Buckley Park Bowls Club: season opening
On Sunday, 26 August 2012, I had the pleasure of attending the opening day for season 2012-13 of the Buckley Park Bowls Club. Chairman Keith Gibbs and the board of management put on a wonderful lunch in celebration and anticipation of the oncoming bowls season.
The presentations to longstanding club members Bernie Drakeford and Bap Gasparini for their committed service to the club were a highlight of the lunch. The Buckley Park Bowls Club is going from strength to strength, and will only get stronger when later this year lights are installed on the aptly named Bernie Drakeford green.
I thank chairman Keith Gibbs, deputy chairs Kevin Cromie and Alan Renton, and secretary John Taylor for their hospitality last Saturday, and I wish the Buckley Park Bowls Cub every success for season 2012-13.
