Brett Vale Seniors held a Memorial Golf Competition on 28th September in memory of John Barnett, a popular member of the club who had sadly passed away suddenly, with a special trophy donated by close friend Andrew Burl for the winner. This new competition will be held annually in John’s memory.
This stableford competition was won by Peter Turner with an impressive 46 points, and the photo shows him being presented with the trophy by Michelle Barnett, John’s widow, who attended the presentations with members of her family. There were several prizes for runners-up and a number of Nearest The Pin winners, which had kindly been donated by club members and colleagues.
During the day various fund raising took place with proceeds being donated to Pancreatic Cancer UK, including an auction of various items by member Barry Root, and approximately £1000 was raised for the charity.
