The Opening of the green 2019
An excellent turnout of members saw President Peter send the first bowl of the new season. The members provided a superb buffet. Thanks to Eleanor, Jenny, Hazel and the ladies for all their hard work. Christine's bar was again busy. Mike thanks Woody and David who set the room up and sorted out the seating for the official photograph. Bernard Hill won the bottle of whisky for the nearest to the jack in Mel's "Spider."
Mike met with the Council planning Officer on Monday to discuss the plans for the extension. Hopefully there will be no problems and the development can go ahead in September.
Don and Joan Wright's Donation to the Club
We will no longer have an excuse for being late onto the green or into the Pavilion for tea, now that we have a wonderful outdoor clock, thanks to the generosity of Don and Joan. Thanks to Mel for putting up.
The Annual General Meeting 2019
A great turnout of members witnessed the installation of this years president Peter Armitage and vice president David Drew. Trevor Witts, the company accountant, gave a very encouraging financial report showing the club to be in a healthy financial state. The key message from Peter was, that to remain a healthy and successful club the support of the members is essential. The teams need to be picked from the maximum number of available members whilst the social activities will flounder without the support of members and friends.
A good turnout for the Opening of the Green on Tuesday 16th April at 6.00.pm would be appreciated. There will be a buffet and bar.
