As ever, the members proved they have warm hearts by generously generating £5088 for our local charity “The Rosemary Appeal”. My thanks to all the Hole sponsors, the Ladies who baked the delicious cakes, the contributors to the Bottle Raffle and to all those who donated prizes for the auction. Also Max Nichols for "beat the pro" Lastly, a big thank you to the members who joined in all the activities with such enthusiasm and proved, yet again, what a supportive and super club we are members of.
