Many congratulations to Cameron White for winning the Under 18 Welsh Triples (again), to big sister Ysie for winning the Welsh Ladies Rinks Championship and playing for both the Under 25 and senior Welsh Ladies teams and finally for John Roberts being selected once again for the Welsh Men's team.
The start of another season. Club President John Baggott send down the silver jack in front of onlooking crowd.
Bert became a member of the Tenby Bowling Club in the early 1980s, and in his first full year as a member was voted onto the management committee. He immediately began to immerse himself in the business and running of the club, as well as training to become a most proficient bowler (writes Lewis Hilling). Apart from his family, from that time he almost lived for the Bowling Club.ustee of the club. He captained both the first and second teams during his playing years.
In 1992, he was elected president of the Pembrokeshire County Bowling No job was too menial, no job was too big. He went on to hold the four main offices in the club, president, chairman, secretary and treasurer. He was also a director of Tenby Bowling Club Ltd, and a tr Association, a post he filled with honour; he was also a national umpire and coach. For his tremendous record of zeal and service to the club, Bert was made a life member, an honour richly deserved.
In 2009, Bert took it upon himself t o produce a book entitled, An Historic Record of Achievements and Events of Tenby Bowling Club. The tremendous amount of research and documentation needed to produce this history, only Bert would have the tenacity needed to achieve it, “and I was privileged to be asked to write the foreword.”
I would need at least a full page of this newspaper to tell of all Bert did for the benefit of the Tenby Bowling Club.
He will be sorely missed by the members of his beloved Bowling Club, but he will be long remembered.
