Message from the Secretary/Treasurer

It gives me great pleasure to take over from Allan Hilton who after 26 years has finally decided he’s done his bit.  Many thanks to Allan for all he has done to keep the Past Presidents Association going.  We welcome as our Chairman for 2018, Colin Morphew [County President 2014].  Copies of the outdoor fixture list have gone out to members, our first game being at Seaford on Friday June 8th.  Please let me have your availability lists as soon as possible please.

We are looking to recruit players to add to our pool of pressed men to play for the association both indoors and outdoors.  We have around 13 games each year both indoors and out and almost all require 6 rinks.  Of the current past county presidents only a dozen or so are still bowling and for every game bar one we look to press players into playing.  We currently have around 15 regulars who support us but we would like to recruit a few more.

There is no joining fee to be an associate member.  The only criterion is that you may have or currently hold a position in your club or the county. 

Please contact the Secretary/ Treasurer direct to register your interest.  We look forward to you joining us.

Thank you for your nomination to become the Chairman for 2018/9 season.

Our recent AGM saw the retirement of Allan Hilton to whom we Past Presidents owe so much. Without his sole efforts on occasions, the Association would have failed. As has been said on many occasions and by many people, Allan has done all the jobs so well, ably supported by Sue. We all wish you a long and healthy “semi” retirement. Our retiring Chairman Don Kent has taken on the Secretary/Treasurer jobs vacated by Allan, I am sure you will all give him your full support. Whilst on the subject of support I would like apologise for the fact that on Monday or Friday matches I may not always be there, because of my duties as the County Division 3 VP Controller, sorry.

As Don stated last year we are a small number and at best only add 2 new past president’s each year so it is very difficult to maintain our numbers. Without the loyal support of our pressganged players it would be difficult to field a match team [at times this also includes ladies], so thank you all for your continued support. May I take this opportunity to thank our loyal band of lady supporters who come to watch us? Or is it to make sure we can find our way home after the match!

The Committee look forward to seeing you all on the “Green”


Colin Morphew,

Chairman 2018
