It was another great day in glorious sunshine for Caldicot Male Voice Choir’s associated Golf Society, the Birdie Boys Charity Golf Event at the Marriott St. Pierre Old golf course on Saturday 2nd September. Well done to the Manor Parc for defending the overall trophy, hope to see you next year when you go for the hat-trick.
Thanks to everyone who once again took part in a fabulous annual event. A significant amount of money was raised to help the Severn View Open Doors at Chepstow with their Sensory Garden project to help sufferers of dementia and related diseases. The Choir hopes to raise enough for the project to build outbuildings such as a potting shed, tool shed and gazebo.
Special thanks must go to outgoing captain, Alyn Dawe for all the hard-work in organising the event; to all the sponsors including Likes Landrovers, JAGA Haulage, the Tredegar Arms, Shirenewton together with the numerous hole sponsors; to the guest teams that took part; to the helpers who took the money, Sharon Ward and Grahame Morton; to Lyn Gauntlett for producing the scorecards and a special welcome to chorister Maurice Penny who will be taking over as captain of the ‘Birdie Boys’ for the next year. We are sure he will be, like previous captains Alyn Dawe and David Gould a huge success. It was a delightful pleasure to welcome representatives from the Severn View Open Doors at the after-game meal and presentation of trpphies and awards to prize winning golfers.
