Greenkeepers Sandra and Rod Smale were thanked for their efforts in a challenging hot summer, along with fellow captain Rita Hamshere and vice-captain Di Jewell.

President Susie Thurlow handed over a cheque for £3,039 to Chris Williamson, a trustee of Headway Hertfordshire, who provide support for people affected by acquired brain injuries.

Bar members will now play indoors at Hatfield, Watford or Cheshunt and welcome newcomers.
