Twelve teams of four golfers competed in the HRCST golf day at Budock Vean Hotel on Friday 16th September. Charles Richardson, co-chairman of HRCST, was delighted that the event raised over £2,000 for the Children’s Sailing Trust.
The Longest Drive competition, sponsored by Nova Construction, was won by Piran Trezise and the Ladies Longest Drive was won by Ann Pollard. The Nearest the Pin competition, sponsored by RTP Surveyors, was won by Roger Mildren.
Strong, gusting winds made the course challenging, even for the best golfers, but the Texas Scramble format led as usual to some excellent, low scores. The winning team was Roger Mildren, Alan Engall, Tim Goddard and Chris Ramsden.
The Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust (HRCST) celebrated a record-breaking year with a fund-raising advent carol service at St Constantine Church on Monday [28 November].
Children from Mawnan and Constantine primary schools, many of whom are learning to sail with the HRCST, formed a candlelight procession through the church before an evening of readings and musical performance. They were joined by the church choir and the Trengilly Singers, in a service led by St Constantine vicar the Reverend Stewart Turner.
