John Harrison - Chairman

I joined Cramlington Bowling Club in 2013 a couple of years after I retired, I was appointed Club Treasurer in 2014 and  from 2019 I have taken on the role of President of the Club. My regret is that I didn’t take up bowls more seriously earlier in life despite a brief flirtation with the game in my twenties.

I enjoy bowling in both local and County Leagues and can thoroughly recommend bowling to everyone both young or old regardless of ability.

I joined the club about 27 years ago and have been on the committee for many of those years. I was made club president and then more recently took over as Club Secretary.

I was appointed Northumberland CBA Junior Vice President in 2000 and became NCBA President in 2002. As such I was a member of Northumberland General Purposes Committee on which I served until December 2017.

I am the only member of Cramlington Bowling Club to be a County President and I believe I am the only NCBA President from Blyth Valley.

To contact Bill directly please call 01670 712627.

I joined Cramlington Bowls Club after being retired for 4 years and was invited to become a committee member in 2017. I enjoy the competitive side of league bowls but also take great pleasure in playing in the relaxed atmosphere of the Jumbles. Since joining the club, I have made many new friends and enjoy the camaraderie with other members. I wish I had taken up this hobby earlier in life.

To contact Brian direct please call 01670 712574.
