We were deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Pete Bruce last week – a much loved and valued member of our Havering Active sport coaching team.

Pete dedicated much of his time and energy towards the development of tennis within the borough and was extremely passionate in doing so. He successfully coached the Havering London Youth Games tennis team for many seasons and regularly assisted with the delivery of our Para Sport programme. He also helped found the Havering Sports Council in 1967 and served as its President.

Throughout the years Pete picked up an array of awards for his lifetime of service to coaching. He has left behind an incredible legacy – both on and off the court – that will carry on for years to come. He was always quick to tell a joke and was a truly genuine, kind and fun guy to be around.

Our thoughts are with his family during this extremely difficult time.

Pete, thank you for all that you have done for us. You will be missed and you will never be forgotten.

Pete Bruce

The Havering Sports Development Team would like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and healthy Christmas. We know that 2020 has been extremely challenging for many, so we want to thank you for all your support throughout this difficult period.
Typically our Christmas card would have looked a little different, but given the circumstances, we have decided to get creative. We hope this brings you a smile nonetheless.
Our hope for 2021 is that we are able to continue our partnership working to further develop, promote and offer a range of sport and exercise opportunities for the people of Havering.
Take care and stay safe everyone!
