Annual skippers’ dinner at Astbury

On Thursday, Astbury Golf Club seniors held their annual skippers’ dinner, when the current skipper, Vaidy Iyer, and nine former skippers, representing the years 2002 to 2020, and their wives, met in preparation for the new season.
Wine for the table was provided by seniors’ chairman and former skipper Richard Alcock, and the flowers by Christine Alcock.
The party enjoyed a “sumptuous” meal and drinks prepared by Astbury’s catering and bar staff.
Post-prandial entertainment was in-house, with a high quality of jokes and stories delivered by the assembled company; Derek Riley even managed to get to the end of his story without laughing so much that he forgot the punch line.
