Captain's Newsletter - 19 November 2020

Hi Ladies

I hope you are all staying safe and well.

We are now two weeks into lockdown have you found plenty of jobs to do to keep you occupied, or are you walking, relaxing or doing online exercise classes, I have to confess to have done all of those things.

have you maybe learnt a new skill or done something you have never done before? In the last lockdown I decorated the hall stairs and landing balanced on a plank for the high bits, decorating is not something I would normally do but found it quite therapeutic. This week I prepared the ground and put grass seed down then put netting over it and hope it grows, something else I have never done.

Monday 23rd November Parliament will debate "Exempt golf courses from the list of venues required to close due to Covid-19" after 257,267 people signed the England golf petition. Once the debate has happened if you signed the petition you will receive a video and the transcript, so lets keep our fingers crossed.

Thursday 3rd December we hope we will be able to go ahead with the Hattersley Cup, it will depend on what the rules are on our return, I believe Boris will announce this next week. Weather permitting this will be over 18 holes.

Thursday 10th December Christmas Greensomes as is customary dressing up is optional but there will be a prize for the best dressed pairs outfit and a prize for the best christmas jumper. Sign up for this will not open until we know the rules.

Once the new rules for returning to golf have been announced we will know whether we will be able to have our christmas mince pies and mulled wine after greensomes. Lets hope there will be good news in my next newsletter.

Stay safe
Ladies Captain
