Some very good comments from golfers have been made recently about the marvellous state of the course.
Here are a few photographs of the course and thank you for the favourable comments.
Another fantastic Oakridge event was staged as the annual Ascot Ladies Day was celebrated at the club organised by Margaret Bell her family and friends, and of course the staff at Oakridge.
As usual the money raised from the day long and evening extravaganza will be used to help fund the primary school in Kitwe’s Chimwemwe are in Zambia.
The ladies in their stunning dresses and head wear were treated to some great entertainment, singers, dancers and the exciting live racing from Ascot. Generously the money flowed all day as the raffle, bingo, heads and tails and photographs were supported by the ladies.
Thanks must also go to our golfing members and vistors who saw the clubhouse taken over by the glamorous ladies, apologies for the noise on the 13th tee.
The evening saw partners and husbands join them for what was a fabulous night. Pictures from the evening can be found on our flickr page,
The school website can be found here/ with a little bit of history (taken from the website) can be found below: ‘’The Margaret Bell School is a Christian pre-school and primary school situated in Kitwe's Chimwemwe sub-urban area.
The school lies about 10 km to the north of the town centre. Lying in the copper belt in the north of the country, Kitwe is an important centre for copper mining and has a population of approximately 400,000. Currently there are more than three hundred children attending the school.
The Margaret Bell School was originally founded in 1997 by a young man named Berry Kafololo, and was initially called the WOA Community School.
The school is now named after an English teacher who worked at a school in Kitwe in the 1970's and visited the WOA Community School on a return visit in 2000. Impressed by the work being done, Margaret Bell decided to help the project with funds and supplies and in recognition and thanks the school was renamed after her. We are very grateful for all the support given to us over the years by Margaret Bell.
The school is now registered as a charity in the United Kingdom (Charity Number: 1151747) and various fundraising events have been staged. The charity is trying to raise funds so that we can buy land and build our own school building, class rooms, offices, toilets, bath rooms and school hall.’’
