I am very pleased to be your President again and I am looking forward to an enjoyable and favourable year.
As you will know, I have been a member of KVBC for many years (since 1973) and have seen many changes over the years, not the least of which being the number of members. This includes the time it was deemed necessary to limit membership to 120 playing members, this being the capacity of the green.
In those days it was not allowed for my son (aged 14 in 1976) to play bowls, even on Sunday afternoons. Neither were ladies allowed because bowls at KVBC was a game for men only, aged over the age of 18 years. Fortunately, time and rules have moved on and we now welcome all comers and hope that all members will support the President and encourage their friends and family to come and join us.
The committee and I can only do so much to run the club but it is the support of you, the members, who are the club and play a vital part towards it’s future.
In conclusion, may I wish you all an enjoyable bowling season and thank you for your support throughout the coming year.
