Hannah, the daughter of Chris, became the first young person from Great Melton to achieve 100 hours of volunteering under the ECB VCricket Award Scheme and, in 2014 won the Norfolk OSCA ,and a trip to Lords, as ‘Young Volunteer of the Year’. She joined the club in 2012 and assisted her dad in coaching and helping with the junior girls but in Spring 2013 Hannah passed her ECB Level 1 Coaching Course and has been instrumental in building up interest and enthusiasm among our cricket-playing girls. She sits on the Women & Girls & the Junior Committees and has managed of the U13 Girls’ Team that won the Lady Taverners’ Softball Tournament in 2012 and competed with the boys in the SNCL in 2015-16. She also played in the Great Melton Women’s Team that won the NCB Indoor League in 2014. Hannah, who has represented Norfolk Ladies, has kept wicket for the Women for the last five seasons, made her senior debut in the C Team in 2013 and has played several times since. A former Wymondham High School and Norwich City College student she is qualified in sports massage and treatment of injuries which is a useful skill to have at a cricket club. Hannah is wholly involved in the club having taken on tasks like re-stocking the First Aid kits and raising the profile of Great Melton through social media so her voluntary hours now amount to around 300 – and they’re just the hours we’ve actually recorded!
