Briggensians Golf

The 2017 Autumn Meeting of the Golf Society took place in gale conditions on Sunday, 22nd October at Elsham Golf Club. The players did very well against the conditions with Nick Golland chipping in for a Birdie and an Eagle but the overall trophy winner was Ted Cox after a very tight contest against Roger Holmes - well played Ted.

The AGM followed the game and Allyson Golland was elected Captain for 2017-18.

Ted Cox stood down as Secretary and was roundly praised for the excellent work he had done in adding structure and organisation to revitalise the golf section. David Harness is to take over as Secretary in 2018.

John & Sylvia Wedding

John Hastings (1961-1966) - Old Briggensian and Science & Sport teacher has married Sylvia (Woodland) at Westborough Methodist Church in Scarborough.

Around 400 people attended the service with two choirs and three vicars all wanting to be part of the celebrations.

They had a wonderful day and Briggensians wish them great happiness especially as Sylvia is not too well at this time.

50 years and Counting

Dave Brittain writes:

What a fantastic event to walk down memory lane after 50 years since joining BGS.

Great work by organiser Robin East and helpers. Many thanks to our fantastic and generous hosts Mike and Vickie Hewson for staging the gathering.

An excellent night was had by all at Mike's farm near Newark with great hospitality, wonderful food and a few beverages to wash it all down. In addition, we were privileged to catch a glimpse of some of Mike's fantastic motorbike collection.

Thirteen attended with two regrettably not well enough on the day but altogether there are already a potential 21 contacts and should others read this then do send us a message if you attended BGS approx 1958-1965
