Midhurst and Petworth Rotary Club members were driving off in driving rain when they held their annual charity golf day.

Rotary spokesman Helen Chapman said: “Sun is the norm for the event at Cowdray Park Golf Club, but not this year as it was held in torrential rain and gusting winds. There were a larger number of ladies playing – 22 this year. Out of the 31 teams of four just one optimistic player didn’t even have waterproofs! But there was laughter including the six men pulling a buggy from a bunker when the driver’s excuse was rain on the windscreen!”
