The Club would like to acknowledge the sad passing of Honorary Vice President Roy Hawes, at the age 93. Roy was involved with Wycombe Rye Ladies Hockey Club for many years through his wife Jean. In the days when all our hockey was played on grass, Roy took charge of ‘re-painting’ the balls and often picked up a whistle. He was former Chairman of the High Wycombe Branch of the Royal British Legion, and he and Jean were both stalwarts of the High Wycombe Poppy Appeal. Roy attended several Club dinners and AGMs in recent years, being proud to present the Jean Hawes Memorial Award in honour of his late wife.
Roy passed away peacefully in his sleep in May 2020, at Shelburne Lodge Care Home.
