Today we had a marvellous time at the Chippenham Golf Club attending the 50th Anniversary Party of Tracker Dave Sperritt and his wife Geraldine.
The event was attended by family and close friends of the couple. We took along our partners and enjoyed complimentary drinks before an excellent three course meal in a private section of the clubhouse lounge. This was followed by a humorous speech from Dave who recounted their times together since the wedding day in 1967. Immediately before the group entertained the audience with songs selected for the occasion by Dave and Geraldine, Phil Hall sang through ‘After All These Years’ – a Foster and Allen song – as a tribute to the anniversary couple.
Anniversary cake was served with tea/coffee after our performance.
We missed having the company of Tracker Brian Elliot, his wife Gill, Tracker Dave Hackett and his wife Jackie. Margaret Dyke also could not attend the event due to a commitment at a wedding.
The weather was bright and sunny for most of the time, although a short cloud burst did send the golfers scurrying off the course for a period of time. But the sun shone again to allow the guests to leave the party in the dry.
Many thanks to Dave and Geraldine for organising such a successful event.
