The special event. A bronze plaque in recognition of Graeme Veale was attached to the wall at the entry to the Clubhouse. This will ensure that he (being the last of our 3 club legends) is never forgotten.

So to those who knew Graeme, when new members see the plaque for the first time, and ask ‘who was Graeme Veale’ please tell them about this legend.

A photo of the plaque is attached.
