Reviewing the weather forecast the day before, the decision was made to bring the club captain’s ‘Party in the Park’ event indoors and what a sound decision it proved to be, writes Liz Rogers.

However, the poor weather did not dampen the desire of those attending who, upon arrival, creatively dressed tables with a show of food of which any quality supermarket would have been proud.

Live Music was provided by Sweet Black Angels with John Capon providing the disco the busiest place in the clubhouse soon became the dance floor as many tried out a variety of moves and shapes.

As the evening developed the dancing seemed to become more challenging and during the evening one younger member came over to me and said: “I have never seen a club Manager, club captain, club vice-captain dancing together to Madness.”

I am not sure that the definition of dancing was accurate and only those witnessing the event can comment!

However, what is not in dispute is the effort and energy applied by Julian (club vice-captain) who, upon completion of his routine, was observed limping back to his seat.

Hope the pulled calf muscle repairs itself soon.
