David Hughes, Bugler.
For those at the ceremony on the terrace who would have heard David's playing of the Last Post followed by Reveille, they would all agree what a wonderful rendition it was. The bugle has a certain character to it and when played by a virtuoso brings a special meaning to these compositions. David Farthing has written a short history of the bugle that was used on the day.
Monday week ago we had a 'working bee' which attracted over 30 members, both golfers and social members and also a non member to help. This was followed by drinks and a BBQ on the terrace. Much work was completed, cleaning up along the 1st - which produced a gigantic pile of debris; around the 10th, the 8th tee, the 11th tee and many other areas on the course. Thank you to these volunteers. We plan to have another one at the end of the summer period which will be well publicised in advance and we will try and make it at a time when it doesn't conflict with other activities.
