Farewell Joan (but hopefully not goodbye!)

Joan Wall (Chair of the Association) has recently moved from Nottingham to Hampshire.

Joan has made a massive contribution to Hockey in the Midlands as a representative of Nottinghamshire on both the Midland Women’s HA and since 2000 on MRHA.  She served Notts’ for many years as Chair, Secretary and Chair of Selectors.  Joan is known as a constitutional expert and a ‘stickler’ for detail and was involved in the formation of the joint county association in 2001 and had valuable input when MRHA was constituted.

Joan has played hockey for England and was instrumental for establishing indoor hockey in the women’s game and served a period as Chairman of England Indoor Selectors.

We wish her well and would like her to know that she is welcome any time and hope she gets to see Reading HC play regularly!

Her tasks and activities are being shared between the existing committee members with Lesley Evans taking the role as Acting Chair.
