In addition to the initial grant provided by Bendigo, the bank  has advised that they are prepared to continue this relationship with the Drouids Hockey club into the future.West gippsland hockey club

There will be a change of Logo as well as a change of the style of uniform. It was felt by the committee that the change of uniform top would make the club more attractive to young players considering joining the club in addition to the tops being of of a better cut for women rather than the unisex fit.
