Katie DoddKatie Dodd – Chair and England Hockey nominated Trustee

Katie Dodd is a graduate of both Edinburgh and London Universities, gaining a doctorate in Plant Pathology in 1975. She worked for the Metropolitan Police Service for 27 years, taking early retirement in 2007 and held a variety of senior management posts and project leads in the strategy, IT and organisational change areas of the Service.

In the world of hockey, Katie gained honours representing England in the late seventies and early eighties in both indoor and outdoor forms of the game where she captained the Indoor team to a bronze medal in the European Indoor Championships. She was also heavily involved in club, county, regional and national administration and coaching. More recently she served for many years as a Non-Executive Director on the Board of England Hockey and has volunteered at many hockey events including the 2012 Olympics. Katie is one of THM’s founder Trustees and has chaired the Board of Trustees since 2011.


 Mike SmithMike Smith – Curator and Trustee

Mike Smith is a 'Baby Boomer' who learned his hockey from the cradle thanks to his hockey enthusiast father who learned his hockey at school in India. He played his first club match at the age of 12 and continued for over fifty years, also taking on administrative roles at club, county and national levels, taking in outdoor, indoor, umpiring and coaching, becoming one of the first Hockey Assocation (HA) coaches in the early 1970s.

In founding specialist hockey company Mercian in 1974, Mike's involvement in hockey became even greater. Shortly after, by marrying hockey player Judy and producing two hockey-playing sons, a total hockey family was created. The birth of Mercian enabled the collection of hockey material of all kinds – maybe the start of The Hockey Museum (THM)?

Involvement in the London World Cup of 1986 saw the first display of hockey memorabilia and planted the seeds of what was to come. In June 1992, with the impending National Hockey Stadium at Milton Keynes, Mike and David Wareham were asked by Phil Appleyard, the then HA President, to become joint honorary curators of The Hockey Museum based at the new stadium. A few ‘ups and downs’ ensued, but in 2011, with Mike retired from Mercian, an offer of a home from Woking Borough Council saw the re-birth of the dream of a dedicated museum for hockey and Mike became one of THM's founder Trustees. The rest, as they say, is history, but that is what THM is all about.


David WarehamDavid Wareham – Trustee

David Wareham was born in Woking and has lived in the local area all his life. A Chartered Surveyor, he was, for more than 30 years, the Senior Partner of a local firm, Pearce and Company.

With Mike Smith, he is joint founder Curator of The Hockey Museum having been appointed by Phil Appleyard in June 1992, after serving as Philatelic Co-ordinator for the Men’s 1986 World Cup, held in London. David is also a Trustee of The Hockey Youth Trust, which helps schools and clubs at grass roots levels throughout England, as well as four other local Charities. He still regularly umpires hockey for Woking Vets in the Wessex Masters ‘Supervets’ League.


Dil BahraDil Bahra Trustee

Dil Bahra was born and educated in Kenya where he took up hockey at a very early age. He emigrated to the UK in 1967 and joined the British Army where he played for his units and the Army team in Cyprus. He later joined the Metropolitan Police Service in 1975 and continued with his passion for hockey. He was a player, coach, Team Manager, and Vice Chairman of the Club. In 1982 he was instrumental in forming the British Police Hockey Team and was the Team Manager/Coach for 16 years.

It was whilst he was the Honorary Secretary of the Hockey Writers’ Club that he took an active role in the Hockey Archives Steering Group and was a founder Trustee of the Museum, responsible for setting up the Museum’s first website and the Library.

Gift Aid

The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by individuals who pay UK tax. Gift Aid donations are regarded as having basic rate tax deducted by the donor. The Hockey Museum take your donation, which is money you've already paid tax on, and reclaim the basic rate tax from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on its 'gross' equivalent' – the amount before basic rate tax was deducted. If you give £10 using Gift Aid, it’s worth £12.50 to THM.

pdfShould you wish, you have the option to set up regular donations to The Hockey Museum or to become a Friend of The Hockey Museum by standing order. To do this you need to contact your bank, provide them with THM’s bank account details (below) and instruct them to set up a standing order between your account and ours for the amount you wish to donate. You can do this by phone, in branch or online. Alternatively, you can complete the Standing Order Form (downloadable by clicking the first PDF icon) and send it to your bank.

Please note: If the total annual sum you donate by standing order is equal to the minimum donation for one of the Friend levels, we will assign you that status unless you instruct us otherwise.pdf

With your standing order set up, we ask that you send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. informing us of your standing order, its amount and your name and address.

How Will Your Support Make A Difference?

From humble beginnings in 2012, we are are on the verge of obtaining formal museum Accreditation from the Arts Council this year. In 2020 THM is planning to move into much larger premises (owned by Woking Borough Council and leased to us) but we need your support to turn this wonderful opportunity into a world-class museum for hockey.

We have ambitious plans but without your support we cannot deliver these. Potential future projects include:

  • The design and delivery of a superb new exhibition space;
  • The design and delivery of a new library and reading room;
  • The continued preservation and conservation of the Museum’s collections;
  • The realisation of a curriculum-focused education programme for school children;
  • The design and delivery of a dedicated education space for school groups and hockey clubs;
  • Increased accessibility to the Museum’s collections through digitisation projects;
  • The continuation of oral history interviews with members of the hockey family across all levels of the sport;
  • Continued research into the history of hockey; and
  • The continued employment of professional staff for the Museum.

