Presidents message to the Ladies

An enjoyable 'New Season' to you all! If you are unsure who I am, I usually wear my hair in bunches, and have a dog. As a bowler I am relatively new to the sport.

It seems incredible that I should be writing this message, and I have mixed emotions. Perhaps, overwhelmingly, I am honoured, proud and excited, as we are a small but emerging county, with strong clubs, experienced players and very talented youngsters.

I do have hopes for the season, including:

  • All bowlers see myself and the county organisation as approachable
  • All feel a part of Worcestershire, and are able to attend the county functions, enter competitions and nominate for county matches.
  • All qualifiers enjoy their experience at Leamington, and hopefully build on our successes of last season at the national championships.
  • The county team, which is representative of all players, fulfils its potential! We have narrowly won the South West League in consecutive seasons, and are now hoping to progress further in the Johns Trophy and Walker Cup.

For the future of bowls I would love to see school involvement in the sport, or possibly more realistically, Worcestershire taking the sport into schools.

My thanks go to past presidents for their inspiration and dedicated county officers for their time, commitment and knowledge. I especially thank Pershore Bowling Club for their confidence in me, and their support both before and, in anticipation, during my term of office.

Enjoy your bowling, but above all embrace all that goes with it: fun, friendship, and at times, dare I say it, frustration!

Presidents Message.   Gentlemen.

Welcome to the start of the new season. As we move into 2018, it would be remiss of me not to thank Ivan Poole for all his work over the past 3 years and I hope that he will guide me through the term of my office. As most of you probably know, I moved to Chester Road Bowling Club in 2016 after moving to Telford from Abingdon where I played my bowls for Morland Bowling Club. I received my full County badge for Berkshire in 1982, and have been County President twice (2005 and 2011) during that time, I have played against Worcestershire on several occasions.

Unfortunately, at this time, we are missing a Senior Deputy President, if anyone would like to join the team, please talk to me or a member of the Executive. The Junior Deputy President is Tony Keeling and I wish him well and hope he enjoys the run up to being President in 2020, this time will pass so quickly.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Clubs for allowing us to use Greens and facilities to entertain other Counties, this is greatly appreciated. Can I ask you to take time to consider bowlers who, through various reasons, may be struggling to cope with their current situations. The Benevolent Fund, through its Committee, have funds available and may be able to assist, please contact the County Secretary for information.

I will endeavour to uphold the standard and traditions set by my predecessors and wish you good bowling, good health, and many opportunities to make new friends and renew old acquaintances.

Best wishes

Bill Greenway
