Ascot Ladies Day 2017 - poster.pdf
Cotswold and District League Winner Cirencester played Bristol and District Alliance Winner Bristol & Clifton on the 19th march at Cirencester Golf Club for the CHALLENGE BOWL initiated a few years ago.
This match was played in great spirit despite a rather cold, strong wind developing through the day.
Cirencester welcomed supporters and teams with a welcome cup of coffee and warm danish pastries at the start and the opportunity to partake of a warm drink/soup at half way house.
With the highest handicap being 12 all matches were extremely close, the majority going to the final hole.
The teams sat down to a meal of soup and chips to warm them up and the winning team was announced by the Chairperson of the Cotswold and District League, Jane, and the challenge bowl presented to Emma Brereton as Captain of the Cirencester team. She and her team were over the moon as this was the first time for winning their league and then to win the challenge bowl was the icing on the cake.
Bristol & Clifton Ladies are determined to regain the bowl at the earliest opportunity I am sure as they already have their name on it several times.
Lady Captain's Charity 2017
Lady Captain Angie Brassey retrained after 29 years in PE and did a 2 year course in Educational Special Needs, specialising in the second year in Visual Impairment. This then took her into a job at the RNIB (Royal National Institute for the Blind) New College in Worcester where she enjoyed teaching PE to blind and partially sighted children.
Angie told us that many of the children found great enjoyment in a variety of different sports and this often provided much needed exercise and 'relief' from a sometime partially restricted life. However, in order for the students to take part safely they needed extra staff, coaching and specialist equipment.
This is where British Blind Sport comes into play by providing the extra funding needed to support the children and take them on from the school/college situation to regional, national and international competitions.
Lady Captain of Tewkesbury Park Angie Brassey, pictured here with Vice Captain Sally Morgan, has chosen British Blind Sport as her charity for 2017.
