As the President of Burnham Hillside Bowls Club it is an honour to be holding this post for the 2017/18 year. As the club’s representative I look forward to meeting all our existing and new members throughout the Winter and Summer seasons.
I have been a member of the Club for many years and seen many changes, all of which have been beneficial to the club. These changes could not have taken place without the undying support of all the members voluntary input or support. One group is the dedicated Green Team, for without their tireless work we would not have an excellent standard of Green to play on.
I look forward over the months to be residing over numerous competitions and watching all the up and coming bowlers as well as those established with many years’ experience albeit in friendlies, leagues or competitions at home or away.
With all the games that are taking place sometimes we forget all the hard work that has taken place by the Captains, Selectors, Games Secretaries and many other officers without which our successful Club would not be possible and to them I am indeed indebted. As President I am honoured to be allowed to nominate a Charity on behalf of the Club during the duration of my presidency and I have chosen Essex Air Ambulance which I hope you will support generously at the appropriate events that take place!
It just leaves me to wish you all the best of bowling and who knows some of you may come away with some silverware!
