Letter of Thanks


The 2021 Outdoor season has now come to an end bit of a problem to start with but we got there eventually. I would like to thank all Umpires and Markers on Area 5 Glos;/Bristol for their help and much appreciated cooperation through the season my thanks to you all.

On the 9th September we payed tribute in a Memorial Bowls Game to our Late Umpire Mike Mann's between Umpires/Markers and Somerset Police making up the Team with Barnwood Players. The Game was played at Barnwood BC, unfortunately the rain stopped play at 12 End,  an excellent Buffet was put on by Wendy Mike's Wife and his Daughter we gave him a great day.

Mike's Brother Ken asked me to organise this Game. I think it went off well.

Mike will always be in our thoughts, once again thank you all.
