On a crisp wintery day, the new officials at Helsby Golf Club took part in the annual Club Drive In competition recently.

Captain Chris Stubbs from Kingsley, Lady Captain Chris Marsden from Chester and President Kathleen Wilkinson from Ellesmere Port were delighted to hit drives more or less down the middle of the fairway in the traditional start to their year in office!

Captain Chris Stubbs has been a member at Helsby for 39 years, is a retired Commercial Manager and former Secretary of the Towers Lane Club. Lady Captain Chris Marsden joined Helsby 6 years ago and is a retired Research Chemical Manager who counts bridge, tennis, skiing and theatre amongst her hobbies. President Kathleen Wilkinson is the Club’s first Lady President and is a past Lady Captain and member for 50 years. Her family has strong link to the club: her husband is a past Captain, daughter Julia came through the junior ranks and her mother was a Past Lady Captain.

The chosen charities for the year are - for the Captain, Claire House Hospice and for the Lady Captain, The Neurotherapy Centre in Saltney Chester. Both will be raising money for these very worthwhile charities with a variety of events planned throughout the year.
