The Glenda Ricketts Memorial Salvers was played on a beautiful warm sunny Autumn day and the Nevill was in superb condition for the event – a perfect backdrop for the last County event of 2015. With 72 competitors from 24 different clubs, everyone entered into the spirit of the day, with more than fifty shades of pink!
Bea Janes, Glenda’s sister and Mel Kirk, Glenda’s daughter, played in the event and John Ricketts, Glenda’s husband, kindly presented the prizes.

At the heart of the day is fundraising for Breakthrough Breast Cancer, and we set ourselves the challenge of beating last year’s £2200. Everybody was treated to a most entertaining auction run by Rosie Chisholm-Hill, who excelled herself and has obviously missed her calling of comedy auctioneer! The 2/4 ball voucher auction raised an amazing total of £1640 – thank you to all the clubs who so generously supported the event.
The raffle by Pat Codd, Nevill Lady Captain, raised £440, and John Ricketts kindly donated £250. With everybody’s fantastic efforts we expect to have raised about £2,500 – thank you everybody for making the day such a success.
Thank you to the team at the Nevill who host this event every year, and the excellent roast was enjoyed by everybody.
