It was a pleasure to also see the ‘people behind the scene’ get recognised with a special congratulations to Allen Lockie who claimed the Volunteer of the Year award!
Allen is a new recruit to the club, he arrives in the dark before tournaments, club events and functions, has a quick chat to our greenkeeper to see where he can help and effortlessly gets on with the job that needs to be done in rain, hail, and wind or blistering heat. You do not need to ask him to help; he is a man who will ask you. He would stay all day at the club to carry out those little jobs, work that quite often goes unseen. For a new member, that is just a third year bowler Allen has a great attitude, he is good willed and generous. For someone like to Allen to give one of the most precious things – his time, the club is grateful to have him.
