Cynthia has worked tirelessly for Hampshire County for over 20 years initially as Secretary of Hampshire County Women's Bowling Association and then following unification in 2010 as Assistant Secretary of Bowls Hampshire


Cynthia has a wealth of knowledge which will be hard to replace and I know I speak on behalf of all our bowlers both past and present when I thank Cynthia for all her dedication and hard work on behalf of the County but also at a National level when she worked on the archiving steering committee for Bowls England

2021 Competitions

During the past few days Bowls England have been in consultation with all County Associations regarding the playing of competitive bowls during the coming season. Various timescales and options have been discussed and they have indicated that they will be updating counties by 22 March at the latest as to the guidelines and schedule for 2021


On receipt of this information we will, as an association, be able to review all playing arrangements and then publish all County draws and dates. It is  hoped that we will be able to complete all our competitions in 2021 but we are like everyone dependent on Government and Bowls England guidelines
