Welcome to BB&DBA
It’s been about eight years since I started to play bowls with the Association and I did not expect to serve as your 72nd President.
Although apprehensive at first, I am now privileged, honoured and excited that I have been asked to take up this post. I will ensure that I dedicate my time and effort into the smooth running of the BB&DBA.
The committee and I can only do so much, but it’s the support of you, the members, who are the Association and play a vital part in its future.
I would like to thank Tony Pilgrim, our immediate past President and my wife Beryl, for all the encouragement they give me; I know that I can also turn to the committee for their guidance when needed.
I am looking forward to working with Reg Johns as my Senior Vice President.
Please remember that the President is not alone, because it’s the committee that also need recognition for their dedication and loyalty.
Thank you, Shiona Pilgrim. Peter Ferriman, Eunice Pain, Mick and Jeanette Singer, Reg Johns, Peter Harris and Sue Hastings. Your Committee.
My Charity this year 2019/2020 will be Mind Care. Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind Care works alongside people with mental health needs and dementia, to improve their quality of life.
I wish you all a very enjoyable bowling season 2019/2020 and ask all our members to support and promote the Association by taking part in our games, both friendly and competitive.
