Tydd St Giles Golf Club’s senior members got together last week to celebrate the life of one of their own.
Family members of popular golfer Dennis Bonne, who recently died aged 78, joined the Tydd players to scatter his ashes on the fringe of the 18th green at the club he loved so much.
Dennis’ wife Marian, daughter Vanessa and son-in-law Josh attended, with Marian revealing that he cherished his time at the club – especially the fun and friendly banter.
Tydd’s senior club captain Trevor Sewell scattered the ashes on what was a sad but memorable occasion for all involved.
