Welcome to Warwickshire Women's Bowling Association
With the start of the New Year it’s great to see the evenings drawing out again and we can already begin, despite the cold, to look forward to the next bowling season.
During this closed season please continue to support your Clubs. Many of them offer social events; keep fit classes; coffee mornings and short mat games. The ‘magic fairies’ are repairing, fixing and caring for our greens and clubhouses, work that can’t always be done when the season is in full swing. The Match Secretary, Competition Secretary and their Assistants have already been busy organising this year’s calendar of matches and competitions. It’s a complex job finding venues and matching calendars between Clubs and Counties. All the Committee meet regularly and we’re kept up to date by the County Secretary.
In my garden the harbingers of Spring are already popping up – daffodil bulbs are sprouting and the magnolia tree is filling out its buds. The hedgehog has finally gone into hibernation! However the fox is a regular visitor to the pond at night. My two golden Retrievers, Hazel and Bailey, love the cold mornings and any snow will be greeted with joyous jumping and barking! I don’t think I’m up for joyous jumping – at least not until April and the greens are open again.
Stay warm; Stay well and I look forward to meeting up again in April.

It was with great sadness that the Officers learnt that Pat Gee had passed away. County President in 2005 Pat was always ready to support and encourage the County Players as well as her own Club, Blossomfield. She will always be remembered for her sense of fun which was always at the forefront. Pat's funeral is on Wednesday 28 February at 3pm at Robin Hood Crematorium, Streetsbrook Road, Shirley, Solihull B90 3NL.
Our condolences go to her family and friends at this sad time.
