With 70 members and partners sitting down to dine on a 3-course meal last night, Parklands was filled to capacity. The Vets annual dinner and presentation night was well attended and well organised, and Lynn and the staff worked hard all day to prepare and serve a traditional Christmas fare. The trophy presentation was well attended with most of the winners collecting their trophies on the night. A generous amount of donations ensured a wide distribution of raffle prizes. Thanks to all who helped to make the occasion go so well.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Barrie Guy who was a proud Parklands member for many years. Barrie passed away peacefully in his sleep yesterday evening. Barrie was Club Captain in 2001 and served on the Men’s Committee as the Handicap Secretary for many years. He made a lasting impression with many of us as a gentle giant and a family man. He exuded a genuine warmth with his approachable demeanour.
