After four years as District Secretary, Angela Little (below, left) has stepped down from the role and Loyce Davis (at right, below) has been appointed to fill the “casual vacancy”. Angela had made known that she wouldn’t seek re-election this year; however, with the Covid-19 restrictions casting doubt on whether the District AGM can go ahead as scheduled on 27 July, Angela has elected to step out of the role now, to give her prospective successor time to settle in while we’re (patiently?) waiting for organised bowls to resume. Angela has done an outstanding job in this very demanding role, and has kept us on track during some challenging times. Although most members will have to wait for weeks or months to be able to thank Angela in person, President Julie has visited Angela from an “appropriate social distance” to present her with a lovely floral “thank-you” on behalf of us all.
Meanwhile Loyce Davis, from Mosman WBC, has been appointed as District Secretary and intends nominating for the position when the AGM comes around. Loyce is no stranger to administration, having spent her working life as Executive/Personal Assistant to Professors and Heads of the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of NSW. Before taking up bowls, she played A-Grade netball, served on the Executive Committee of the Northern Suburbs Netball Association, was elected to the Netball NSW Board where she was Minute Secretary, and was on the Netball NSW Umpires Committee. Loyce is currently Chair of Match at Mosman and will continue in that position.
