0 Sutton Bridge golf club greenkeeper retires

A small celebration to mark nearly six decades of greenkeeping at Sutton Bridge Golf Club has taken place.

Andrew Norton receiving the ladies gift from Lady President, Brenda Bell.

The greenkeeper, Andrew Norton, retired after almost 58 years at the club .

The Norton family came to the club in 1952, when Andrew was just 18 months old, and he began his work as a greenkeeper in 1965, graduating to head greenkeeper in 1985.

A presentation on behalf of the club was made to Andrew by the club's president, Norman Davis.

Lady president, Brenda Bell, presented Andrew with a gift of his favourite tipple from past and present lady members.

Only a few members were present as Andrew, said he "did not want a fuss".

The presentation was followed by a meal with the existing greens staff.
