Our President Brenda Clift was dismayed to see the pouring rain when she looked out of her window on the morning of her President’s Day at Crowborough Beacon GC. She need not have worried because by the time of the first tee the skies had cleared and all the participants had arrived safely despite the weather and the petrol shortage. The wet weather had left its mark on the course though and made it play tough and very long which was reflected in the scores. The day went smoothly with Brenda ably assisted by the Crowborough Ladies’ Captain, Lindsay Young and other helpers. The raffle in aid of Breast Cancer Care raised £245. The day concluded with a delicious running buffet and prizegiving. Brenda had hand decorated the prize envelopes herself which drew many compliments.

There were Nearest the Pin prizes for  Roseanne Rees, Sylvia Huggair, Lindsay Smith and Janie Hartle.
