Captains Charity Day

Captains Charity Day, played on the revised date of Thursday 14th September, was played over only nine ends when a torrential rainstorm drenched the greens and all returned to the safety of the clubhouse. Whilst the numbers in attendance was lower than usual, despite the weather, good companionship prevailed and very enjoyable home made cakes and tea or bar drinks were enjoyed by all.

The captains offered their very grateful thanks to the ladies who had made the cakes and to all who had provided raffle prizes, so many that ladies captain Sheila asked if those in attendance minded if a few were reserved for the forthcoming Presidents day.

The whole proceeding took place in the presence of a few members of the British Legion who set up a stall full of interesting objects and following a speech and presentations for top rink and bottom rink, humorously reversed by Sheila, Bob Shergold from the Legion was invited to speak on their behalf and provided the gathering with some astonishing facts about the levels of money raised nationally each year for support and welfare for ex service personnel in need of help.
