The Sporting Life!

The WCSM were guests of the Middlesex Yeomanry at the annual clay pigeon shoot, which was held at Longmoor army camp on July 9th. The Spectacle Makers team, accompanied by two Yeomanry cadets, were notably successful – in fact they believe it they only just missed out on a call to Rio to help out the Olympic team…..

In 2016 our golf day was held at Whitefields Golf Club on the 7th July. Thanks to Nikon Optical for their continued support and sponsorship of the day. The Society Trophy was shared by Brian Bowles and Gordon Jones who, unlike last year’s winners, Christine McLaren and Mike Hawkins, did not celebrate by getting married to each other. The Masters trophy was won by Brian Collison with a score of 32pts on countback from Brian Bowles, and Michael Hawkins came third.

In the prestigious inter-livery Prince Arthur Cup, this year the Spectacle Makers came second on countback, getting even closer to our second win! If you would be interested in getting us to the top, or just playing a round or two from time to time, please do get in touch with Liveryman David Kirk, via the Clerk or directly by email to
