I have been asked to post this statement from the Management Committee of the Huddersfield & District Veterans Bowling Association.
Statement from Huddersfield & District Veterans Bowling Association
The Management Committee wish to express their gratitude to Allan Dobson as he resigns as Acting President of our association. Allan was elected Vice President at the February AGM but stepped into the breach as Acting President following the death of John Hoyle. As if that wasn’t a difficult act to follow he’s also had to manage a very difficult period due to the coronavirus with meetings being conducted by conference calls.
Throughout this very trying period he has acted with authority and dignity and given the writer steadfast support. Resigning is a difficult and personal decision to make and we thank him for his contribution and wish him well.
The HDVBA has been a well-run association for many years and there is plenty of experience on the management committee to ensure that continues. Plans for leagues and competitions for 2021 are already well advanced. That’s not to say that we wouldn’t welcome some new blood on the committee filling the vital roles of President, Vice President and League Secretary.
