The Golf Society's programme is now underway. Already three events have taken place : our member's day was at Brookmans Park on the 5th May. We entered teams in the Prince Arthur Cup at Walton Heath, where 54 livery companies competed in this prestigious competition, and at Porters Park in a day organised by the Pewterers. All were very enjoyable.
The season continues with inter-Livery days at Verulam, Sunningdale Ladies and Wildernesse. Our own major
Golfing Day at New Zealand Golf Club is on July 29th where we hope to have at least 30 competitors. The Master plans to join us for lunch and present prizes. ( We do eat as well as play golf.) All members of the Livery are welcome to join the Society and New Zealand and Wildernesse are still open to new members. If interested, please contact the Hon Sec, Liveryman Don Munro. We have also entered a team in the Lord Mayor's Golf Charity Day at Stoke Poges on July 11th. This is being organised by The City Livery Club Golf Society on behalf of the Lord Mayor's Charity Appeal. It also celebrates their half centenary as an independent society. Unfortunately it coincides with the last day of the Master's Weekend. The diary is rather crowded at this time of year. There are three golfing days within a period of eight days. If you are a golfer, come and join us. Follow the example of our latest recruit, Liveryman Albert Chinn, who is 83 years old and a liveryman for 25 years. He plans to join us at New Zealand Golf Club.
The two Sheriffs of the City, Alderman Charles Bowman and myself will be touring the City on horseback on 27th July, and raising funds for the Sheriffs’ & Recorder’s Fund in the process. This very worthwhile cause provides small grants to London ex-offenders, helping them into work and changing their lives.
Wearing our full Shrieval kit, complete with swords, we will have a mounted escort of officers of the HAC Light Cavalry, and City of London Police. It should be quite a sight and, as a complete novice on horseback, I am learning to ride for the occasion - I need all the support I can get!
Charles and me would be really grateful if you would sponsor us – we suggest a donation of just £10. This can be done via our Just Giving page– http://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sheriffs, or by texting to CBCR66 £10 to 70070
Very many thanks indeed for your support.
With all best wishes,
Christine (Dr CH Rigden, Sheriff of the City of London, Central Criminal Court, Old Bailey, London EC4M 7EH)
