Special mention to the President Dave Banks who stayed both days from dawn to dusk and presented the prizes as well as making everyone welcome. He raised £216.17 over the two days and during the season £1576.83 together with £377 from items donated and sold on eBay. This totalled £2169 which will go to the Bournemouth Heart Club based at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital.
The Presidents prize was awarded jointly this year to Chris Dennis and Ken Joy for co-ordinating all of our bowls activity during the 2020 Covid season.
Last but not least we must say a big thank you to all those that were lucky enough to qualify and play in the finals and for all the constant support offered by members who watched and cheered from the side lines over the weekend.
Lets hope we can build on this year and make 2021 even more enjoyable. So I hope over the winter everyone stays safe and returns refreshed for next years foray.
