Without Bunny Vulliamy, Reigate would not have a croquet club. Joining in 1969, he quickly became Secretary, and then Chairman, in the process rescuing the moribund club and setting it on its current highly-successful path. Bunny bequeathed a substantial donation to the club upon his passing, and this money has been put to good use creating a viewing platform at the North end of the lawn, known as the Vulliamy Terrace, and a Commemoration Seat, which were officially opened on April 7th 2018.
A plaque was added in remembrance of all Bunny did for the club, and the terrace was opened with some kind words from Chairman John Bristow.
The members gathered spent the day enjoying the Chairman’s Choice – a fun (but competitive!) day involving a mix of quarter-lawn, 2 hoop association and golf croquet, followed by another of Freda’s excellent lunches.
High handicap winners (who tied) were Sue Rice & Judy Perry. Low handicap winner Martin Peacock kindly donated his prize to the other two!
