What a busy week!

The last week has been busy for us, running from the RAC Club in Epsom to The Berkshire Golf Club, back to Epsom and finishing off with 2 days in Wales with the fabulous Poppleton & Appleby Golf Classic.

                                       The 27th Poppleton & Appleby 
                             Celebrity Golf Classic at St Pierre  

This fabulous event, hosted by Poppleton & Appleby and the Variety Club Golfing Society, has been going for 27 years. I attended my first one back in 1994, when I was still wearing shorts, as pointed out by the host, Martin Coyne.  

Guests are entertained over the weekend, starting with a gala dinner on Sunday night, followed by a celebrity golf day the next morning. The objective is to donate a Sunshine Coach to various schools, this year's lucky recipient was Queensbury School in Erdington, Birmingham.

Amongst the celebrities attending were; Kevin Whately, Tiff Needell, Warren Clarke, Len Goodman, Paul Jones, Willie Thorne and Keith O'Keefe to name but a few.
