Chairman's Report, 2018
The time to produce the Annual Report comes round far too quickly, however I hope I have covered everything.
As always I will begin with the green and thank the GREEN TEAM under the watchful eye of Geoff for all the hard work that has been done on the green, banks, ditches etc. I think the green and surroundings are a credit to the club and many compliments have been passed.
I mentioned in last year's report changing the direction on a regular basis, this seems to have worked out pretty well and I'm sure the green has benefited from this.
Thanks go to Ken Eillis who has obtained a number of sponsorships for the club (as illustrated on the advertising boards) this is after securing a £500 grant from his old company Taylor Wimpey to help with the cost of the mower and sprayer purchased at the end of last season.
Positions in all three leagues have improved. Difficulties making teams remains an issue but we managed to fulfil all fixtures, with only one match having to be rearranged because of bad weather.
We welcomed 3 new members, Dennis and Sue Ayling and Trevor Downey. Hopefully they have enjoyed the season and are already looking forward to 2019.
Sadly Anne, our Vice Chairman is no longer with us. She will be greatly missed as she was very involved with all aspects of the club. We shall also miss past member Jean Bates, secretary of the club for 13 years.
We had 2 county fixtures this season and we have to decide if to carry on offering our green. This will be discussed at the annual meeting in November.
Club competitions went well with new names appearing on the trophies. Finals day was well attended and a delicious meal was served to round off the day.
The season has been particularly busy for the Ladies section with 2 county fixtures, as already mentioned, hosting the Topham Trophy and the Marshall Salver. These matches have been helpful in swelling club funds. Ladies are also the captains of all the leagues and team selectors. Phyllis is our secretary and works unstintingly for the club.
Thank you all for you continued support. I hope you winter well and return with fighting spirit in 2019.
