A celebration of Rabbie Burns at the Club
On Saturday 24th January 95 people enjoyed a celebration of Rabbie Burns at the Club. For me as a Burn’s Night virgin, it was a very memorable event. Right from the start of the proceedings with Ian Davidson piping in the Haggis, to the very end with a “reply from the Lassies” from Gill Edwards and the subsequent dancing everyone agreed it was a great night out.
Ian Davidson gave the “Address to the Haggis” which was superbly and entertainingly delivered in a totally incomprehensible (to a mere Sassenach anyway) Scottish language. This was followed by a traditional haggis, neaps and tatties starter to an excellent 3 course meal. Thomas Mc Tulk gave us an insight into the immortal memory, followed by John Muck Drummond with an amusing and insightful “Toast to the Lassies”, and an equally insightful and amusing reply from Gill Edwards.
The evening had great atmosphere with Scottish dress tartan kilts and sporrans on display to accompany the black ties and the elegant ladies in their evening gowns and frocks.
The taxis arrived much too soon but we will be back next year to toast the memory of Rabbie Burns.
Many thanks to Tommy Tulk and Rob and Sandra Ford for their support for the raffle which raised £225 for St Margaret’s Hospice.

Night Golf report
Night Golf 4.12.14
A good evening had by all but I must admit chaos reigned for a lot of it! Thursday lunchtime numbers settled out at 23, so Graham had to find some old clubs to step in and make it even. Then a call from Graham Load…stuck in traffic and too far away to get to us in time but he would join us for George’s chilli. Handing out cards “Where’s Steve Stopforth?” Still waiting for call to say it was on! My fault. I forgot to text him back! Quick team reshuffle…hopefully one torch in a group at least.
It was really quite eerie out on the course...diffuse moonlight, so you could actually see quite well without torches but it was so quiet. Where was every one? We hardly saw or heard any one. My team was convinced it was all a big trick and we would get in to find everyone sitting in the bar eating, having only pretended to play. But no. Thank goodness! Everyone played and enjoyed it. No one fell in a bunker or ditch or broke a club.
The winners were Angela Baker, Neil Hewitson and Martin Wicks but how they managed to play, let alone win, I don’t know as they seem to have laughed the whole way round and were still rolling round with laughter after they collected their prizes, Angela comfortable in her pink socks. Henry Edwards, Ann McRae and Rob Ford were second and on countback in third place, Roy Parmiter, Ray Edwards and Graham Holloway.
Thank you to the weather gods and to everyone for making it work.
A CHEQUE for £24,300 was raised for St Margaret’s Hospice in Yeovil at this year’s Long Sutton Golf Club charity fun day
Western Gazette reports:-
A CHEQUE for £24,300 was raised for St Margaret’s Hospice in Yeovil at this year’s Long Sutton Golf Club charity fun day.
The event’s organiser Richard Dore and golf club chairman Thomas Tulk met with representatives from the hospice on Thursday to hand over the donation.
Mr Dore said: “Most of the money was raised at this year’s event, which had 57 teams of four people taking part.
“Some was also raised by the club’s captain Phillip Lock and member Gill Edwards, who was sponsored to complete 100 holes in one day.”
The charity golf day took place in July and featured a tombola, raffle and auction alongside the golf tournament.
Mr Dore said: “We raised £300 more than last year.
“The tournament was set up 21 years ago after a group of golfers lost a friend who was cared for at St Margaret’s Hospice. Every year since then we have used the event to raise money to support their work.”
An official presentation of the cheque took place on Saturday at the golf club.
