At the recent Newton Green Ladies’ AGM, outgoing ladies’ captain, Sally Cade, thanked her committee and members for all their support over the club’s 110th year.

She enjoyed being involved in the decisions on the refurbishment of the clubhouse and reported that the ladies’ section raised just over £1,100 for the club captains’ charity, the Kernos Centre.

Incoming captain, Rebecca Evans, said the big drive would be to raise money needed to alter the ladies’ changing room.

The ladies were in the forefront of the running of the club as a whole and were delighted that Dora George had been asked to become a vice president.

The club captains’ charity for the year would be the Jude Brady Foundation, whose aim is to raise awareness of stillbirth and neonatal deaths in the UK.
