Heydon Grange Golf Club took a moment to step back from the course and recognise the efforts of players and members over what has been a difficult but rewarding year.

The annual trophy night, back after a hiatus during the pandemic, saw the captains of the Fowlmere Road-based club, Gavin Thompson and Deborah Bryan, presented trophies to all the worthy winners.

The two main recipients though were Malcolm Knobel-Forbes and Carol Miller who were crowned club champions for 2021.

Away from competition and tournaments, the club has been involved in many fundraising events and in total raised £5,421 for its three nominated charities - The Mind Ed Trust, McMillan Cancer Support and Support 4 Sunflowers.

Slightly further north, an angling record was being broken at Nash Lakes, situated just off the A10 towards Melbourn and Meldreth.

Adam Cray was already having a good session after landing a 27lb9oz Mirror Carp when he caught a second weighing in at a whopping 37lb2, a new best for Wood Lake at the complex.
