a beautiful June evening over fifty SEGS members and
friends, including Jean Lumsden and Gordon Smith, both
joined Committee Members and our
President at Sweetwoods Park
Golf Club to celebrate the
Society’s Diamond Jubilee.
Canapés and drinks were served on
arrival and guests reminisced
on the terrace or in the bar before sitting down to a delicious
roast beef dinner.
Throughout the evening photographs charting the 60 year history
of SEGS were projected on to a wall and diners delighted in
well known faces from the past. Of course,
were their own albeit a few years younger and with
Richard Greenwood, the Society President, gave his usual amusing
and entertaining speech before the grand raffle was drawn. There
was a fabulous array of prizes which included a round of golf,
deer stalking, a gundog training lesson and a shooting lesson
at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School.
The generous support of the raffle enabled the Society to make
a donation to Canine Partners and also fund the ‘Diamond
Award’ which will be awarded annually, to a member
or non member,
for their ‘Services to the Society’ during
the previous year.
An excellent evening of fine food, good company and fond memories.
