Last chance to get involved in new association

There’s just 24 hours left for bowlers to get involved with the new body that is about to be born in Shropshire.


Tomorrow is the deadline for nominations for the new committee that will become the North Shropshire Veterans Crown Green Bowling Association.

Being formed to run the Barlows Whitchurch Over-60s and Market Drayton Senior Citizens leagues, the single administration will be launched at a joint AGM and EGM on Tuesday, March 5, at Tilstock BC (2pm).

It is hoped to attract nominations from both leagues in a move that follows the uniting of the Whitchuch and Drayton evening leagues under the North Shropshire Crown Green Bowling Association.

The joint admin approach is seen as the best way to solve the problem of very few people being prepared these days to stand for office to run leagues.
