IMPORTANT MESSAGE 3

FROM SHEILA LEAKE HON  SECRETARY


This is to inform you that the meeting due to be held on the 11th September 2020 at Brockenhurst Bowling club is cancelled, as we would be unable to arrange a meeting that complies with Covid-19 regulations.  It’s with great regret that we have to cancel our Annual Luncheon, but hope you will all be able to attend in 2021.

 

The NFWBA constitution requires us to hold an Annual General Meeting in November each year.   No proposals have been received for this years AGM, nominations of the officers for the following year  are also made at this meeting.  All committee members have agreed to put themselves forward for re-election for next year, if you are in agreement with this or if any member of the Association would like to put themselves forward for a position please write or email the Secretary to include a proposer and a seconder from your club (the nominee must have agreed to stand).  

The nominations to reach the Secretary by Wednesday 23rd September 2020


In these unprecedented times, it is not possible to know yet whether we will be able to be physically hold our AGM, as regulations are changing every week.  We are hoping to be able to hold our AGM at South Lawn, if they are able to accommodate us.  Only the Secretary or her representative and the Executive Committee would be able to attend, as numbers will have to be limited to comply with Covid-19 regulations.  If the situation allows the committee has considered having a lunch at the same time, the cost would be £25.00 as extra costs would be incurred  to comply with C-19 regulations.  If you or your representative will be attending the AGM and if any of you would also be interested in having a lunch please let me know as soon as possible, in order for me to speak with South Lawn. ( The AGM would be followed by an optional lunch, if only a few ladies would like lunch it could be booked in the restaurant.)  

If we hold the AGM at South Lawn we will use the booking we have for Wednesday 21st October  2020 instead of the 6th November 2020.



IMPORTANT MESSAGE 2 FROM THE SECRETARY


In consultation with the executive committee, Pat Brockhurst, Noreen Jones and Bernie Tennant President of Lymington Bowling Club, I am writing to inform you that in line with Bowls England, Hampshire Bowls and the NFBA that our President Pat Brockhurst will defer her Presidency until 2021 and Noreen Jones until to 2022.


IMPORTANT MESSAGE 1 FROM THE SECRETARY

 


Your clubs will have received a statement from Bowls England released after their meeting on the 17th March 2020, it details the decisions made for the 2020 season.


Your executive committee have been in touch by e-mail and have made the following decision, to follow the guidance of Bowls England. We will therefore be cancelling all leagues and competition games for the 2020 season.  

The Treasurer has suggested rolling over the affiliation fees until next year if you are in agreement with an adjustment being made if any club is unable to field the same number of teams next year. You will receive a separate email from Jude Winterburn regarding competition entry fees.
