On Wednesday 7th September Essex BIGGA hosted the annual Tri-match vs our Sussex & Surrey counterparts at Benton Hall Golf Club. First of all special thanks to the kind sponsors of this event, without the help of  Farmura & Ernest Doe & Son this event wouldn't be possible. On a warm & humid afternoon the players representing Essex Bigga triumphed and reclaimed the shield for the next 12 months. Thank you for all that participated especially those that made long journeys on the day, also thankyou to Benton Hall for their hospitality on the day.

Former regional administrator 


BIGGA & The Essex Section are saddened to learn of the recent passing of Derek Farrington, a former regional administrator of the association.

Derek died at home after a short illness.

He joined BIGGA in 1996 as part time regional administrator in the South East region. 

He had previously worked as manager of the Surrey County Staff Club, a facility made available for staff of Surrey County Council, Royal Borough of Kingston, Kingston University and Kingston College.

When he joined the association, Derek was a member at Coombe Wood Golf Club in Kingston.

His funeral took place last week (25 October) at Worthing Crematorium.
