Commitment to Inclusivity


Old Loughtonians Hockey Club is committed to providing a safe and welcoming home for anyone wishing to enjoy hockey irrespective of age, background, ability or diversity.

Safeguarding and inclusivity are at the core of our ethos.

The Club's values are enshrined in its constiution and policies

and reflect the values of England Hockey and best practice in sport.

To ensure that our commitment is clear and approachable we have a dedicated group of volunteers who provide guidance and support to the Club on equality, diversity, inclusivity and belonging.

The current members of the group which reports to the management committee are

Simon Beckley (chairman),  Stuart Hurwitz, Pranitha Naidu, Bob Narwal, Matt Smylie and Karen Sticher.

If at any stage you have any concerns which you would like to raise which relate specifically to equality, diversity, inclusivity and belonging as opposed to welfare and safeguarding please contact any member of the group at and your concern will be addressed in confidence. All welfare and safeguarding issues should be raised with Cindy Falconer,  the club Welfare and Safeguarding Officer.

Sponsorship We are very fortunate to benefit from the generous support of Higgins Group Plc. Higgins Group Plc is one of the largest family-owned construction companies in South East England. It was formed as the parent company of the Higgins Group of Companies in 1989. The Higgins Group moved to their prestigious new offices at One, Langston Road in May 2005. The development and success of the club would not have been possible without the long term and continuing commitment of the company to our club as its principal sponsor.

Could you sponsor or support Old Loughtonians Hockey Club?

It is important that the club continues to attract additional support and sponsorship. We welcome all levels of support (including another major sponsor alongside the Higgins Group) and potential bespoke packages are available to interested parties. Support and sponsorship can range from pitchside boards (on either of our pitches) to individual team deals. We welcome local sponsors in particular as well as national and international sponsors especially those with an interest in hockey.

Members introducing sponsors to the club (or sponsoring players or the club themselves) will benefit from free annual membership themselves. Please contact our chairman ( or the club office ( for more information or with any proposal.
