Well done lads-its not just working on the green, all part of the Grounds Team- Its the volunteers that makes this club.
Just a note to say a big thank you to everyone who supported the Scott Elvis night last Saturday. It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves.
I am extremely pleased to tell you that we have raised a total of £500 that will be donated to The Scotts Project Trust. This will be very much appreciated by this amazing local charity.
Also, another big thank you to Dave and Cath as always for looking after the bar.

BRYAN FALLOON DAY
Bryan Falloon Competition Saturday 17th September 2022
Although held later than usual in the season, the competition was held in bright sunshine, but at times a chilly breeze hit the scene. Again the day was well supported, thanks to Shirley’s hard work, supported by Lorraine, Dave and Ken. The runner-up for the Plate was Joan Campbell and the winner was Steve Medhurst. The Trophy runner-up was Brian Chalklin and this year’s winner was Andy Holman. The consensus overall was that this is a good time to hold the Bryan Falloon Competition, before the green is finally put to bed.
