NEW CHAIRPERSON

The Board of DBE have pleasure in announcing the appointment of a new Chairperson, Steve Watson…

A message from our new Chairperson Steve Watson.

I am very honoured and proud to be the new Chairperson for Disability Bowls England Charity Trust. I am looking forward to working together with the board of DBE during these difficult times and also to meeting everyone again when safe to do so.

As we promote and move DBE in the right direction as the organisation continues to grow at pace, we will all need to be creative in our thinking as we adapt to new ways to steady the ship for “Our New World” after lockdown.

I would like to thank Paul Brown who for the past 6 years, has been the driving force behind DBE, showcasing it to a much wider world audience and has set very high standards for me to follow and maintain.

Lawn Bowls is truly “A Sport for All”

Steve Watson.
