CHIPPING NORTON BOWLS CLUB

 

PRESS RELEASE

 

The Outdoor Section held their annual awards ceremony in the clubhouse on Saturday 5th November where members and guests enjoyed a lovely meal before the trophies were handed out.  Our President Tony Backer-Holst did a marvellous job standing in for Competition Secretary Nigel Siford who was on holiday but had left a very witty speech which Tony was under strict instructions not to read beforehand. 

Oxfordshire Bowling Association President Peter Latter had taken ill at the last moment but his place was very ably taken by the Deputy President and our own member, Bill Jarvie, who presented the awards.  Unfortunately there were a few recipients who were not present on the evening to receive their trophies but a good evening was had by all who did attend.  The Club Person of the Year was deservedly presented to Martin Acock for all his hard work on and around the green, particularly now being fully qualified in dealing with pesticides for the green maintenance.

Our thanks and appreciation goes to Chairman Val Harris and her committee for all the hard work over the season.
