You are probably aware that the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) have replaced CRB checks.

If your CRB needs renewing you must still contact the County Counter Signatory (Barry Jennings) who will complete the form with you.

When you receive your certificate you must take the original to the Counter signatory (who needs to see the date of issue and your unique number) within 7 days.

Failure to do this will result in you being unable to continue in the role you were checked for, this will also affect activities in your club/ league or County.

Next year (2014) over 120 DBS are due. Please check your certificate. It can take months to clear so please do not leave it to the last minute.

Contact Barry Jennings: 01743 351155

Long and short of it



Now only £5.00

As histories on local sporting organisations go, this is a very superior production, evidence of the time, professionalism and, not least, money that has gone into this book marking the centenary of the Shropshire Crown Green Bowling Association. The aim was to produce a quality book, and the association has certainly done that. It even has that glossy quality book smell, if you can have such a thing.

Once the decision was taken to go ahead with the project, the challenge was to raise the £7,000 or so for design and printing, Leagues and clubs affiliated to the association were asked if they could each make a contribution of at least £20.12 - a symbolically significant figure in this centenary year - and the appeal met with a generous response.

The project team comprised former Shropshire Star journalist Malcolm Fletcher, who is now secretary of the Mid Shropshire League, and past association presidents Jeff Hutchinson and Terry Sambrook.

Copies for sale are available either direct from Malcolm on 01952 771134 or Terry on 01743 358776, and will be available at all major county bowling events for the rest of the year. It would have been easy to do the book as a simple chronology, and the result would have been worthy, if rather unimaginative. Instead, the story has been told in lively fashion, picking out highlights, interesting facts, and spotlighting key personalities and events. On the persnalities front, the towering figure is that of Dick Meyrick (1915-1998), who became known as "Mister Bowls" and the book poses the question of whether he was the greatest crown green bowler ever.

Packed with both black and white and colour photos, the book will be a feast for anybody interested in Shropshire bowling, and is a fitting memento and souvenir of 100 unbroken years of the association.
