Mercia branch golf day returns after COVID delay

  • Monday November 22, 2021

Now in its 11th year, the IHE Mercia Branch Annual Golf Day was held at The Shropshire Golf Centre on 3 September.

Tracsis – a leading provider of software and hardware products alongside data capture, data analytics and event transport planning and management services – kindly sponsored the event.

The main aim of the day was to have a sociable game of golf while raising revenue for the IHE Mercia Branch to fund, support and provide continuous professional development (CPD) for our future technicians and engineers. This provides valuable CPD hours for our members to develop their knowledge and skills, as well as for the IHE to comply with the requirements of its licence with the Engineering Council.

An enjoyable day was had by all and the overall winner was Carol Alford of Alford Projects (pictured) and runner up was Grant Wilson from our sponsors Tracsis. Thank you to everyone for attending, and to our sponsors Tracsis for supporting this event. The 2022 event has already been confirmed, so please pencil in the date in your diary – Friday 16 September. It will be held again at the Shropshire Golf Centre. More details to follow.
