Jack Gaskell

30 December 2008 at 00:00

It is with much sadness that I write to inform everybody of the passing of Jack Gaskell, aged 93 and for many years our Club President. A man of great passion for all of the sports he enjoyed, Jack took such pleasure in his involvement with Stroud Hockey Club and still came to watch matches into his 90s. His keen eye for the game will be sorely missed but his legacy of fair play tempered by an unstinting desire for success, will live on within Stroud Hockey Club. He would be proud to see the progress made with the youngsters and the promotion of the Men's 1st XI at the end of last season. Our thoughts are also with his widow, Jean, who has also been a keen supporter of our club.

Christmas ten-pin bowling

22 December 2008 at 00:00

As a final get together before Christmas, Stroud Hockey Club are going ten-pin bowling at Stroud Bowl above the cinema on Christmas Eve-Eve - Tuesday 23rd December 2008.

It's all fairly informal - just turn up if you feel like joining in.

Bowling starts at 5:30pm (in order to take advantage of the cheap bowling prices) followed by futher drinks in Stroud's various drinking establishments and almost certainly topped off with a visit to Stroud's finest - the Rajdout - for those feeling a bit peckish at the end of the evening.

Hope to see you there. If not, Merry Christmas...
