Maryport Golf Club’s annual event proves a swinging success raising funds for Cumbria breast cancer care units


Maryport Golf Club recently hosted its Annual Pink Day in support of Breast Cancer Care. Over 100 lady golfers from across the county joined forces in donning fun fuchsia outfits and teeing off in competition, raising a fantastic total of £2850 for the breast cancer care units at Whitehaven and Carlisle Hospitals. Every penny donated from the event went towards amenities within the wards.


TENNIS UPGRADE!


Lorton Tennis Club celebrates a major upgrade of its courts, two of which are now laid to modern carpet, rather than ageing tarmac!


For the first time, Carlisle-based Facilities Management company Orian Solutions sponsored the event, having been approached by former employee and Maryport Ladies Captain Margaret Gunson. Orian’s Marketing representative Clary Hayes, who attended the event, said:


“It is a great privilege to join the efforts of the Club in raising funds for such an important cause. So many of us are personally affected by breast cancer and raising awareness through events like Pink Day can really change lives.”


Prizes were presented inside the Club House for accolades including Best Dressed Team, Top Player and of course, Winning Team – awarded to Workington Club players; Ann Martin, Patricia Green and Kay Stout. Many local businesses and attractions also gave their support to the event by donating generous raffle prizes, further demonstrating the unified and supportive spirit of Cumbria. The grand total raised by the ladies now stands at £17,850.00 and this much-loved annual tradition is set to continue for many years to come.


If you would like to donate to the Club’s grand total, email Margaret at margaretgunson@outlook.com - thank you! Clary Hayes

Members and visitors alike can enjoy the new surfaces, which enhance playing opportunities throughout the year and are kinder to limbs, both old and new!


The member-owned club has three courts, two floodlit and now newly- surfaced, a clubhouse and full changing rooms. The committee is extremely grateful to local organisations for grant funding and assistance from the Lawn Tennis Association, which helped reach the target funding for the project to proceed.


At a special social afternoon, the new courts were launched by Lord Dubs, who lives in Lorton and supports the Club. Alf, who at 85 is one of its more senior members, joined around 1996 shortly


after arriving to live locally.


He commented: “I am delighted to enjoy the new court surfaces with you all. Lorton Tennis Club is surely one of the most beautiful venues in the country and even poor players like me, are always made welcome by better club players!”


The club aims to get more people playing tennis and offers initial free ‘Give it a go’ sessions to juniors and adults interested in taking up a racquet sport, or revisiting the activity from the past!


You can be sure of a friendly welcome at the club with its wonderful views down the Lorton Valley. It offers regular social sessions and coaching opportunities for junior and adult members; plus, online booking including pay and play for non-members.

COCKERMOUTH THROUGH THE EYES OF THE ROTARY CLUB


~ COCKERMOUTH ROTARY CLUB ~


With almost 80 years association with the town, Cockermouth Rotary Club and its latest president, Joe Fagan thought it would be a great idea to offer a calendar that captured some of images of what


makes Cockermouth a great place to live. The glossy large format calendar features full-colour pictures for every month of the coming year. As well as helping local charities, the club hopes the calendar will make great presents for distant relatives and friends.


The calendars, which cost £7.50 each can be purchased at the following outlets: J.B Banks, Strolling for Shoes, Percy House Gallery, the New Bookshop and the Swan Inn. Rotary Club President, Joe Fagan said:


“It is with great pride that the club has produced a 2019 calendar dedicated to our vibrant, picturesque gem town and some of its many independent businesses. The production of this


calendar was only made possible by the excellent photographic artwork donated by our members and residents of the town.


“Cockermouth Rotary has been in existence since 1938 and in our 79th year, we are still fully-committed to serving our community. All money raised from the sale of these calendars will go to Rotary charities.”
