When Trevor Bishop was alive, he was very much a club man at heart and putting the Club first was high on his agenda, with matters both on and perhaps even more so, off the green. As such, his good lady, Sue Smith said she wanted something that would reflect this and felt it appropriate that there be a new trophy to recognise and reward the contribution of a person and / or persons, for their hard work and efforts in ensuring that the club continues to thrive and prosper both on and off the green. Thus the “Trevor Bishop Memorial Trophy” is to be an annual award for the Club member of the year. Each year’s recipient(s), to be decided by the Directors, (taking into account the views of the members), with the trophy to be presented at the AGM each year and the winner and / or winners name(s), will be engraved on the trophy for posterity.
For the first year, it was felt that it was appropriate that Sue Smith should be the inaugural winner and her name, be the first to go on the trophy. She said that Trev would be looking down, laughing along with all those at the match that had just gone and wondering what all the fuss was about, but very proud that the members were continuing to support and push the club forward in the right direction!
There is now a yellow bucket with member of the year award written on it on the front desk for members to have the opportunity to put in a recommendation for a member or members to receive Trevors member of the year award in January at Trevs match.
The glass trophy is displayed in the display cabinet in the dining room.
If you would like to recommend a member or members please use the paper slips provided and post in the box. Thank you.
