It’s not just about the Hockey!

Congratulations to Medistap First aid, the 2019 recipients of the Bunny Wain Trophy.

This trophy is awarded by the umpires to a team who have made an outstanding contribution to the Festival and this year, it was a very easy decision. For those who were not aware, our long serving President George Robson was taken ill whilst at the Festival on Sunday.

Thanks to their expertise and quick work, George received the medical care and attention he need and, in the words of the Paramedics, the event medical team “saved his life.” We at BHF cannot thank them enough.

George is now recovering in hospital and should be home by the end of the week. He even managed to ring us this morning to remind us where the scissors were for when we were taking down the banners!

We know you will join us in wishing him a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him at #blackpoolhf 2020 for what will be his 56th festival! Get well soon George!
