Captain's Newsletter - 14 May 2016

Sunday 8th May was an amazingly successful day for our Bridge Walkers. They have raised over £1000. Just brilliant!

“We had the perfect day for walking the bridges of London. I've seen things I've never seen before because I have not been sightseeing in London since I was a teenager!! We arrived at Battersea just before 10.30 then set off, Megan with map in hand - we followed! The weather was great, the company brilliant and we all really enjoyed the walk. We had three experienced London Bridge walkers with us who seemed to know where they were going!! We stopped at the London Eye for coffee and sandwich and sat in the sun for half an hour. We passed so many iconic buildings - Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London, the London Eye & The Shard to name but a few. What a great way to see so much!! “ -  Rogie Taylor

Our Scratch Team are enjoying an unbeaten run with yet another win. This time we played at home against Aldwickbury Park. Congratulations to Sarah and her team – Marica, Liz, Emma Wood - who made her debut and earned her Scratch Cap and to Pat Ward, who scored 3 birdies in her winning match. Great result!

Sunday 8th May, Ken Bird Trophy – played by all four sections at Chesfield Downs. Everyone enjoyed the day, with a lot of camaraderie out there. A great result for the ladies team to beat the seniors and men’s section to come in 2nd place only to the Junior Team. Well done to Julie Price, Jackie Reid, Sue Brady, Patti Vincent, Roz Mackenzie and Lin Goodey
