Graham Ward:  
We have been notified of the passing of Graham Ward. Graham was an ex-President of the East Counties Hockey Association and helped push the game forwards as a coach both at County and Club level. A true legend at Wisbech Town Hockey Club, where he had been a stalwart for many years as a former Chairman, team captain and coach.
Since taking a step back from the game Graham could still be seen regularly on the sidelines at Harecroft Road where he would always have a smile and a friendly word with all of his friends in the hockey family. He will be sadly missed.
A memorial service celebrating Graham's life will be held at St Peters Church, Wisbech on Friday, 17th November at 1.00pm.

EH Governance survey 
EH is seeking responses from across hockey via on-line surveys to better understand current governance structures. We want your views about the way in which hockey is currently run and managed at regional, county and league level and whether this meets the needs of clubs and players. We want to know if you feel that it currently works well or if improvements could be made and, if so, we want your thoughts and ideas on practical solutions. An England Hockey governance review working group has been established to address the AGM resolution. The findings from the survey will be used by this group to help identify opportunities and develop best practice in governance for the benefit of our sport. More...
