BUNGAY and Waveney Valley Golf Club have a new club captain.
Len Bird began his captaincy when he hit his driver into a stiff northerly wind on the first hole. With guesses ranging from 30 to 250 yards the sweepstake was won by John Kent and Margaret Hoffman who correctly predicted that Len's drive would be 142 yards.
John Grant School at Caister will be the recipients of the sweepstake and is Len's charity for the year.
After his drive-in Len said: “I have chosen to support John Grant School at Caister because I know what excellent work they do to help children with learning difficulties. This is quite close to my heart as I have a nephew who suffers with autism who attends the school.