 

We need your help to make all this happen. 

Please support us on this exciting journey.

Support The Hockey Museum from as little as £30 per annum

Contribute to the creation of a world-class museum for hockey and help us to give hockey's history a future

 

Welcome to The Hockey Museum’s (THM) new Friends fundraising initiative.

circles 4 low resInspired by the togetherness of the 'Hockey Family', the Friends of The Hockey Museum has been conceived to bring together hockey and/or heritage enthusiasts whose support will:

  1. Enable us to deliver a world-class museum and repository for hockey’s heritage
  2. Ensure the longevity of our great project.

Although our current premises at 13 High Street, Woking are an improvement on previous locations, we plan to move to much better new premises in 2020, also in Woking. A wonderful opportunity but one which brings with it long-term, annual financial commitments. We are supported financially by both England Hockey and by the International Hockey Federation but we need to generate additional, reliable annual income streams to realise our ambitions. A large number of annual donations from our Friends will provide such a reliable income stream. Please help us to give hockey’s history a future.

 

How Will Your Support Make A Difference?

From humble beginnings in 2012, we are on the verge of obtaining formal museum Accreditation from the Arts Council this year. In 2020 THM is planning to move into much larger premises but we need your support to turn this wonderful opportunity into a world-class museum for hockey.

We need your support to make all this happen and doing so has never been easier.

You can support The Hockey Museum from as little as £30 per annum – only £2.50 per month!

How To Become A Friend Of The Hockey Museum

We would prefer our Friends to sign up through the online portal PaySubsOnline (which uses the Direct Debit agent GoCardless or PayPal) rather than donating by standing order. Doing so will significantly reduce the administration required to effectively manage subscriptions. THM is a largely volunteer-run, charitable organisation and reducing administration really will make a big difference. That being said, if you are uncomfortable with making online payments we would still be delighted to have you become a Friend by setting up a standing order direct to THM’s bank account.

At the start of 2016, The Hockey Museum launched an exciting UK-wide competition for primary schools, with the winning design being displayed at the 2016 Champions Trophy in London and at The Hockey Museum.

The competition, supported by The National Hockey Foundation, invited children to design their own piece of two-dimensional artwork about the sport of hockey, using South American influences.

A bumper batch of entries was received! Judges Helen Richardson-Walsh (Great Britain and England Hockey player), George Pinner (Great Britain and England Hockey Goalkeeper) and Ben Rea (National Hockey Foundation) had an enjoyable but challenging role in selecting the winning entries.

Ten-year-old Alice Hannan from The Holy Family Catholic Primary School in Surrey designed the winning entry superimposing the flag of Brazil over a hockey pitch with the addition of a hockey stick pattern.

Twenty-one other winners were named as Highly Commended entries and win a set of art materials for their own use and some art vouchers for their schools.

"The standard of entries was fantastic with a variety of techniques and it was extremely hard to pick one overall winner" says Helen Richardson-Walsh. "I loved how the winning entry incorporated a hockey pitch into the Brazilian flag with the subtle use of hockey sticks adding texture to the overall feel."

All of the winning entries can be seen here.

The Winning entry was designed by:
Alice Hannan, 10, The Holy Family Catholic Primary School, Addlestone, Surrey.

The Highly Commended entries were designed by (in age order):
Alfie, 5, Foxhills Infant School, Southampton, Hampshire.
Amelia, 5, Foxhills Infant School, Southampton, Hampshire.
Finn, 5, Foxhills Infant School, Southampton, Hampshire.
Ruby, 7, Castlehills Primary School, Doncaster, South Yorkshire

Elisha, 10, The Brent Primary School, Dartford, Kent
Jessica, 9, Hook Junior School, Hook, Hampshire
Saira, 9, Grove Primary School, Romford, Essex
Cherry, 10, Kings Heath Primary School, Birmingham
Ella, 10, Yalding St Peter and St Paul Primary School, Yalding, Kent
Ellie, 10, The Brent Primary School, Dartford, Kent

Eloise, 11, The Holy Family Catholic Primary School, Addlestone, Surrey.
Georgia, 11, Yalding St Peter and St Paul Primary School, Yalding, Kent
Katie-Lee, 11, Castlehills Primary School, Doncaster, South Yorkshire

"The competition was a huge success and a great platform from which to begin our education programme" says Jon Rye, volunteer Education Officer at The Hockey Museum. "All of the Trustees and volunteers at The Hockey Museum have been impressed by the calibre of artwork received, and will enjoy promoting the competition winners during our Champions Trophy exhibition."

"The National Hockey Foundation has a particular interest in encouraging Junior Hockey and is pleased to be able to sponsor this project linking Art and Sport with the Rio 2016 Olympic Games" says Ben Rea, Trustee of The National Hockey Foundation. "The Foundation is full of admiration for both the high standard of the work and the large number of entries."
