Memorial Cup 2017
OD Memorial Cup 2017
MEMORIAL (Buckingham) CUP (In Memory all past Club Members) SUNDAY 14th May 2017
Presentation of New Seat to Club
President, John Winup, Ladies President Diana Adcock, and Chairman Mick Utting receive from Alan Gardiner a new seat in memory of Alan and Joyce Hutson. Joyce was the sister of Denny Gardiner, a founder member of the club, and she and Alan had given the club many years of loyal service. Joyce was a regular member of the bar staff and Alan worked for many years with brother-in-law Denny on the maintenance of the green.
Alan, a nephew of Denny, explained that Linda, Denny’s daughter and now resident in Canada, had donated the seat on behalf of the family.
The presentation, appropriately made before the drive for the Memorial Cup (a trophy commemorating past members), came a few weeks after a similar family presentation of a seat in honour of Denny.
Richard Harrison (club secretary) would just to like add a personal thank you to Linda for the numerous emails over the last few months enabling the selection and purchase of the lovely bench that is now in place at the club. Plus arranging for Alan to be present at the official presentation of the bench
