1st Coffee Morning of 2022

Dear Colleagues.

Firstly, at the recent GBA Joint Executive Committee meeting, on 13 November 2021, the matter of club and County ‘Codes of Conduct ‘ was again discussed.  Resulting from this consideration, I now attach two documents :
1.     The new ‘Gloucestershire Bowls Association (GBA) Code of Conduct’, which your club members must please have passed to them and to which they must abide by at all times, as also members of the GBA.  Please display this on your notice board and circulate it around your club members.

2.     A draft ‘Club Code of Conduct’, unsurprisingly similar to the previous document, which we would earnestly ask that your club use as a model (unless you already have such a Code).  This should obviously be titled as necessary for your own club, but then appropriately adopted by your Club Committee.  Plus then displayed and circulated within your club.
Please note that though Social Media is not explicitly referred to, several of the points in the ‘Codes’ can relate  directly to this mode of communication.
Thank you.  If you have any questions on the Codes, please contact David Rolls (email in GBA Club Handbook) or myself.

Secondly, I am pleased to announce that the new Churchdown Village Bowling Club have successfully applied to become affiliated to the GBA, as of today, and effectively as of the 2022 season.  The Club Secretary is Barbara Baker,  07703 648497, but their full contact details will obviously be in the 2022 GBA Club Handbook.

Best wishes,
County Administrator
GBA Code of Conduct.
My brother has sent an email of thanks. I know I tried to thank as many people as I could yesterday. Please do pass on our appreciation and thanks, we were so very touched by everyone’s kind thoughts and generosity. I would like to again thank everyone and especially a very big thank you to the ladies who prepared the food for the occasion. It was so lovely to see how dad (Tom) was so well thought of.

Much gratitude.

Isabel Hubbard.

Just a few words to say thanks very much to the Bowls Club for the Guard of Honour and the fine turn out at dad's funeral and also for the fine spread of food and drink at the club after the funeral.
It was much appreciated, and a fitting tribute to dad.

Regards Ian
