We have some great news from the Development Committee – the planning application for the new Astroturf @ Eggars has been submitted!
You can find details here: https://goo.gl/uah881
Please can all members view the application and submit positive comments supporting the application? This is important as it demonstrates community support for the pitch.
Whilst on the subject of the new astroturf, we are into the final stage of our ‘Push for a Pitch’ campaign. Rather than ongoing small events to generate funds, we are proposing to hold another party at Eggars in November so please save the date – 18th November 7pm to midnight. More details to follow but we are hoping to replicate and improve on the event we held last year!
Finally, we have been investigating other ways of generating funds without actually asking for people to donate. Impossible? Turns out it isn’t! We have set ourselves up as a cause on the Easy Fundraising site. By simply registering, any online shopping you do will result in a donation to Alton Hockey Club.
As an example, Gosport HC have been using this for about three months and in that time, over 51 people have registered and has resulted in over £600 of donations!
Please take the time to register at the following site, it takes under a minute and it costs you nothing, but will help the club!
More details on the 'Final Push for a Pitch' party to come soon!
