In Honour of Chill
I want to thank all of you generous people who contributed to our fund for The ‘Graham Hill Memorial Copse’. We raised £1244.67p net from JustGiving and a further £90 from The Falcon donation bucket and £80 from The Big Club collection bucket. My sincere thanks to Peter Thompson and Norman Fothergill respectively for their wholehearted support of their dear friend. Further thanks to Prudhoe Golf club in allowing us to bring this aim to fruition. Shaun Philipson has worked tirelessly with me and I thank you greatly Shaun. The copse of 30 oak trees has been planted and all of them seem to have taken ( further thanks to Alan Smith and his team for their time and effort in planting).
As indicated in earlier blogs we are holding a golf day in Graham’s honour on Saturday July 8th. Tee times will be from 2pm until 4pm. The format will be a 9 hole Texas scramble for teams of four costing £40 per team. The entry fee is to cover the entertainment and refreshments which will be held in the clubhouse. We are having a naming ceremony when the golf comp finishes (around 6.30/7pm) at the copse on the 17th hole. After the naming ceremony we’ll all head to the clubhouse to have an evening of fun and happiness, just as ‘Chill ‘ would want us to.
To enter a team I can be contacted on 07789664594 or messaged through messenger on fb, or emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to seeing many of Graham’s family and friends on what I believe will be fantastic day to celebrate our mutual love and respect of a truly great guy. Thank you all so so much Steve. Please share this with your friends xx

Trees For Chilly
A group of oak trees will be planted at the 17th hole in memory of one of its popular members. Friends and family of Graham Hill (51), known as Chilly, are raising funds to plant the copse as a long-lasting memorial to him. Graham unexpectedly took ill just after Christmas and his death on December 30 came as a huge shock to the many who knew him. The father of Jack had only married his new wife, Andrina, in September. A group of friends set a fund-raising goal of £1,500 for the oak trees which will transform the 17th into ‘Chilly’s Copse’. A charity golf day in Graham’s memory is planned for June. Close friend Steve Wilson, who is spearheading the project, said: “Chilly really was a larger than life character. “I want to do something that will remind people of him every time they play golf. “But I don’t think anyone who knew him would forget him! I see oak as the ‘king of the trees’, and I think that is fitting because Chilly always stood out.” Donations can be made at a justgiving page under Steve’s name.
