Pages Park pavilion re-furbishment
The major work has now been completed with just a few tasks to complete and expected to be 'open for business' in January 2020. For our club the changes have meant: -
1. We have our own toilets (two) within our clubhouse.
2. We now have a door from our previous clubroom leading to another room which has a sink unit, tea / coffee making facilities and seating.
3. The steps we previously had leading up from the lawn to the clubhouse have been replaced by a ramp to allow disabled / wheelchair access to our clubhouse.
4. The ramp has been extended beyong the clubhouse entrance giving us a raised ares for tables & chairs.
On Friday 29th November our club had our 2019 AGM at Northall village hall. It was well attended with 28 members present. At the AGM the trophies won during the 2019 season were presented by Irene Davis who was a founder member of our club and is still playing (occasionally) at the age of 95.
Delow are some photos taken at the presentation of the trophies.
New Club Chairman
At our recent AGM, Malcolm Kirby stood down as Club Chairman and our new Chairman is Ross Bagni.
Ross has sent a Christmas Message to all our members: -
Firstly may it wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Since the AGM I have had a meeting with Ian Haynes, of Leighton Linslade Town Council. He is offering, subject to the Council's approval, to level and resurface lawns 1 & 2, with us making a contribution. The amount will have to be decided but should be well within our budgets.
This will probably take place over two years so we always have at a least two lawns available at all times. The idea will be put forward at a meeting in early March. I will keep you informed how we get on.
The new clubhouse is now finished and as those of you who were at the AGM, will know, it's all looking very smart. We will hopefully get the keys this week.
I am booking the Leighton Buzzard Golf club for our annual dinner. The date is Friday 13th March. So please make a note in your diary. Friends and spouses/ partners are very welcome.
It is my intention to send regular updates when we have something worthwhile to tell you. If any of you have any questions then please contact me either by phone 01525 221412/ 07974 715222 or email straight back!
See you soon
Again have a great time at Christmas
