Tenth anniversary golf day in Fenland proves a big hit

LOVELY hot weather at Priory Golf Centre, Wimblington, and a great day for FENDIS and Fenland District Council who presented Golf Day; this year was special, the 10th anniversary of Golf Day.

The day was started by MP Steve Barclay who came to see the event and see young adults with learning disability to have a fun round of golf and talk to young people and volunteers.

Soon everyone started to have a round trip of golf; the young people who took part get a t-shirt, key ring and a certificate to say well done for a great game.

A BBQ was also held including burgers, hot dogs, and cold drinks. There were also arts and craft were held and get them to make handmade Ribbon or a flag and also there were archery and football activities.

Dave Boy Green, the chairman of FENDIS, didn’t turn up as people expected to see, but everyone had a lovely time.
