The Batch Country House Hotel was again full to capacity when 327 Somerset bowlers and their guests assembled for the 2018 SBA Presentation Lunch.  After a superb meal we were addressed by Somerset Presidents Paul and Hilary, and the principal guest – Viv Tomlinson, the Immediate Past President of Bowls England.  After expressing her delight at being able to join Somerset on such a glittering occasion, Viv gave her thoughts on some of the issues surrounding the development of our sport, as well as congratulating the Somerset competitors, and explaining her approach to bowls, life, and everything!  Presidents Hilary and Paul handed cheques to the representatives of their chosen charities, following which the competition and championship winners were presented with their awards and trophies by Viv and our Presidents.  Our featured photo (courtesy of Dave Byett – JVP)  shows Presidents Hilary and Paul admiring the splendid show of silverware and awards, before the Presentation commenced.  Many congratulations to the staff at the Batch Hotel, to Don Bridges, our brilliant event organiser (ably assisted by Mrs Bridges), Brian Pocock, SBA Competitions Manager and all those who helped with this outstanding event.
