East Cheshire Hospice fund raiser at AEGC a great success
The club were delighted to host Paul Braithwaite, the well known climber and mountaineer who gave a talk about his climbing experiences. The evening was organised by the East Cheshire Hospice Wilmslow Support Group and with over 100 attending, was a huge success raising £1,200 for East Cheshire Hospice (ECH).
ECH Spokesman Ned Spencer said: “Paul's talk was both informative and inspiring. His tales of climbing up Everest (and other mountains) were awe inspiring. His modest presentation style made little of the life threatening adventures he experienced. The many questions he was asked at the end of the talk showed how engaged the audience were. The success of this talk is down to the hard work and enthusiasm of our member Chris Manley. The local ECH Support Group is busy planning a number of different events - please get involved and for more information email: firstname.lastname@example.org”
Chris Manley thanked Paul for his excellent talk, the ECH Support Team for their help, the attendees for supporting ECH, and also thanked AEGC - Chris Hoyland and his team, and Hilary Gradon, for hosting the event and looking after the attendees so well.

Captain’s Drive In photos
The traditional Captain’s Drive In took place on a very fine New Year’s Day with the usual good support from members and guests. Chris and his team provided an excellent brunch breakfast before Mr Captain, Lady Captain and Junior Captain held the Drive In. Drinks, nibbles and beef barms were available afterwards to round off a very sociable morning.

The Legend that is Gordon Smith
After 55 years and 5000 rounds of golf at AEGC Gordon Smith has taken home his clubs as he has decided, at 96 and a half, to retire from golf. He will still come up to the Club for Social events but he will not be booking the 14.00 Thursday slot anymore.
An article about Gordon was sent to Local Golf News -North West and the Wilmslow Guardian both of which have now published the article. Pick up your copy in the Clubhouse.
Celebrity Antique Road Trip
Early in the year the production company (STV) who make Celebrity Antique Road Trip approached the Club to see if they could film their 'meet and greet' scenes at AEGC.
Clearly we were delighted to support this great programme and so along came Charles Hanson, Margie Cooper with their celebrities Anthea Turner and Andy Peters. At the time we asked the production company to give AEGC a credit at the end of the programme and to let us know when it was scheduled to be broadcast.
Unfortunately they didnt let us know when it would be broadcast but did give us a credit at the end. For those of you wishing to watch the episode you will have to access BBC iplayer as it was shown on the evening of Monday 20th November on BBC2. When searching on iplayer look for 'Celebrity Antique Road Trip' Series 7 episode 6.
Thank you to our Celebrity Antique Road Trip watchers who brought this to my attention!
