I feel so very privileged and honoured to be the President of the E.W.B.F. for 2017
Thank you to Derbyshire for nominating me and giving me this wonderful opportunity. I have enjoyed the last two years on the Presidential ladder and the good times had with Beryl and Daphne, I do hope I can follow in their footsteps. My best wishes go to Jean Phillips my deputy and also to Carole Swan the Junior Deputy.
Many congratulations go to Paul Bennett the President of the E.B.F.
I know the help and support I receive from my husband Arthur who chauffeurs me tirelessly wherever we go and I shall be visiting you all.

Congratulations to my predecessor Ken Barnes and EWBF President Daphne Meats for the way that they have carried out their year of office, they have been great mentors. I look forward to working with my deputy Trevor Harris of Derbyshire and welcoming junior deputy Mick Rayson of Huntingdonshire,
May I also congratulate Joan Mousley, Derbyshire on her appointment as President of the English Women’s Bowling Federation and her deputies Jean Phillips of Humberside and Carole Swan Norfolk. Best wishes for a happy and enjoyable year.

I hope to see as many of you as possible at our annual venues of Potters, National Indoor Championships Newark and the highlight of the year the National Outdoor Championships Skegness.
