Presidents Message 2022

 

President Steve Hipperson 2022


First of all I would like to say how pleased I am to take over the chain of office as your President for 2022, yes, 2022 already and with a fair wind and a little luck we will enjoy this season without too many restrictions.
Covid will be with us for the foreseeable future but hopefully we will be able to move on with the new normality and embrace it as we go into a new era in our already long and eventful lives.
The last two years have been like no others in our lifetime and I must commend our management committee, green team, maintenance team and of course, you, our membership, for your perseverance, fortitude and good humour during this time.
My charity this year will be HEADWAY HERTS. HEADWAY provides support, advice and treatment for those unfortunate enough to need help following an acquired brain injury (not being born with one) and work throughout Hertfordshire. Your usual generous support will be much appreciated.
The new season brings more challenges to our wonderful club and I would ask all members, new and old, to support our two great and popular captains, Susie Thurlow and Mick Brennan, in making sure we field full teams to complete our excellent bowling program for the year. Looking ahead my President’s Day is on Saturday, 20th August, a must attend date for your diaries when I hope you will all support the day in aid of my charity.
I wish you all a most enjoyable and successful season and look forward to seeing you all on the green at some time.

 

 

Kind Regards Steve Hipperson

President 2022
