GAHC’s data policy – GDPR

Good evening.
You are likely to have been bombarded with emails over the last few days from third parties about the way that they will hold and use your data when GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes into force on 25 May 2018.
We are finalising the Club’s GDPR/data policy and will be publishing shortly on the GAHC website. In the meantime, please rest assured that we will only be using any personal details collected for the legitimate interests of administering the club and keeping in touch on club-related matters.
We will be asking all members (and parents of junior members) to complete a new club membership form at the start of the 2018/19 season to ensure that we are legitimately holding and using your data for the purposes of administering Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club (GAHC) and Gillingham Anchorians Sports Facility Ltd (GASFL, the limited company that manages the astro facility on behalf of GAHC).
If you have any concerns, please feel free to message me or Nigel McDonald.

Junior Training Cancelled. 18th March.

Dear all,

With the pitch already covered, more snow falling and the temperature not set to rise overnight I am cancelling all junior training tomorrow morning. Next weekend is our final Sunday morning and will be the family tournament starting from around 10. Keep an eye for details.
U10s, your afternoon tournament is currently still ON but Canterbury will be looking again in the morning and making a decision around 10a.m. As soon as I know anything I will let you know.

Junior dinner & disco postponed due to snow – 17th March

I’m sorry to say that we have taken the decision to postpone this evening’s junior dinner. We haven’t taken the decision lightly, but there is still a Met Office amber weather warning from 4pm running through to tomorrow. We are in good company – as well as all our hockey games being postponed, the Gills game is off for spectator safety.
I know that everyone will be very disappointed, but I hope that you will understand that everyone’s safety is paramount.
All those party outfits won’t go to waste. We will look to reschedule (likely early to mid April).
Stay safe and warm.
