To All Memebers of the Bournemouth and District Women’s Bowling Association

It is a great honour and a privilege to be your President for 2023  and to represent Lymington BC in this role.

I hope you all have an enjoyable  and healthy season, full of fun and laughter, meeting old  and new friends alike, as seasoned bowlers or as new  members of the association.

Good luck in all your matches, whether it’s in B&DWBA  league games competitions, friendly games  or County competitions.

Also a special welcome to all our new bowlers joining  clubs in the B&DWBA this year.

My chosen charity for the year is the Bournemouth and District Women’s Refuge, and I hope you will all help me to support this very worthy charity.

Hopefully we will be blessed with good weather,  good bowling and good health.

See you on the green
