Leaky roof and Wiltshire President

A PLAYER from Spencers  Bowls Club has become the president for Wiltshire Ladies Indoor Bowls and the leaky roof at Christie Miller continues to cause trouble.

Mick Over from Spencers Bowls Club reports, “It is with some pride that we announce that Eileen Hawker of Spencers Melksham bowls club and Christie Miller indoor bowls club, is to be president of Wiltshire ladies indoor bowls for 2017/18.

“Eileen has represented Spencers bowls club at many national finals outdoors. She has also represented Christy Miller I.B.C. at national finals on many occasions. As have many others, waving the Christie Miller flag to all parts of the country from Cornwall to Northumberland.

“Yet another local lady bowler is to represent Wiltshire County Bowls, with Dawn Edwards of Avon Bowls Club and Christie Miller indoor Bowls Club, becoming the lady President outdoors for 2017/2018.

“The above is part of the many reasons that bowls at the campus should be encouraged and the Council‘s should promote a six rink new venue in this locality.

“The Christie Miller bowls club had a leaky roof in 2012 and still has a leaky roof now (something different playing bowls round the buckets.) The leaks were given as a primary reason for the bowls to move to the Campus These leaks when rain falls sometimes cause games to be cancelled. Which is a loss of revenue to Christie Miller and very annoying to a lot bowlers who have travelled to Melksham only to be told there game has been cancelled.

“Christie Miller bowlers would like to acknowledge the comments from Ian and Jill Cardy (£28,000 income per annum, what other section provides this income for minimal outlay).

“Also a very interesting letter from Martin Pain Regarding the cost and accountability of the market place upgrade. This was not the plan on day one, the Bowls venue was.”
