Denbighshire Community Sports Awards 2019 – Volunteer of the Year

Congratulations to Iona for winning Volunteer of the Year, nominated by her daughter Rhian. Bethan Jones, Debbie Miller, Chrissie Mayes and Jan Smith were also there to cheer, much to Iona’s surprise.

The Stones were also included in the nominations for the Sport in School Award for the Triathlon Club at Myddleton College, and past member Huw Jones won Junior Sports Performer of the Year for his cross country running achievements. It was an inspiring evening with an excellent talk by Paralympic swimming gold medallist Liz Johnson from South Wales.

Perhaps something that other members, teams or coaches could be nominated for next year…

Introduction to Polocrosse

At Equity on 16 February 10am-12pm. If you would like to give this a go, then please contact rachel.davies@waterco.co.ukNo experience required, there will be an hour on ponies, half an hour on foot and possibly a small display by current playing members. If there is enough interest a session in March and April will be booked.

On the 25/26 April there is a tournament which will be a qualifier for Pony Club Championships. I will also look to hold a badge day over Easter for those that participate in the training.

Equipment – we can provide bandages and over reach boots if you don’t have any, but if you have a breast plate please bring (don’t worry for this first taster session if you don’t have one!). Sticks and balls will be provided.

First Aid Course

Chrissie Mayes is arranging a First Aid course. If any Parents, members, Trainers or Instructors are interested, please let her know (chrissiemayes@btinternet.com).

So if you took the photos (or know who did), please get in touch with Fred to say whether or not you are happy for the photos to be used.
