The High Sheriff of Bedfordshire, Colin Osborne, held a Charity Golf Competition at South Beds Golf Club for Crimebeat Bedfordshire and Luton on October 3.
Leighton’s mayor Ray Berry (not being a golfer but knowing a woman who is) asked the mayoress, Val Berry, to attend on his behalf and she made up a team of four ladies from Leighton Buzzard Golf Club who were then entered as the Leighton Mayor’s Ladies.
The mayor said: “As the only ladies in 10 teams, they represented the mayor and the town remarkably well by winning the overall competition.
“As a Crimebeat match, I can honestly say that there were no bandits on my team – my Ladies are serious golfers who all did me proud!”
Crimebeat is a national charity supported by the various High Sheriffs across England and Wales.
Bedfordshire and Luton Crimebeat provides funding of up to £500 for community safety/crime reduction projects to benefit young people or projects to benefit the wider community but run by young people.
The main fundraising event of the year is the annual golf day.
