Everyday Heroes We're Proud to Support: Steve Colquhoun
Behind the scenes at every sports club are people who work their magic to keep the wheels turning smoothly, allowing clubs to look great, all the while giving the members a safe, clean and workable space to play and socialise in comfort.
Steve Colquhoun is just such a man and the North Epping Sports Club
recently wrote to us to tell all about Steve and the amazing work he does for their club, as their way of Honouring him.
North Epping Sports Club Inc
would dedicate the Honour Board to Steve Colquhoun
, who is a member of our management committee, a current Over 45 registered soccer player (goalkeeper) and a former President of our club.
This year is the 20th year Steve has worked as volunteer grounds organiser for North Epping Oval. This has meant getting up early every Saturday and some Sundays in the autumn and winter months of the football season to dress the grounds, preparing the nets and spectator ropes, cleaning the dressing rooms and attending to the club house. Often Steve does this work alone. He is there whether it is cold or wet, and he is often there in the late afternoon on Saturdays to undress the grounds and put the gear away.
is very special to North Epping Rangers
. He was awarded Life Membership of the club in 2001, in recognition of more than 10 years of service to the club. He has continued to serve for 15 more years. He embodies the true spirit of volunteerism, and is a good bloke as well.
Your words made us appreciate the things we can't see, and the people who do them, all the more.
