Benefit For Ranui House in Christchurch

Ranui House is one of the houses that families stay free of charge when a member of their family is being treated for a chronic disease. Linda Hanna is currently in remission with Leukaemia and went through three difficult treatments of Chemo and radiotherapy. Peter Hanna and his family had the experience of benefiting from Ranui House while Linda was being treated. Apparently a number of families from Tasman and Nelson benefit from this facility. Peter is planning a concert at the Hope Community hall on 30th November at 7.30pm at a cost of $20 a head and all proceeds are going to Ranui House. George Rutledge and the Gabor Trio plus a number of other acts will entertain you on the evening. Apparently the acoustics are great so it promises to be a great evening. Contact either George Rutledge phone 5410134 or Peter Hanna 5440304 and be in quick because the tickets are selling well.

Practising On The Course

Greenacres rules are simple, if you are on your own please don’t hit more than two balls. On the fifth tee a couple of weeks ago someone was practicing of the blue tee with a number of divots on the tee and this idiot did not even bother to repair them. If anyone spots someone doing this please let us know so we can deal with it.
