Presidents Message


Sue Thurlow, President 2018

Sue Thurlow, President PBBC 2018



Thank you for electing me to be your President for the 2018 season.

It is a huge honour and a great privilege to be only the 4th Lady President in our Club's history.

Our club continues to go from strength to strength with a reputation within the County,of which we can all be very proud. This is due to the dedication and hard work of an army of volunteers - the many Members who give so generously of their time; the Green and Maintenance teams, our Coaches, the Catering ladies and the Bar men, not forgetting the Club Officers and Trustees.

A huge thank you one and all.

I would particularly like to extend a warm welcome to our new members and would encourage you all to take part in competitions, such as the
Malc for 
ladies and the Catchpole for men, both of which take place on a Monday - and the friendly fixtures too with other clubs.

Following a great tradition, the elected President during their term of office support a charity of their choice, my charity is The Headway Brain and Injury Association, who are passionate about improving life after
brain injury.


Headway's mission is: To promote understanding of all aspects of brain injury and provide
information, support 
and services to survivors, their  families and carers. 
In addition, Headway 
will campaign to 
reduce the incidence of brain injury.

The Presidential Chain of Office

Beautifully crafted in fine polished gold coloured metal, the
pendant shows in fine detail the engraved enamelled replica of
the Potters Bar Bowls Club's emblem, depicting the coat of arms
of Hertfordshire.

The Presidential Chain of Office contains the names of 29 elected Presidents since 1983, their names being engraved with their year of office. Presently archives are being sought to establish the predecessor of this Chain of Office and bring to light the existence of the original. Photographic reference of Past Presidents dating back to 1936, exist in the Club House.
