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.

44 hardy souls braved the icy north easterly blast in another epic encounter over the hallowed links on Bradnor Hill. As usual some pairs cogged extremely well and produced incredible scores.
After the golf they enjoyed a superb meal provided by Shirley Friend and were royally entertained by the inimitable John Hussey! John then compered a four-card classic horst racing event, prior to viewing the opening Six Nationas Clash from the Millennium Stadium.
Sincere thanks to all who contributed to a most enjoyable day which raised a significant £290 for the Joint Captains' St Michael's Hospice Charity Appeal.
