Thanks To Harry Membrey

From all the present and past golfers, THANK YOU is the least we can say to you to express our sincere appreciation for everything you have done for our Club organising and running the monthly golf day over the last 15 or so years. We will all miss your leadership, friendship and your infectious personality around the golf course.

The following personifies Harry: Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots and you get good breaks from bad shots - but you have to play the ball where it lies.

Thanks Harry.
