2017 Litter Pick
2017 Litter Pick

10 members of the club went litter picking for 2 hours on Sunday 15th October along Nightingale Road, Walsworth Road, Station forecourt and Veralum Road in Hitchin.

People are disgusting - we managed to accumulate 13 bags of rubbish including a disintegrated road cone, a parasol, half a broom, an advertising banner, countless plastic and glass bottles and enough fag ends that the pavement probably contracted cancer.

Sorry that photographer was still busy clearing the top of Nightingale Road when we finished so no group photograph

Goodbye to Kevin
Goodbye to Kevin

Sadly Kevin is leaving Hitchin for pastures new.

All who have played with or against will appreciate his kindly nature and helpful advice.

We wish him well and hope he might visit the club occasionally.
