It is truly an honour for me to represent the bowlers and clubs of the Gloucestershire Bowls Association.
I must mention my club, Moreton in Marsh, and thank them for their help and support for this, my year as County President.
The support and endeavours of the Officers of the County is also much appreciated. This is often not recognised by clubs and their bowlers. Their work to ensure that our Bowls Association continues to successfully move forward is invaluable.
Our Middleton Cup team and our Under 25's team need and deserve your support whenever they are playing. We have so many gifted young bowlers playing for those teams now. Please come to the matches and cheer them on.
You have my assurance that I will give you all my full support and I look forward to meeting as many bowlers as possible during the 2017 bowls year.
I also wish the Ladies President, Elaine Lewis, a happy and enjoyable year.
Enjoy your bowls.
