Angela Turkington -
For Angela getting involved in hockey in 2006 was an extension of being part of living in the small rural community of the Rangitikei, it was a good way to meet people and be part of the sport her boys play.
She lives in Marton where John and her have a Forestry Business. They are very proud sponsors of hockey from Community level through to Secondary Schools, Club, Central and Black Sticks. Our focus has always been trying to promote sport as we see the benefits of young people playing a team sport and this lead us to start up a Hockey Academy in 2018 for a group of students to attend Feilding High School and play in their well supported Hockey development programme.
She enjoys organising fundraising events helping to bring people together and raise the profile of hockey in the area.

She is passionate about the role sport can play in youth development in our community. After a long period in the textile industry Sarah has served on the board of School and community foundations.
