Sutton Bridge golf club greenkeeper retires
A small celebration to mark nearly six decades of green keeping at Sutton Bridge Golf Club has taken place.
The greenkeeper, Andrew Norton, retired after almost 58 years at the club .
The Norton family came to the club in 1952, when Andrew was just 18 months old, and he began his work as a greenkeeper in 1965, graduating to head greenkeeper in 1985.
A presentation on behalf of the club was made to Andrew by the club's president, Norman Davis.
Lady president, Brenda Bell, presented Andrew with a gift of his favourite tipple from past and present lady members.
Only a few members were present as Andrew, said he "did not want a fuss".
The presentation was followed by a meal with the existing greens staff.
