Again, Wrekin Golf Club did us proud, not only providing a very warm reception, first class golf course, but rounding the day of with top quality cuisine.
A number of guests joined to enjoy the evening's entertainment where Tim Stimpson, our President, regaled the guests with tales from Rugby's dressing rooms.
During the evening Telford Hornets Rugby Club Chair, Judith Phelps, presented a cheque for £813 to Shropshire Wooden Spoon, raised during their club's Fun Day, earlier this year. ( Photograph shows Mike Edwards -Treasurer of Shropshire W S; Judith Phelps and Tim Stimpson) Judith was heard to comment that "it was the first time that she had had a British Lion on his knees in front of her!!".
Judith has been a member of Spoon for many years, and has agreed to join Shropshire's committee. With her wealth of knowledge of the game, and connections, she will prove a great asset to our team.
