Competition was high on the agenda for the ladies of both Royston and Heydon Grange golf clubs.

The Johnson Matthey Mixed Draw Cup is one of the most popular competitions at Royston and this year's event saw 12 pairs playing some exceptional foursomes golf.

In the end though there were clear winners, with the duo of Kath Caunce and Keith Taylor taking the spoils with 42 points.

Pam Bonnett and Dave Bidwell took second while Susan Bidwell and Gerry Squires were third, both teams scoring 40 points.

The prize for the front nine went to Kim Bradfield and Graham Toby while the back nine was won by Marjory Humphreys and Sid Seward.

The day was finished with a raffle which raised £470 for ladies' captain Tracy Parson's chosen charity - Dementia UK.

A spokeswoman for the club said: "Many thanks go to Johnson Matthey for once again fully supporting this event and enabling our charity raffle."
