Thursday – Ladies' Captain's Charity Day
A truly excellent day. Lots of fun and enjoyment for all our players. The weather was dry (thank goodness for the “sun dance” I did all week). The Halfway House was excellent (“the best anywhere” was the comment!). The Hampers and Silver Anniversary Draw prizes were outstanding. And over £3000 raised for the Garden House Hospice, Letchworth. Thank you to everyone who helped to make it such a successful day.
