Cheshire County Bowling Association intends to be at the forefront of this iniative by organising Safeguard Training for all of our affiliated clubs. Every club needs to comply with this Safeguarding rule by 1st March 2019 and Cheshire County Bowling Association led by our Safeguarding Officer Yvette Gregory will offering support to each and every club.

Forward from the President
Happy New Year to all our bowlers and families for the 2018 season.
As we move into my second and final year as President, I would like to reflect on just how well we did as a County last year. We have going forward, Senior teams in the running for the World Club Championships, our Junior side continues to develop and flourish and the set up has been widened to give our bowlers more experience and to enable our players to stay competitive longer.
We as a County were involved in the running of a Bowlathon to raise funds for the MNDA. We set a target of £10k and I am pleased to announce that we smashed it. The total now stands at £33K. Plans are being developed to hold another different event again this year, to be held at Owley Wood BC. The format will be very different so watch this space.
On a personal note I feel I didn’t quite fulfil my promise of visiting all clubs, I did manage 97 so this year I will try and visit the remainder. The Bowlathon did take up a large part of my time. This year we have a larger committee on board, so i will be able to take a smaller role.
May I take this opportunity to wish each Player and Club, all the very best for the season.

Steve Cook.
Cheshire County President
