Company Golf Day

Monday 15th June 2015

Another beautiful summer's day for the Company's golf day hosted by Past Master Derek Harris at Tandridge. My pleasant task was to present the prizes. I was not obliged to play golf thank goodness. My golfing skills are non-existent, a fact discovered very early in my life when I realised I had absolutely no talent for any games involving a ball. The Mistress and I arrived just before lunch at the beautiful Tandridge Golf Club which is definitely straight out of PG Wodehouse, in a classic Surrey setting of rolling countryside. All that was missing was the Oldest Member sitting in a corner of the bar. The players drifted in after a challenging morning's golf and we sat down to a really splendid lunch for which the Golf Day is becoming renowned. The extremely generous prizes, mainly beautifully wrapped bottles of wine and fizz in presentation baskets, were all organised and prepared by PM Harris helped no doubt by his wife Sheila. First prize went to recently joined Liveryman Paul Taberer who managed the highest (or is it the lowest?) score. A thoroughly enjoyable day and a real pleasure to be there. Many thanks to Derek for such splendid organisation and all his hard work.
