100 Club - Kington Golf Club
Once again we are doing the 100 Club for the Golf Club. For £40 (or 76p per week - which is less than parking your car for an hour in some of the Hereford car parks!) you stand the chance of receiving a cheque every month.
The proceeds from the 100 Club go towards helping provide improvements for our exceptional Club.
Forms are available from Sarah in the Pro Shop.
Do support us.

Vice Captain running Hereford Half Marathon - Sunday, 10 May
As you are aware our Ladies' Vice Captain, Pip Frost, is running the Hereford Half Marathon on Sunday, 10 May. She has very generously chosen her Charity to be the Joint Captain's Charity, 2015 - St Michael’s Hospice. She has done this so that we can all sponsor her from the Club thereby helping our Charity.
Sponsorship forms are now available behind the bar at the Club.
Do please support her generously. Running a Marathon, as many of you will know, is not simply running on the actual day but all the hard preparation and training leading up to it. We wish you well, Pip.

Defibrillator for the Golf Club being installed this month
The Social & Fund raising Committee have been investigating the purchase of a Defibrillator for the Club. After several enquires, West Midlands Ambulance Community Officer , Noel Orbell will be bringing a De-Fib to the Club in April under their Community De-Fib Scheme for Free scheme. This is superb as a De-Fib can cost around £1,500 inc VAT to purchase. Kington Golf Club warrants a free De-Fib under this Scheme because of its rural location.
Several members will receive free training from Noel Orbell.
The Social & Fund raising team are organising an outdoor temperature controlled box to house the Defib and this will allow access for not only the Club members but also the general public, walkers etc.
Details of how to access the box will be given to all members once it has been installed.

We have just had an inspection by the Enviromental Health Officer and the Club has received a 5 Star certification for the kitchen and the bar. Congratulations should be given to the House Committee for organising the upgrade to the kitchen at exactly the right time and also to those who helped do all of the work - particularly to Paul England and David Patterson who wore through several pairs of Marigolds!!
