NEW CHAIRMAN FOR THE WWBA
NEW CHAIRMAN FOR THE WWBA

Bob Alderdice, who has been Chairman of the WWBA for the last five years, and who was Treasurer for three years before that, handed over the Chair to Gareth Jones at the AGM of the WWBA on 8th May. Bob has been an enthusiastic and innovative Chairman during his time of office.  The Teams League and the Celtic Congress have been two of his  most notable achievements and he has been a real inspiration to the Area. In Gareth we will have an able successor and we wish him all the best in his new post.
