AGM & Luncheon at Devonshire Place
We were delighted to welcome 150 ladies to the 51st AGM & luncheon held at Devonshire Place on 8th February 2024.
President Pam Hall and Vice-President Julia Dunkley welcomed ladies as they arrived. Ladies were able to purchase or order merchandising on the day and meet with friends made through the Association, at this first event of the year.
There was a choice menu again this year which everyone agreed were delicious receiving many compliments from attendees.
The AGM started a little later than planned but was finished within 30 minutes and was informative but also light-hearted. There were cheers for winners of the competitions and laughter as ladies enjoyed inputs right through to the Vote of Thanks given by Jenny Martin.
The support received is really appreciated and we are most grateful to the Club Representatives who liaise with members of the Association on our behalf.
We hope that you all enjoyed your day as much as the Council did. We look forward to being able to welcome everyone attending our events and matches throughout 2024.

Twenty-four ladies played in the 9-hole AM AM on a lovely sunny day at Birstall golf club on Friday 16th September.
This is a popular event that brings together the incoming captains of 2024 for the first time. It is a good opportunity to meet and put faces to names and to confirm or arrange fixtures in the diary for the coming year.

Birstall provided an excellent course followed by a light lunch of jacket potatoes and salad.
Merchandising was available on the day & our secretary, Lynda Bramley, advised the ladies about the Association.
