Postponed COVID Solicitors v Surveyors Golf Tournament

In early October 2021, Martin Reynolds and Emma Docking took to the newly refurbished course at The Caversham, and played in the long overdue Reading Commercial Property Lawyers v Surveyors Golf match.

With just over 26 of us playing, we were grouped into teams of four and played 18 holes of match play golf. With the first group teeing off at just after 11 am, many of us we able to take advantage of networking over bacon rolls and teas and coffee in the morning period – fueling ourselves in preparation for the 18 grueling holes that were to come.

After 5 and a bit hour (some less than others), this year the Solicitors and Surveyors drew, and the Surveyors will continue to retain the cup until next year’s competition.

The long day ended with a three-course meal kindly prepared by The Caversham and with more opportunity to network. Co-organised by Fields Seymour Parkes and Hicks Baker, the reason for the golf day however was more importantly, to raise money for the winners chosen charity.

As both the lawyers and surveyors drew, it was agreed that the funds raised would go to Beth’s Bursary Fund in conjunction with Sobell House Hospice in Oxford. We raised an amazing total of £595 on the day which will be donated to Sobell House Hospice, that will assist in funding the training of professionals in end of life care. Beth’s Bursary Fund was set up in memory of a recently retired Hicks Baker Consultant, Neil Foreman, whose daughter Beth died of cancer at a young age in 2016.

Thanks to everyone who attended, and hoping that next year the Reading Lawyers come out with a win.
