Well done to Bob Howard and Simon Cook who won this event in a field of 26 pairs.
A great afternon raising money for The Haven Homelessness Charity, well done to Saroj and her team of helpers. The total raised was just under £1050.
The final total raised for Children in Need was £714. A happy bear.

10 members of the club went litter picking for 2 hours on Sunday 15th October along Nightingale Road, Walsworth Road, Station forecourt and Veralum Road in Hitchin.
People are disgusting - we managed to accumulate 13 bags of rubbish including a disintegrated road cone, a parasol, half a broom, an advertising banner, countless plastic and glass bottles and enough fag ends that the pavement probably contracted cancer.
Sorry that photographer was still busy clearing the top of Nightingale Road when we finished so no group photograph
Sadly Kevin is leaving Hitchin for pastures new.
All who have played with or against will appreciate his kindly nature and helpful advice.
We wish him well and hope he might visit the club occasionally.
Congratulations to Shelagh and Sheila winners of the Rising Stars 2017 competition.
