Austrey Golf Society

The Austrey Golf Society is over 20 years old , and although none of the original founders are still playing, the Society continues to thrive with over 25 members today. Many of our members live in Austrey and surrounding villages, and play at various golf clubs in the area including Drayton Park, Maxstoke, The Belfry and Willesley Park in Ashby.

We play once a month, always on a week day, and at least 8 times a year. Costs vary from £25 to £40 for an 18 hole game and usually include an English breakfast before we tee-off. Our choice of golf course varies from Championship to more local courses, but always in the Midlands and we look to play at different clubs every few years.

Attendance is optional, although at least 16 members meet up and play once a month. Quite often members bring friends or work colleagues along as guests.

We have 4 events still to play this year: Loughborough on Friday 21st July, Ingestre ( Stafford ) on the 18th August, Bloxwich ( Walsall ) on the 22nd September and Whittington on the 18th October. 2018 events start in March and will be organised soon.

Membership is only £25 per year, and the fee goes towards prizes and our optional annual Christmas dinner.

Guests are always welcome, at the same cost, and if you are interested in joining, or would like to come along as a guest to see if you would like it, then you would be most welcome.

Tamworth Football Club Academy

Tamworth FC is delighted to announce that Austrey Playing Fields are now being used by the Club's thriving Academy. The youth development operation at the Lambs, which was relaunched in 2015, has around 130 local youngsters attached to it from the ages of 7-16. As well as this, 24 players aged 16-18 joined the Club on a full-time football and education scholarship in September.

Tamworth FC General Manager George Delves commented "The new 3G pitch at The Lamb has been a big help to the Academy, however, we have grown very rapidly and were on the lookout for another high quality venue. We were made aware of the situation at Austrey over the summer, and jumped at the opportunity to get involved. It has been great to see both the scholarship group and our U16 Midland Junior Premier League team playing there every Saturday morning."

First team Manager Andy Morrell, who also uses the facility for his coaching company iAM Football, added "We have been made to feel very welcome by everyone connected with Austrey, and have been impressed by how well the pitches and dressing room areas have been looked after. We are aiming to enter more Academy teams into league programmes next year, so will be down there even more regularly. There's a good chance we will bring the first team and U21 lads down for some sessions during pre-season also."

Tamworth FC would like to place on record its thanks to everyone connected with Austrey Playing Fields, and looks forward to a close working relationship in future. For additional information about youth development at Tamworth FC, please contact georgedelves@thelambs.co.uk

Walking Society

WALKING FOR HEALTH

Austrey has a very active walking group who meet every Friday morning at 9.50am. Our usual meeting place is the car park of the Baptist Church. However, during periods of bad weather when local trails are sodden, we arrange to travel by car or bus to nearby sites where gravel trails allow year-round walking. 

We are part of the Warwickshire Councils Walking for Health project and as such aim to walk between 2 - 4 miles. We do, however, structure our walks to allow those who wish to go further the option to extend their walk.

 

If you wish to join the group or try out one of our walks ring Pam Orton on 01827 830487 to confirm when and where we are meeting next.
