St George's Hall, Liverpool
A small group of ladies from AGC had a lovely afternoon at a concert held at St George's Hall Liverpool, to celebrate the Queens 90th birthday.
Edna & Joan enlisted two servicemen to join in on the photo shoot. A lovely afternoon was had by all.
A visit to Sefton Park Palm House - Edna Smedley
On 26th April I visited the Palm House at Sefton Park Liverpool with St. Helens U3A gardening section.
Whilst there it was announced that I was the 1,500,000th visitor to the Palm House and I was presented with a birthday cake made in the shape of the Palm House.
The cake was too heavy for me to carry so it was cut up and divided amongst the U3A members.
Reflections on Ashton Golf Club’s Centenary Year 2002 - written by the then Lady Captain in 2002, Lucy Lowe
Monday February 18th - 2002
Today Ashton Golf Club is 100 Years old!
Our Morning group of ladies played golf then raised their glasses of champagne to toast the Club and all its members. It was great start to a wonderful year. I still enjoy reflecting on the many special events of 2002. In July, we were joined on the golf course by County Captain, County President and 19 Lady Captains of the Liverpool Society on a perfect sunny day, followed by lunch and dinner with our lady members.
Our ladies’ teams made us proud when they reached the InterClub Final at Royal Birkdale Golf Club and the Scott Legatt Final at Blackpool North Shore Golf Club. We celebrated many topical events at our weekly Presentation Evenings.
On Jubilee Day, we toasted the Queen dressed in red, white and blue. We had a ‘gradely’ feast on St George’s Day and a Texas Grill and Big Apple Pie for American Independence Day. Mr President (of Ashton not the USA!) thought we were crackers when we welcomed him Marilyn Monroe style at his Prize Presentation!
And what of our non-golfing celebrations? Remember when ‘Ascot came to Ashton’ and many of us were at Ladbrooks the next day collecting our winnings? We even made the front page of the local paper and got a mention on TV!
Who remembers our evening conducted tours of Liverpool with Sylvia our personal guide? Our world cruise on December 14th Mr Captain's Farewell Dinner. it was certainly a night to remember! Well it was for me – if only for my dress code! Add to these events our Noel Hunt Trick Golf Demonstration; our Ladies Exchange Day in Llandudno; our Old Time Music Hall; and our sponsored walk at Carr Mill Dam on a sunny Sunday afternoon when we raised £2060 for Derian House! Oh! - and so many more happy days. It really was a memorable year.
