SOME ACTIVITIES ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED & WILL DEPEND ON Cov -19 SITUATION BEFORE RECOMMENCING.
Sadly, John Gamblin one of the key members at Dereham Indoor Bowls passed away following a short illness, on Tuesday 2nd February 2021.
John will be sorely missed at Dereham Indoor Bowls, Norfolk County Indoor Bowls and Norfolk County Outdoor Bowls. John had an enviable reputation across the County of being a very capable bowler. I have been fortunate to play in the same block as John in lots of county indoor and outdoor matches. He knew the game very well and when John was your Skip, you knew that there was a very good chance of winning the game.
Last season John took on a number of major roles at DIBC. He was ‘A’ Team Captain, he was also DIBC Web Master and additionally, he was also a key DIBC Facebook Administrator. He took these roles very seriously and despite the Covid-19 situation, he did a great job. John also offered his tuition, help and assistance to all bowlers. His great wealth of bowling experience was readily shared with anyone that had an interest in improving their game. He will be really missed.
Our sincere condolences and loving thoughts go out to John’s wife, family and friends at this very trying time.
FRIENDLY ROLL UPS normally take place all year.
They are available most weeks throughout the year, however there will one or two occasions when roll ups are not offered owing to County or other important matches taking place.
Recently changes have been necessary owing to Covid-19 restrictions. Hopefully we will be returning to 'normal' sometime in 2021.
