Happy New Year!

From everyone at Halton Farnworth Hornets, we would like to wish all our families and friends, a very Happy New Year!

With the new year comes the new season! And we cannot wait to get back to training, with most of our teams starting this week.

We are currently in the process of updating all our teams’ webpage information, it is great to see so many teams registering for the 2022 season, what a great one it’s going to be!

And with the renovation of The Wilmere Lounge coming to a close, we certainly cannot wait to get in and start using the amazing space that’s been created for all our teams to use for years to come!

Lots to look forward to in 2022 plus the arrival of our brand new Mascots – Griffo & Stingo

The future is bright, the future is Hornets! 🐝🏉🟢🔴⚫️

Thank You!

A huge ‘Thank You’ to everyone who managed to brave the weather last weekend and donate to our Christmas Toy Appeal. The response from everyone at the club was amazing, so thank you!

 

“@haltonfarnworthhornets I be honest here I am finding it very hard to be able to do a picture of all the stuff you donated within the club for the toy appeal there was so much of it like we are talking at least 10 bin bags and 4 boxes of donations all collected it’s been truly overwhelming ❤️ and I cannot thank each and everyone who has helped and supported the Halton toy appeal this year (I am going to do my best to provide pics) but didn’t want to wait any longer in saying what am amazing collection of donations I received thank you all for your hard work in organising it will help so many children this Christmas thank you all you did amazing without the likes of yourselves we couldn’t do what we do am overwhelmed and to mrs mac who delivered in the pouring rain twice as she couldn’t fit it all in the car the first time thank you all your amazing 🤣

Christmas Toy Appeal

It’s around this time of the year we start thinking about those less fortunate than ourselves. The last few years we’ve collected donations for the homeless and the local food bank and the response has been breathtaking, thank you.

The majority of our members are children and as an adult, the thought of a child waking up without a gift on Christmas Day is hard to comprehend. With this in mind, we have decided to collect donations for the Halton Christmas Toy Appeal. This organisation not only helps local groups such as the food bank and women’s refuge but also helps individuals and families within our community.

We would like to ask all our members who are able, to donate a brand new toy or gift for a child of ages from birth upto 18 years of age, girls and boys. We intend to collect all donations on SATURDAY 4TH DECEMBER at the Hornet’s Nest between 10am to 6pm.

If you would like to donate but unable to make that date, please speak to Anne Marie Yates or Sharon McLean who will be happy to arrange a collection.

We are confident given the response to previous appeals that you will once again amaze us in your kindness and generosity.
Many thanks.

Meet your new Vice President!

Ian Yates joined the club back in 1985 which was then Halton Hornets. Ian has held various roles, coach, club Chairman, and for many years until recently Club secretary.

He was ‘an’ instrumental member in the merger with Farnworth Ring ‘O’ Bells forming what is now Halton Farnworth Hornets.Ian was also the recipient of the clubs highest award the President trophy for his services and hard work for the club.

During his time at Halton Farnworth Hornets, Ian has seen so many players turn professional from the club and in reference to his comments in the 25th anniversary celebrations. “Never underestimate the name you are representing, to coaches, parents and players stay loyal and committed to the colours”

Ian’s workload as secretary doubled with an increase in registered teams, now at 24!

Ian has done so much for the club and although his role will be changing, passing the secretarial role to Paul Martin. Ian will continue to assist the club as Club Administration working along side Paul and the rest of the Executive team.

From all of us at Halton Farnworth Hornets congratulations in your new role, and for all the hard work you’ve done at the club 👏
