COMMUNITY RECOGNITION STATEMENT - Honey Wilcher, NSW Hockey Volunteer of the Year

Congratulations and Gratitude to Honey Wilcher, who was recently awarded the NSW Hockey Community Volunteer of the Year award. Honey has dedicated many years of service to Hockey in Maitland, and in her many years in the game has proudly represented her club and her state. While she is no-longer tearing down the wing, she still dons her Rebels jersey each season and steps out onto the field with great enthusiasm.

Her commitment to community support deserves the utmost respect and admiration; community sports clubs survive and thrive in this country due to the hard work of people like Honey. In her time at Maitland Hockey, she has served as President, Secretary, and Treasurer – in her own words a "general dog's body". I thank her for her many years of loyal service, not just to hockey, but to the wider Maitland Community.
