I am saddened to have to report the death of two bowlers, John Gardner and Bob Smith, who both contributed a good deal to their respective Clubs. John was a member of Starcross & District B.C. and served as Men’s Captain from 2006-8 and again in 2015. He was Chairman of the Club from 2009-2015 and President in 2016 and 2017. Also, in 2009, John served as President of the Mid Devon Bowling League. Bob was a member of Phear Park B.C. He was fully involved with the Club, acting as Treasurer for over 12 years, being a Club Trustee, one of the Club Coaches, a Selector, past Captain and carried out a lot of the Club maintenance. Both will be sadly missed by their Clubs and our thoughts are with their families and friends at this sad time.
