UK: Appropriately top of the greens in the IoR Northern branch golf day was a team from building compliance and energy assessment company Green Zone Surveys.

Green Zone Surveys was one of 19 teams enjoying the day at Close House in Newcastle, one of the top 100 courses in the UK and boasting Lee Westwood as its associated tour professional.

Organised by Ray Jones and Becky Treece-Birch of Dean & Wood, the day included a fun event called the Island Challenge. Located near the clubhouse is a lake with a pin in the middle. The idea was to get nearest the pin or a hole in one with three balls. The winning golfer was Steve Collins of Project Refrigeration who collected a bottle of champagne. Importantly, £235 was raised for the Children’s Heart Unit Fund charity on behalf of the IoR.

The raffle prizes generated a further £540 and the IoR Northern Branch would like to thank the following for their generous sponsorship: Dean & Wood, DWG (Ireland), Mitsubishi Electric,  Kooltech, Acrol Air-Conditioning, Hadrian Air-Conditioning, EJM, Cool-Logic, Upnorth Group, TQ Environmental, Ventilation Supplies, Javac, A-Gas, Sauermann, Pump House, Aspen Pumps, Henry Technology, Lawton Tubes, ITE, Fujitsu, and Advanced Engineering.

Everybody seemed to enjoy the day immensely, not least the Sauermann team (The Three Amigo’s: Simon Daly of Sauermann, Fujitsu’s Paul Airey and Kyle Bray of Advanced Engineering) who were clearly in good spirits
