A ‘Hockey Fest’ representative said, “This will be a great weekend event for such a worthy cause and support of our club. If you have been inspired by our Team GB hockey ladies winning gold at the Olympics Games in Rio this is your time to come along and join in with hockey. There is plenty of activities to watch, play and support so bring yourself along with family and friends.”
