The Ross Hayden Memorial Spoon

Ross Hayden Memorial Spoon

As a lasting tribute to Welwyn Phoenix Rifle Club member Ross Hayden who lost his brave fight to cancer nearly two years ago, the club have commissioned a memorable trophy.

As a renowned London chef, Ross had quietly carried out his business feeding the rich and famous, including some of the Royal Family. His quiet modesty and ever ready cheerfulness endeared him to many and within WPRC he has been sadly missed.

Our own club member with equally remarkable skills is James Greenway. His design and personal exquisite craftsmanship, has resulted in the amazing Ross Hayden Memorial Spoon.

It will be contested throughout this and subsequent seasons, for short range shooting at 300 yards and will provide a lasting reminder of a loyal member and good friend to many.

It will be presented to the inaugural winner, after the club EOS competitions on Sunday 8th of October 2017.
