First Charity Golf Day

Well on the morning of the charity golf day we can honestly say that from the moment we saw the weather we did not expect forty six out of forty eight players to show up, the gods could not have been so cruel to us. The day before the weather was fantastic and a great day for golf, that’s Great Britain for you.

Anyway despite the horrific weather there where smiles and laughter coming from all of you, as the first groups got all the stuff together and made their way to their tees there seemed to be a little break in the rain but that hope disappeared as the rain just kept going and going, after forty five minutes both tees were clear and all forty six players was on the course , Steve and Rachael went out in a buggy to take photos.
Not only did forty six of you show up and go out , forty six of you stayed out till the very end and with that effort you managed to raise a fantastic £1090.00.
