Official opening at Whickham Golf Club
Whickham Golf Club, which is in my ward, received a grant to develop new facilities and to reach out to local schools to encourage children to take up golf as a sport. Since I am keen on mass participation in sport and healthy lifestyles, I supported the application when it went to Sports England. On Sunday, the facilities were officially opened by Gateshead Mayor Cllr Allison Thompson. I attended the event as well. As I have never swung a golf club in my life, the bit of me in the video attempting to do so has significant embarrassment value!
