Sports Day 2021

To all HASSRA members in London and the South East

I am letting you know at this early juncture that in consultation with our London colleagues, we have taken the decision to cancel this year’s Sports Day. With the forlorn hope of staging such an event in June, we think it is better to act now rather than delay what we see as an inevitable decision. It is another major disap­po­in­tment but one beyond our control. Let’s just hope that in 2022 we can get the show back on the road.

And in case you haven’t heard, the July Festival has already been withdrawn by Central HASSRA for the same reason. A decision on whether the September Festival can go ahead will be taken later in the year when, hopefully, we are in a much better position.

Paul Wyatt

Chairman, HASSRA SE on behalf of London and SE HASSRA.

Applications for the September 2021 festival have now closed, but if you would like to be considered for next year or require any information please email us directly at: HASSRA.LONDON@DWP.GOV.UK

HASSRA London Golf Society National Winners!

Congra­tula­tions to our Golf Society on being  given the National Best Single Activity Club Award for 2019, announced in May 2020.

This is a real achievement as they were up against some strong submissions from other Regions, and the comments below from the Awards Committee reflect their efforts.

The Awards Committee was impressed by your ongoing commitment to recruit new members and diversify your membership, and to encourage more women golfers in particular.  Your members enjoy a full and interesting calendar of events, providing oppor­tuni­ties to play at a variety of venues and in matches against other societies. Effective commu­nica­tion with your members and charity fundraising also mark you out as very worthy winners of this year’s award.

Well done to all involved with this long standing and successful Activity Club.
