Are you a golfer (active or resting) of mature years?
The U3A Golf Society was formed a few months ago by Chris Vernon. The group includes a number of founder members who are keen to get other golfers in Haddenham U3A involved. If you're not currently a member of Haddenham U3A, this might be an excellent reason to join.
The idea of the Golf Society is to play a social round once per month at a different course on each occasion. Given an adequate number of members, it will not be a problem if some are not able to play every month. So it shouldn't interfere with any other regular rounds in which you may be involved.
The rounds will be arranged at least one month in advance. There is no fixed day of the week, just what is most convenient to the players. The only costs are those on the day for the round and lunch. Transport is arranged between members.
So, if you are a player (or a lapsed golfer), and fancy trying it out, please contact Chris Vernon on 01844 291783 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

The latest one we've heard about, received this week by an elderly resident of Haddenham, was an attempt to extract banking details over the telephone in order to transfer "a council tax rebate"...
