We held our “Change-over” meeting at the beginning of July and installed our new President Bob Lord.
Our annual Golf Day was held at New Mills Golf Club and was thoroughly enjoyed by 12 teams. The Rose Bowl was won by the team from Bramhall Park Golf Club. This year the charity we supported was Kinder Mountain Rescue Team and our President Bob presented the cheque for £1000.00 to their representative. Our grateful thanks to the Steward and Stewardess and the Golf Pro for all their help in making the day a success. We are grateful to all the teams and club members who support us each year at this event.
