The committee has taken the extremely difficult decision to cancel the charity day this year, obviously with Covid and the possibility of further restrictions we would not be able to host the event in such a way that would do it justice. We would have been restricted both on numbers, food and drink stations on the course and also have to run a different auction and also have the prospect of further lock downs the event was not viable.
We will of course be looking at next years Charity day being the biggest and best ever, hopefully celebrating the end of lock downs and everything getting back to normal.
Please everyone stay safe and well and we look forward to seeing you all in the new year and hopefully at all or some of our new fixtures !!!
The Society would like to thank everybody concerned with organising and also attending the Charity day on the 6th December 2019. We have raised in excess of £16,500 on the day which is a massive amount of money that will go a long way to help support some fantastic local and well deserving charities. Thanks again to everyone who donated prizes and auction lots, also anyone who bought raffle tickets and indeed auction items and the fantastic ladies who looked after us all so well at the various drinks stations around the course. And a massive thank you to everyone who attends year in year out regardless of the weather that make this such a fantastic event.
All the best for 2020
Mark Thomas Captain 2019/20
