We are delighted to announce the appointment of Janet Finlay as the new Hon Secretary of Keepers of the Green, to succeed Dougie Miller who has now returned to full time employment on the reporting staff of the St Andrews Citizen.

Janet is no stranger to "Keepers"!  In fact, Janet was our charity's first ever administrator, providing support to our Founder, the late George Makey, from 1997 – 2002 which culminated in her being awarded Founder Life Membership status.

Janet assisted with the organisation of our golf tournaments; maintained regular communications by producing members' newsletters; instigated the development of financial systems and controls; and liaised with local health boards and social services to identify suitable recipients for powered wheelchairs. She also set up "Keepers" first website.

Janet handed over the administrative and secretarial responsibilities for "Keepers" to Jimmy Bone in 2002 when she joined the St Andrews Links Trust as Golf Coordinator – a position she will continue to hold whilst carrying out her Hon Secretary duties.

Janet's family is immersed in golf with husband, David, and sons, Scott, Iain and Niall, all playing to single handicaps.

Janet can be contacted on telephone 01334 479572 or by email
