Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is an honour to accept the office of Bowls Cornwall President for 2017 and I am looking forward to visiting as many clubs as possible and meeting with you. My thanks must go to my club, Porthleven, and to all Group 1 and County Officers for all their encouragement and support over the last two years.
I shall do my best to be a good ambassador for Cornwall and for the sport of bowls.
I welcome Jennie Maunder to the Presidential team and together with Peter Prynne and Tom Reid I am sure we have a strong team and will work well together.
Many clubs I know are struggling with declining numbers but it is up to all of us, as individuals to work hard to recruit new members to ensure that our sport, which we all love, flourishes. It would be a shame to lose any more clubs in our County.
I hope all bowlers will have an enjoyable, successful and healthy year and look forward to seeing you on the green.
Bowls Cornwall President 2017
