Our Gateshead

End Of Another Season

As another season now draws to a close I would like to thank all clubs for their co-operation during the season.

     This has been a very good season for the NORTHUMBERLAD & DURHAM BOWLING ASSOCIATION,

and I would like to thank Graham Lones (Competition Secretary) for his expertise in running the leagues and cup competitions.

I would also like to thank Mrs Val Jennings (N.D. Treasurer) for her skills with the finances and helping with the upkeep of our trophies that are on display at SALTWELL TOWERS  within Saltwell  Park Gateshead  and also many thanks to the rest of the committee for there support.

Unfortunately the Chairman  Mr P.H. Proctor who has been our chairman for over 30years has informed me that he has now decided (for family resones) to stand down from his position.

Percy is a well known and respected person who has guided our association over many years in his position as N.D. Chairman and I am sure not only will the N.D. Committee miss him for his wisdom but all clubs and members will also.

ON BEHALF OF THE SSSOCIATION we wish Percy, his wife Joyce and the rest of his family good health and best wishes.

Our current President Mr D. Simpson this year has done the association proud attending all of the association  competitions semi finals and finals and done a great job presenting  the trophies to the winners.

Many thanks from the N.D. committee.

As  winners of the COWEN CUP 2012 Barley Mow B.C. will have the honour of nominating the N.D. President for 2013


At this present time the N.D. committee is working to put together the agenda for our A.G.M. to be held on Wednesday 14th November 2012 (7-00pm) at the R.A.F.A. Social Club Bewick Road Gateshead.

Congratulations to all club winners of our various competitions and I am pleased to say all finals were well supported and played to a very high standard.

Many thanks also go to Dunston B.C. Ravensworth B.C. Glen Park B.C for there allowing us the use of bowling greens for the various semi/finals and finals and hospitality.

Well thats it for another season and I hope to see you all Next season.

Best wishes to all and once again from the N.D. committee thank-you for your support.
