Our summer festival was a great success and was attended by almost two hundred members, families and friends, half of whom took part in the walk. Steve Farnsworth and his band got feet tapping and hands clapping, and our own answer to The Supremes – The Swingettes – really got the party going. A big thank you to those members who worked so hard to make the event successful. The bar, BBQ, marquees, and entertainment gave the event a professional feel and the event raised £2,168 towards the Balcony Fund.. A great day for all!
This was the first year that Whalley Golf Club has opened this competition to past Lady Captains and it proved to be an enormous success.

Thanks go to Dr Herbie Sloan for his organisation and to all those officers of the club who returned to play and enjoy a sumptuous dinner prior to the presentation.
