Bronze medal-winning Olympians will be the star attraction at Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead Hockey Club’s Get Back to Hockey event.

Team GB hockey players Laura Bartlett and Emily Maguire will attend the club’s season curtain-raiser, and an open invitation has been extended to members of the public.

Everyone who attends will get the chance to meet and have their photo taken with the GB stars, as well as picking up a stick and taking to the pitch for various challenges and friendly matches.

There will also be free goodie bags up for grabs, and the event is open to all the family, from six years of age upwards.

The event will take place at RAF Halton, on Chestnut Avenue, Halton, from 11am to 1pm on Sunday, September 2 and further information can be found at www.berkohockeyclub.com
