Kathy Flood wrote to all Sussex County affiliated clubs:
“I am very pleased to let you know that the Michael Newth trophy for this year has been won by Marion Boswell, from Bexhill B.C.
This trophy is awarded annually to ‘a member who has given exceptional service to their club’.
Marion has been a member of Bexhill B.C. for 33 years, and has been nominated by the club for her inspirational work as Club Treasurer since 2005, qualified Coach since 2005, and as the County Delegate to Sussex County Bowls women’s section since 2002. In addition, she has carried out many other very important tasks in the club. Her loyalty and dedication are much appreciated, and it was felt by the Sussex Joint Management Committee, who consider nominations from clubs, that this award is richly deserved and justified.
