    I didn't no bill and can't say i met him but what i do no is if this sort of day is what bill was about then i think this should be an annual event in the stocksfield golf club calendar because myself and the three guys i played the round with thoroughly enjoyed it great fund raiser, and well done � to whoever organised it

    Bill will forever be a huge miss.
    Sadly, I couldn’t make the ‘fun event’ on Saturday due to personal reasons.
    However, from all accounts it was a huge success and I can only echo the suggestion from David that this should become an annual event.
    Thank you to everyone involved in it’s organisation.
    Well done !�
