Welcome to Warwickshire Women's Bowling Association
I feel very privileged to be your County President for 2018 and will carry out the role to the best of my abilities.
My thanks must go to Blossomfield Bowls Club for my initial nomination, for the support I have received so far the support I know I will receive from them during the bowls season itself.
The same thanks goes to the Warwickshire Officers who have welcomed me into their fold and to Elaine Taylor especially for all her hard work in arranging my tour to Eastbourne next May.
Bowls as a sport is so inclusive and gives us opportunities to play bowlers of all ages, abilities and disabilities as well as creating friendships and camaraderie.
I am extremely proud to be a part of Warwickshire W.B.A. and to be associated with the many talented bowlers in the county. I look forward to playing alongside or supporting you during the year and also working together to build on the successes of the past and creating many more during 2018.
I wish you all a healthy and successful year.
Annual General Meeting
Before Chris Ward stepped down as President and handed the chain of Office to Joy Cooke she was delighted to hand a cheque for over £2000 to Rachael Stevens from Myton Hospice on behalf of the County ladies who have all played their part in raising this substantial amount for the 'Myton at Home' division of this very worthy cause.
As well as thanking everyone for their support during her year in Office, Chris took the opportunity to particularly thank Janet Scott and Di Green for all their hard work over the last few years as they stepped down as Treasurer and Competition Secretary respectively. Hopefully they will be able to take advantage of a well earned rest during the summer and enjoy their bowling.
Chris went on to say how much she had enjoyed her year as President and wished Joy and everyone all the best for 2018.
Mary Wheildon (Warwick Boat Club) was welcomed as Junior Vice-President to join Chris Cooke (Southam) as Senior Vice-President and the rest of the Executive Officers.
