VPBC Chairman’s Newsletter – January 2018

Dear VPBC Member

Please put in your diary the Club’s 119th Annual General Meeting at Emmanuel,Church, Cambridge Rd, Southport on Saturday 24th February. Come at 12.45pm for a tea, coffee and chat before the 1.30 start.  The formal Agenda and the papers will be issued to you shortly.

Subscriptions remain at £45 (for 4th year) and can be paid before or after the AGM. Our 3 Ladies and 7 Men’s Team sign up sheets will be out in tables at the back. A copy of the AGM papers will be in every seat.

The Secretary’s Report, Treasurer’s Report and Committee elections are on the agenda together with short a presentation on our revamped pavilion. It’s a truly fantastic D I Y project that will surely improve the VPBC experience and attract new members.
The Pavilion changes have made it impossible to retain our historic honours boards. The information has been updated to include the winners from 1966 onward and it is already on our website.
A new consolidated version from 1990 onward of the honours board for the Pavilion has been proposed and will be shown at the AGM for your views.
There will of course also be time for you to have your say – ideas, suggestions and questions expected and welcome.
We will also present the 2018 Club Programme which we hope will have something for everyone every day.
We have a car park and two greens so you can play mornings, afternoons and evenings 7 days a week – even when a league match is underway on one green.
Informal social bowling or practice – you choose  You can be as busy as you like.
Winter Bowling is already happening with Round Robins on a Tuesday and we plan to reopen the main green with an Easter Monday (2 April) special event  All will be explained at the AGM.
Please help to recruit new members. Our £30 new member offer is a great deal and has helped us maintain our numbers. Do try to bring along friends, family and neighbours along. Bowls really is great, if gentle, exercise, suitable for everyone and truly great value.
