Praying for Vanuatu in Ballina

The World Day of Prayer is a gigantic ecumenical event staged on the first Friday of March.

Greg Robinson and Sharon Thompson picked up the honours on Saturday when more than 120 golfers took part in  the Mullumbimby Rural Co–op/Whites Rural Classic golf day at the Mullumbimby course.

The annual event was originally set down for April but was rained off because of heavy rainfall on the day. But all came good for the rescheduled event.

‘The weather on the weekend was as good as it was bad in April,’ Neil Farquhar, board member of the Co-op said.

‘Because of the rescheduling there were a few less sponsors on board, but the course was in great condition and plenty of people came along for the golf,’ he said.

Greg was the best male player with his score of 42, while Sharon was the best female on course with 41 points. B Bartlet was the best non-golfer on the day.
