On a glorious late summer’s day, 84 golfers tee’d off at Hendon Golf Course, all in aid of Hertsmere Mencap. Tony Cottee, ex Everton, West Ham and England striker was warmly welcomed when he took to the course.

Paul Moser, Hertsmere Mencap”s Chairman was delighted with the turnout saying “everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we are particularly grateful to our sponsors, Pelicans Manufacturing and Grower Freeman Solicitors who were fundamental in helping us exceed our target for raising funds for the many activities we offer our members.”

The Society recently started a new weekly programme of Arts and Crafts, Cookery, Drama and Football which offers a full and stimulating week, improving the quality of members' lives.

The players were very pleased to have the opportunity to chat with Oliver Dowden, MP for Hertsmere, after the golf; here he is pictured with Paul Moser and Robert Errington, Hertsmere Mencap’s Treasurer.
