Presidents message to the Ladies

I am extremely proud to be Worcestershire's Ladies President for 2020 and I would like to express my thanks to St.Dunstans Bowling Club for nominating me and for their support already in place for this coming bowling season.
 
As Junior Vice and then Senior, I have learned a lot from my fellow officers and I must give a particular vote of thanks to Joyce Lamb and Viv Hall and to our now immediate past President, Gill Barkas for her continued support and I would like to offer my congratulations on her very successful year as President last year.
 
As always I all lady competitors participating in the County Competitions the very best of luck and I look forward to supporting all finalists at Leamington in the National Finals. Also times are changing for the Worcestershire ladies with our entry into the Middle England League which I'm sure will bring fresh challenges for us all, so please nominate for games whenever possible, support your county and share the enjoyment these matches bring.
 
My season starts with my coffee morning on April 21st to raise funds and awareness for the Worcester Warriors Dementia Sports Cafe so I hope to see many of you there for a catch up and to support this worthy cause.
 
Finally here's to an enjoyable season of outdoor bowling in 2020. Whether you are playing a club friendly or a County competition, bowls is a great sport there to be enjoyed by all age groups and abilities so let's fly the flag for Worcestershire!
Judy Drewer.

Presidents Message.   

On behalf of Worcestershire Bowling Association I would like to welcome you all to the new 2019 season.  It’s somewhat of an unusual year for us as this year we did not elect a Men’s President at the Annual General Meeting which took place in December 2018. Because of this I, as Senior Vice President, will be undertaking

many of the Presidential duties ably supported by members of the Committee and Past Presidents.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Bill Greenway for his Presidency in 2018 and wish him a speedy recovery and a full return to bowling following his recent knee replacement operation.

Like many I was a late starter to bowling waiting until I had retired from work before deciding to take it up. I was attracted to bowls as it is a sport that I hoped I could be involved with for years to come enjoying the friendliness and team spirit of club and county matches. I play my club matches for Gilt Edge Bowls Club and I would like to express my thanks to the committee and members at Gilt Edge for their support.

The 2018 season saw our men’s competitive team have some real success particularly in reaching the semi final of the Balcomb Trophy.

For 2019 Keith Weaver (Gilt Edge), will be taking on the role of County Competitive Team Manager.  I wish Keith every success in his new role and look forward to giving him my full support.

Finally I would like to congratulate Gill Barkas on becoming the Ladies President for 2019 and trust she will have an excellent year.

I’m looking forward to the start of the season and reacquainting myself with old friends and making new ones and I wish all of you good bowling.
