Annual Narpo Christmas market trip on Thursday 23rd November 2023
Circulated and republished on Facebook and Narpo website, not just to remind people of the trip but to also notify them of the pick up points & times. It is just a month away. I am suggesting leaving Bristol by 4.30pm, which will give people six hours there, more than enough time for everyone. I currently have 26 names, please let me know if you are attending, if you are not currently listed.

Pick up points etc can be found on our News page

Thanks

Annual Golf day 23

Report from Simon Merrick
Due to unforeseen circumstances, including a last minute change to the organising arrangements, a change in the venue from Clyne golf club to Neath golf club presented a different challenge to this year's participants of the 2023 Narpo golf championship.

On a blustery but dry and sunny Friday September 29th, 21 eager competitors took on the hilly and demanding golf course.

As well as competing in the individual stableford competition, golfers took part in a number of other challenges in their 18 hole stint.

Report from Phil Taylor (Sec)

Swansea Narpo held their annual Golf Day, on Friday 29th September 23 at Neath Golf Club. It was organised by Simon MEYRICK and was well attended. The day was fine with a slight breeze but after the recent bad weather was appreciated. A warm welcome was extended by the club, and the day started with a welcome from the club captain who attended especially to receive us.

After a hard fought contest, last years winner, Alun Morgan relinquished his title to David ROBERTS who not only won the main competition but also the prize for the longest drive.

Afterwards at the 19th hole, a pleasant meal was provided by the club. Thanks are extended to Neath Club, and their captain and staff, and of course to Simon for his efforts in planning the event. All in all a very pleasant day.
