugby League.
