Great honour for Gerard and Anne

 Gerard ThomasMr Gerard Thomas was County President of Pembrokeshire in 2000 and later became the Welsh Bowling Association President in 2014. He was nominated by the Welsh Bowling Association for the post of President of the British Isles Bowls Council and was inaugurated on the 10th March 2018. He becomes the first man to hold this prestigious post from Pembrokeshire and not only does he bring great honour to Pembroke Dock Bowling Club but to the whole of Pembrokeshire bowls as well.
The British Isles Bowls Council was formed in 1963 by England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales and in 1995 Guernsey and Jersey – known as the Channel Islands – joined them.
The object of the council is to promote, foster and safeguard the game of level green outdoor bowls. The council also organises, controls and finances the British Isles International matches and the British Isles Championship.
