Marie Curie Fundraising

Jimmy Gardner & Mount Vernon would like to thank all who participated, contributed & helped to make our Golf Day held on 24 August such a huge success. On the day we raised the fantastic sum of £3,486. 

Jimmy Gardners persuasive charm certainly helped to cajole people into buying raffle tickets, sign up to playing & others to donate prizes for the Golf & Raffle.

Adding the £4,855 raised from our Sportsman’s Breakfast held earlier in the year we raised a total of £8,341 for Marie Curie Hospice, Edinburgh which we are all delighted with as a total figure. Once again we would like to thank all who supported us over the year.

Date for your diaries for 2020 – Sunday 29th March, Marie Curie Fundraising Sportman’s Breakfast with guest speakers – Peter Martin, Eric Davidson & Bill Copeland.

Notice of Works to Clubhouse and Professional Shop

Works to carry out the External Painting of the Clubhouse, Lounge and Professional Shop will commence week beginning 7th October.

It is expected that the works will take three to four weeks to complete and members need to be aware that in order to safely carry out these works various types of access equipment, including motorised platforms, will be in place at various times throughout the contract.

Although signage and where necessary barriers will be in place with regard to working areas and wet paint we would urge members to assume at all times that newly painted surfaces may be wet and that extra care should be taken.

It may be necessary to close the downstairs external entrance to the locker rooms for short periods. At these times access to the locker rooms will be by way of the main entrance.
