Following a lovely day with Terri Gliddon and friends celebrating her birthday an amazing £550 has been raised for the Cornwall Air Ambulance ‘Heli Appeal’. Thank you all so much for your generosity.
A special mention must go to Wappo Westlake for not only providing us with delicious food but for entertaining us through the evening. There was much fun, laughter, dancing & singing.
At present the sum raised so far for the Ladies Captains’ Charity is £4137.79
A report in the Meeting note archive details the advice received in regard to making savings on water usage by fitting some more efficient heads.
The current heads we have in-situ are 21 years old and a lot of water resource is being wasted by the design of the head watering large areas of rough rather than all being directed to the fairway surface.
