HESKETH ARMS NEWSLETTER – FEBRUARY 2018
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Many thanks to all those who attended the Club’s AGM, held on Monday at the Churchtown Conservative Club. We are grateful to the Conservative Club for allowing us to use their excellent facilities.
At the meeting, the Chairman, Chris Harding, congratulated Sue Davies on being the newly elected President for the 2018 season. Sue has been captain of our team in the Maghull League on a Monday evening for the past two seasons, which has given our lady members the opportunity to play league bowls at the Hesketh Arms for the first time in the Club’s history. We hope that Sue enjoys her time as Club President.
