Moving Forward - Together

My name is Peter Hall (Ratty to my friends), I have been a  member and player at Letchworth Corner Sports Club for nearly 50 years. Some of my fondest memories have been associated with our wonderful Family Club.

The club is home to Letchworth Hockey Club, Letchworth Cricket Club , Whitethorn Bowls Club and Hitchin & Letchworth Weightlifting Club.

The Coronavirus Pandemic has hit our club hard, during 2020. Despite efforts running our social area as a takeaway service and a socially distanced bar, our income has been affected this season. Help is required from our club members, many friends of our club and from the wider North Herts community. Your help in pledging funds via this fundraiser will be greatly appreciated.

Despite its playing successes the club has become a little worn at the edges. With the current Covid 19 crisis, it has become even more urgent that projects are put in place to maintain and upgrade our Facilities. The club is seeing an ongoing shortfall in the income raised from its bar areas.

Our reserve funds are much reduced as we struggle to maintain our club activities.

By pledging your support we can Move Forward together, ensuring future generations can enjoy sport and obtain their own great memories at Whitethorn Lane.

Our Clubhouse Facilities - Refurbishment and Upgrade

In the short term our clubhouse needs to be made safe to use in a socially distanced environment under the government guidelines. 

Our New Upgraded Lower Bar Function Room

1604052475_goodbarsnip.jpg

With it's new purpose built dance floor area and adjacent kitchen area.  Opening out with french windows to our extensive grounds. Creating a multi faceted function room for our club, which is available to hire.

With the latest government announcement even the potential income raised from this social area, has again ceased.

Many of our other areas need some TLC. So please support generously.

Upgrade the outside areas. 

We need to urgently upgrade our facilities. Please help us.

Hockey Club Improvements


Hockey Coaching, Equipment and Playing Surface

To move forward as a hockey club we need to continue to offer first class coaching, a first rate playing surface and good equipment. These come at a considerable cost to the club. Estimated at £10K + per annum

Consider support for our just hockey reward and this will contribute directly to this growing hockey expense. For insurance reasons juniors must be a member of our club for this reward. The reward is open to anyone and associate membership can be given for free if your child wishes to join in on the summer coaching day, at our great club

Company Support for our Local Sports Club

Corporate Funding
