Welcome to Warwickshire Women's Bowling Association
As I take over the baton I wish you a very warm welcome to the 2017 season with me, Chris Ward, leading the troops – in the right direction, I hope! I wish you all good health and happy bowling.
Di Green has done a gallant job organising the County comps for 2017 and you can now view the draw on line. She has had quite a task on her hands – Bowls England are using some of the rinks at the same time as our County comps, thus making her short of rinks. She has done her very best to accommodate everyone, but if you have any worries, please speak to her, or me, and we will do our level best to sort out any problems you may have.
My charity is “Myton at Home”, chosen because of the care and kindness a very close friend of mine received during his illness, enabling him to be at home with his wife and family.
I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year and look forward to being with you all during 2017.
Guide DogTammy Faces the Camera
This is to keep you abreast of developments with last Year’s President’s 'Name a Puppy' Account where all of the money raised during the season was deposited. As over £2,500 was raised Di was able to put forward three names for a puppy. These were - Tammy (in memory of Di’s own dog), Mac (in memory of her father) and Woody (with a bowling theme).
Di was over the moon when she recently received a letter from Guide Dogs for the Blind announcing the arrival into the world of Tammy on 12 November 2016 (along with her 9 siblings), a copy of Tammy’s birth certificate recognising the sponsorship by Warwickshire Women's Bowling Association and this photograph showing her aged 7 weeks. I‘m sure you will agree that she is just adorable.
Tammy is 3 months old and has been with her puppy walker and their family for 6 weeks and she is happy and settled in her new home.
She has been introduced to a lead and collar and taken for gentle walks, which she loves. She has met plenty of people and is getting used to the sights and sounds of the big wide world. Her inoculations are nearly completed and she has enjoyed trips in the family car.
She is making good progress with house training…but sometimes has had the odd accident. However, her Puppy Walker is very patient and gives her lots of praise when she ‘performs’ in the garden and Tammy has been quick to learn the ‘busy’ command.
Over the coming year we will keep you updated with Tammy’s progress, so watch this space…..
