2019 is the 90th anniversary year for Merrow Village Bowls Club. To help get this special year off to a flying start, our local MP Anne Milton came to formally inaugurate the season.
Anne was welcomed by our president David Matthews, chairman Brian Taylor, and two representatives from the parent club committee, Mike Eagle, and Jim Drey. After a brief introduction by president David Matthews, Anne made a short speech, extolling the virtues of community organisations such as our club, providing sporting and social activities. Following the speeches, Anne took on the challenge of trying her hand at bowls, with our coach David giving some advice.
After the speeches, there was an opportunity for some photos with the club members before Anne cut a special anniversary cake, baked and decorated by Debbie. Anne took this opportunity to speak to several club members before leaving.
