Coming soon in North Herts

Thanks especially to Mike, we are one of the most active members of the Sports North Herts. Yesterday evening was filled by one of their quarterly meetings, and a few things that came up - though not directly rugby related - sounded interesting.

In no particular order...
  • North Herts currently gives grants for "elite" sports people (see earlier article), but does not have any "hardship" fund - ie. to assist potentially talented sports people who, perhaps, might need some help with equipment or travel to trials etc., but SNH are now going to look at setting up such a fund.

  • An inter-club rugby forum bringing together all local clubs to discuss matters of common interest is planned for September. As this means that officials from both Letchworth and Hitchin will be in the same room together the UK Peace Keeping Force has been put on stand-by... However, more seriously, it will give us the chance to ask other clubs, face-to-face, what they do with their girls after the age of 12.

  • On 24th August there will be "mini-Olympics" events across North Herts, including the Sports Centre. Quite what this will involve, and whether there will be room for us to get involved in some way, is as yet unclear. Rugby isn't an Olympic sport, obviously, but its not impossible that they might not have some sorts of athletic events that we might take part in as a team, for instance.

  • Over-45 Games. The other end of the line from Youth Games. Apparently a pilot event at Hatfield went very well a few months ago and so a North Herts Over-45 Games is now being considered for next year. You may want to start putting your parents through a training programme now - especially as the Hatfield event included tag rugby.
