Bishop's Stortford Hockey Club Juniors
Ravenscroft were delighted to become the sponsor for the junior section of the Bishop’s Stortford Hockey Club, now known as the “Ravens” at the start of 2022.
Bishop’s Stortford Hockey club, formed in 1948, has a long and proud history with the local community, based for many years in Cricketfield Lane before moving to the new Herts & Essex Sports Centre in 2019. The sponsorship will help provide several hockey programmes for children aged from five to 16 in the local community. The sponsorship of the Bishop’s Stortford Ravens aims to encourage young players to learn and develop their hockey and team skills through sessions organised in club and community environments, as well as local schools such as Herts & Essex, Hockerill and Northgate. Any local schools that would like to participate in the programme should contact the club (firstname.lastname@example.org). The sponsorship will also support juniors to play hockey in local leagues and competitions.
Bishop’s Stortford Hockey Club Chairman Duncan Barber welcomed the relationship saying: “We are very grateful to Ravenscroft. This arrangement will help us enormously to give the young people of Stortford the opportunity to enjoy playing hockey.”
Ollie Parsons from our Bishop’s Stortford Investment team said: “We are delighted to be both associated with and sponsoring Bishop’s Stortford Ravens. We are keen supporters of grass roots sport and it’s great to be involved in the local community in this way, encouraging and enabling young people to benefit from playing hockey.”
