Thank You Rosemary & Sue

Sue Long and Rosemary Bradbury receive Christmas presents from members of the Friday afternoon Short Mat bowls group as a token of their thanks for running the bowling and the mid-session tea & biscuits! Thank you!! 

Defib Training

Huge thanks to Martin Hambling from Star Care Medical Professionals for an excellent demonstration on how to respond in case of cardiac arrest. His lighthearted yet clear and expert approach will without doubt have helped members present to be more confident in delivering this critical first aid to a fellow citizen in their time of need.

 

A refresher on CPR was also very well received… I had forgotten exactly where to apply pressure, and most importantly just how much pressure to apply in order to give effective resuscitation.

 

Thanks also to club member Jo for organising and taking on guardianship of the DBC defibrillator and thank you to those members of our club who came along to receive this vital training.

Annual Bowls Meeting

The morning of Saturday 5th November, following the usual coffee morning, was the annual bowls meeting convened at this time every year by the bowls committee. Reports were made by the secretary and the retiring captains and this was followed by the annual presentation of the captain’s and vice captains badges.

Both Tom Mullins and Alison Cross expressed their thanks to all the members who had supported them during the year and especially those who had supported the organised social and team events to raise funds for the motor neurone disease reaching the grand total or £3500.

The new captains Mike Mitcham and Julie Romijn announced that they had asked Kelvin Nash and Lynn Hicks to be their vice captain’s and had together decided that their charity for this year would be the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

The meeting, through the chair, wished them both the very best of luck and success.
