GHC President Maggs Kyte is here with former President Mel Burgess (standing, left) and former President Alex Laver (seated), who celebrated her 100th birthday this week:


Alex started playing for Merrow Ladies when she was still at school.

She moved to Guildford HC when the two clubs joined during the war.

She was a corporal in the WWAF during the war and was an aircraft fitter.

Alex has travelled the world including white water rafting on the Zambezi when she was in her 70s!

And yes, here is the famous Happy 100th Birthday letter from the Queen:
