The sell-out inaugural Gentlemen's Lunch organised by the Ladies Committee can
fairly be described as a great success.
The highlight of the event, however, was the post-lunch speech by Noj White, who
entertained the assembled with numerous tales of his career with BOAC and later
British Airways as a Concorde and Boeing 747 pilot, not all of which would be
repeatable in mixed company.
An annual charity event when, for one day, club members transform the clubhouse into a busy marketplace.
The Fayre is sponsored by 30 local companies. It attracts over 500 people who come to take part in fundraising activities, buy gifts from 35 stalls that sell a range of unique and interesting products and enjoy fabulous riverside views whilst eating and drinking.
The Ladies Committee hosted their first coffee morning in aid of Dementia UK on Friday 4th March which raised over £600 which will all go to the charity.
The Ladies Committee members busied themselves before the event making a variety of delicious cakes and biscuits and hunting for a range of raffle prizes. We were delighted to find that we have some 'star bakers' amongst us.
