Company Golf Day

Thursday 23rd June 2022

Tandridge Golf Club

PM Derek Harris kindly organised the annual Company Golf Day for the Charles Rich Cup. Derek has been running this for the past 20 years at Tandridge and his name is on the cup as winner 2005.

It was a glorious day, and apart from a slight mid-morning drizzle 6 members and 17 guests played golf on a beautifully manicured golf course with views far into the South Downs.

PM Derek donned all players with maroon golf shirts sporting the Company C of A.

Many more, including the IPM Jerry Merton, Clerk, Hon Chaplain and Treasurer joined for the spectacular Tandridge lunch, drinks, cigars – and prize giving.

It was most fitting that PM Nigel Rich won the Charles Rich Cup (which Nigel donated in 2002 in honour of his father, a founding member of our modern Co).

In recognition of the many years of service PM Derek (ably supported and encouraged by his wife Sheila) has given to running this annual, a gift was presented by the Company – a teak garden chair and cushion with the C of A!

Thank you to Derek and Sheila from us all – I have been asked to take over from Derek – it will be a hard act to follow and perhaps Derek can umpire from his chair?
