January 13. – The club held their annual lunch “meet and greet” with the incoming captains for 2013. As always on these occasions the outgoing captains, Jean Harvey and Dave Richards, announced the result of their 2012 charity. All those 50p fines for straying into their designated bunkers came to a total of £1,359.35, which will go towards The Seve Ballesteros Foundation, in aid of brain cancer. Muriel Willis received the cheque on behalf of the foundation.

The incoming captains, Barbara Jameson and Howard Falshaw paid a debt of gratitude to their outgoing counterparts before announcing their 2013 charity, Herriot Hospice Home Care. All those straying shots making their way into the, now, four bunkers around the third green will form the basis for what the captains hope will match at least last year’s charity figure.

Ladies Winter Stableford results (Jan 10): 1st Judith Hogan 35pts, 2nd Val Davis, 34pts (b9) and 3rd Brenda Loveday, also with 34pts.
