On June 6th both Nick and Peter’s favourite recreational sporting activities combined creating an event which East Lancashire Box could not pass up the opportunity to participate in, the first (and hopefully not the last) ever Rossendale Rugby Club Golf Day held at Baxenden Golf Club. The fact that Rossendale Rugby Club is Nicks pride and joy and Peter, when not working, is most likely to be found on a golf course feeding his golfing addiction, meant they were both adamant a East Lancashire Box team would be entered in this event.
Initially the plan had been for Peter to participate along with 3 others, however, due to unavoidable commitments elsewhere he was unable to attend. Luckily Ian Shuttleworth came to our rescue along with 3 of his friends. Ian has worked for the company for 26 years and is our second longest serving member of staff. When he is not off delivering goods to our customers around the country he always finds time to pop into Peters office for a little “Golf Chat”, therefore, he was the perfect candidate in place of Peter.
Ian did us proud and brought home the win!! He and his happy men played on top form. Although it was a close competition and they were hunted down by other teams but they managed to withstand the pressure and finished the day at the top of the leader board meaning that the East Lancashire Box team are the official winners of the 2014 Rossendale Rugby Club Golf Day.
We would like to say a massive congratulations and thank you to Ian and his fellow team members for doing ELB proud and bringing home the win!! They won a day out for four at a Rossendale Rugby Club match with prime position on the Rossendale Rugby Club Wagon which we hope they thoroughly enjoy.
We are already looking forward to the 2015 Golf Day, the pressure will be on to maintain our top spot.
