Very sad news . . .

It is with great regret that I have to report the death of our league president, RAY BUTLER. He sadly passed away in Telford Hospital on Thursday, December 15, at 2pm - just as his loyal bowls companion of recent years, Colin Rudrum, was arriving from Newport for a visit.
Ray served the league in many, many ways, most recently as general secretary before succeeding his good friend, the late John Jones, as league president in January 2011.
He was well respected and liked throughout the whole of the Shropshire bowls scene and had many friends on the county executive, which he also served on as a valued delegate. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
RIP Ray . . .
