May the Forth be With You!
You’ve guessed it, it's my Birthday today, and if I had a pound for every time, I have heard this saying, I would be a very rich man.
I am being taken to Battersea Power Station, a few years ago, you wouldn’t be telling anyone this, but I can assure you (fingers crossed) that it is now a very trendy place to visit, also my wife is taking on the attraction Lift 109, which is a glass lift going up one of the chimney stacks, total height 109 meters, Full knowing I have a fear of heights and lifts, I thought this was a (nice) present, wish me luck.
On bank holiday Monday we held Charity Day, fortunately the weather was very kind to us, we had a good turnout of 17 teams.
Danny was on the 13th with beat the Pro, and I can say that he did a fantastic job, handing me £330.00, well done Danny.
My wife Galina & her good friend Nora, looked after everyone with refreshments and homemade cakes, we also had North London Hospice attend with a stand at the hut, Alycia & Shaun were fantastic and very informative, thank you.

After golf we moved in to the club house for a small speech by myself, Alycia & Shaun, followed by the raffle, many thanks to Giovanni, Crews Hill, Northwood, Sudbury & Fulwell for your vouchers, this generated £565.00, also we auctioned off a Spurs signed flag of which Ross was the worthy winner donating £160.00, total without money from club is £1055.00, there are a few outstanding payments, and when I have the final figure I will update you all.
We followed this by a fantastic meal cooked by our Chef Roy.
Many thanks to everyone who took part, a special thankyou to Stewart, Michelle, Debbie & her Team & Danny our Pro.
