The Charity game between Bannatynes and the Arrow on the 13th June 2015 went very well. 20 or so members of the health club came and had a roll-up. They appeared to enjoy themselves although none of them have joined us. A total of £226 was raised in aid of the ‘Look Good, Feel Good’ charity which helps women with cancer. Here is a photo of our President  Alan Castle with Katie from Bannatynes.

The day was a great success, everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves even though the weather was a bit unpredictable. We raised over £620 with more to come. Bob Lewis, the arranger, asked everyone to wear something red, which most did. A few photos below show what went on.

On September 12, 2016, in the afternoon just after the Umbrella game had finished a  helicopter landed on the green. A medical emergency somewhere nearby required the services of the helicopter and our green was the only area big enough for it to land.

There was a good turnout for this annual event. The weather was good and the day was enjoyed by all. Many thanks to our Captain Bob Lewis for running the event and to Gill Razey and her helpers for the beefburgers and hot dogs.

Guess who ?

Congratulations to Mary Bidgood on reaching 90 next week.

As she had to leave early on the day, the captain said that she was going to ‘pop off now’, hopefully a slip of the tongue.
