A MESSAGE

FROM THE PRESIDENT

I trust you, my fellow bowlers, have kept safe during the last year and are getting through this pandemic.

I have been asked to carry on as President for the 2021 season, which I gladly accept.  It is hoped that we will all meet on the green and enjoy a year of bowling albeit under covid19 restraints. I will endeavour to visit each green during this season and wish your clubs well for a great year of bowling.

I am also hoping that you will all be able to attend my President’s Day, which, god willing, will be held on Saturday, 7th August 2021. Details will follow shortly after we have discussed arrangements to include the new mandatory rules we will need to follow for this year.

I would like to thank Stowmarket Bowls League Committee for all they have done for myself and for other bowlers over the last year. I have no doubt that the work that has gone on has been a great challenge to all Committee Members and it will be a great relief for us to get back to normality.

Happy bowling each and every one of you.  Enjoy your season and most of all, Stay Safe.
