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! 🐝🏉🟢🔴⚫️

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.
