Golf Mark Award
Filton Golf club were awarded the Golf Mark High Achiever Award. Andrew Chivers, Chairman of the Junior Committee commented that “over the last 15 months the Junior Committee worked hard and pushed for the highest standards that we could possibly achieve. As a Club the philosophy has changed and members now see the junior members as a crucial part of the Club’s strategy to increase its membership in the years ahead".
The numerous courses and form filling along with implementing new procedures into the golf club has not been easy, and of course we have been very fortunate to have so many willing members at the golf club wanting to help and give up their free time to become part of the Junior/Academy team, in what has been one of the many great success stories at Filton Golf Club.
With guidance from our PGA Teaching Pro who oversees the coaching sessions, we were able to form a new Academy membership and without any advertising it was an instant success. This accreditation is testament to the hard work that the Junior Committee and Golf Club have put into providing a safer, securer and friendlier environment where junior golfers and academy members can learn to play golf and have some fun. The Junior Committee feels very proud of this achievement and with this high accolade we can keep moving forward building a secure future for Filton Golf Club.

Wilts Wholesale Electrical has been owned by the Kingsbury Family since 1946. The company was established back in 1925 by an electrical contractor called the James Brothers. They had three shops in local Wiltshire towns and an electrical wholesale business in Trowbridge. This business held the franchise for Exide batteries that were used in large country houses before the mains supply was established. After the war, the current owners sold the Trowbridge operation to George Kingsbury and his partner Len Doel. They had both worked within the business and saw that it had potential as an electrical wholesaler. David Kingsbury started working with his father, George Kingsbury, in the 1950’s and they operated with just one branch until 1974 when the Gloucester branch was opened. The Trowbridge branch was originally situated in the town centre but moved to its current location in the mid 70’s where it has grown to what it is today – a 150,000 sq ft distribution warehouse plus the 160-person Support Centre.
Filton Juniors are very proud to have Wilts Electrical as their sponsor.
