Picture: Bob receiving his award from Paul Robson Bowls England Senior Vice President
There could only be one event that could stun Bob Hirst into silence and that happened today at the County Lunch. Paul Robson, Bowls England Senior Vice President announced that Bob has been awarded the Bowls England Certificate of Merit, only the 53rd ever to be awarded.
Paul spoke of the 50 years of service that Bob has given to Henlow Park alongside the many years of service that Bob has given to the County.
Bob retires as County Competitions Administrator at the AGM next Saturday.
Bob said that it suddenly dawned him that Paul was talking about him and he never dreamt that he would ever receive this honour.
Bowls Bedfordshire could never ever thank Bob enough for what he has done for our county. We all wish him well in his retirement.
Thank you Bob!!!!
