What have we been up to this month?
Women on Par event at Mill Green Golf Club 11th August 2019
We had our second Women on Par event on the 11th August at Mill Green Golf Club and what a brilliant day it was! We had 24 ladies take part representing 11 clubs across Hertfordshire. Of those at least 5 were total beginners and some were coming back to the game.
Registration included a Raffle which had the purpose to raise some money for the Lady Captain, Anita Marques' charity, HAD (Hertfordshire Action on Disability). £47.00 was raised which will go to a great cause.
There were a few nerves kicking around but once the ladies got onto the Par 3 course, the volunteers did what they do best and assured each lady as they went round with motivational words and the basics of the game. In the end we had our winners and with 72.2% of the challenges complete, Carol Trask came in 1st. In 2nd was Sara Hill and in 3rd Jess Everall. Congratulations ladies and thank you to Mill Green for providing excellent prizes on the day.
We are looking forward to our next event at Redbourn Golf Club on the 27th October and hope to see even more ladies come along to have some fun at our final event of the summer season.

FIT, FED AND READ PROGRAMME - AUGUST SCHOOL HOLIDAYS
The Hertfordshire County Sports Partnership runs a brilliant initiative called Fit, Fed and Read. This is a high-quality holiday activity programme ‐ including support with literacy ‐ in Hertfordshire’s most disadvantaged neighbourhoods, with a nutritious meal every day, free of charge.
Fit Fed & Read school holiday activity programmes operate out of Fire Stations across Hertfordshire during the school Easter and Summer holidays. Meals are supplied by Hertfordshire Catering LTD. Aimed at children between the ages of 7-12, the programme aims to introduce them to activity, learning and socialising.
Hertfordshire Golf, Chesfield Downs and Topgolf got involved in three sessions in August which all proved hugely successful. The children have been offered scholarships or follow on courses after the tasters during the holidays. We saw 20 children take part and some great potential for possible future Hertfordshire stars!
