There was quite a surprise in store for Eric Giles after completing his round in the EGGS annual Turkey Trot at Bridlington Links.
Being last out, gave other members time to receive him at a surprise dinner to celebrate his 80th birthday. The men’s and EGGS Sections had bought a box of cut glass whisky glasses and Elaine Hardcastle announced a further accolade. Pure Leisure, the Links owners, have made Giles an honorary life member.
This is in recognition of him being a founder member, past captain and past president of the club spanning its 21-year existence.
