Greetings to all Bedfordshire Bowlers.
It is an honour to be your President and represent the County for 2022 and I look forward to meeting more of you on and off the green during the coming year.
I would like to thank my club Linslade for their wholehearted support for me in this venture.
I am looking forward to working with the members of the Executive and would like to welcome Gordon McCann of Potton on to the committee
I would also like to congratulate David Rutt for his work during the last year which was at times very challenging.
There are a lot of challenges ahead, not only with covid but also keeping our sport going for our grass roots bowlers. We must put a lot more effort in to recruiting new players into the game.
I’m hoping this year will go smoothly as we look forward to a full year of competitive bowling.
My charity for the year is Prostate Cancer UK, unfortunately something I have had personal experience of. I hope you will give generously to this worthy cause
Stay safe and I look forward to the year ahead
As you know, we have no Ladies President this year which, although disappointing, has given our Ladies Past Presidents an opportunity to step into the spotlight again, practice their speeches and take on the role of Acting President for each of our 2022 county matches and other presidential duties. This will also include Barbara Carter, our Immediate Past President, who stood as President for two years during the most difficult of times and the County thanks Barbara for her continued valuable commitment.
No President, means no President's charity - but if we know the ladies of Bedfordshire, you will again dig deep and help us to raise money for the most worthy of causes at this time - NHS Charities Together.
Good luck to everyone in your competitions this year and we look forward to seeing you on the green.
