9th Aug.» John Webb and Les Ridgeon
We sadly have to report that John Webb of Lilley/Barton has passed away last Monday.

We are also sad to hear that Les Ridgeon of Renhold died in July.

Condolences to both families from the County.

15th Jul.» Dick Browning
Sadly Dick Browning passed away earlier this week, after just having just celebrated his 90th birthday.

Dick and his wife Dot had played for Cople prior to moving at Ravensden where they had both played for many years.

They had played an active roll in the club, Dick having been Chairman during this time.

28th Jun.» Peter Crump
We are sad to report that Jan Webbley has informed us her partner Peter passed away on 22nd June.

Peter will be missed by all his family and friends in the bowls community. He was a Maulden Carpet Bowls Club stalwart, their Captain, and competition secretary, he represented the county at Champion of Champion events, and will be missed at Bedfordshire's competitions.

The funeral will take place at Bedford Crematorium on 13th July 2021.

On a personal note, Peter was always the one to email a thank you to me after every competition, I truly appreciated the fact that he took the time to do that, and the day Maulden played in the Fours at the Eastern Counties Campion of Champions will be one I long remember, when they took two strong rinks from Cambs and Suffolk to the last end in each game. Happy bowling in the sky, sir!

18th Dec.» A Thank You From Gill
Gill (Whitfield) wishes to thank the many County bowls players – individuals and clubs – for their cards and for their kind (and sometimes amusing) words in remembrance of David.
He suffered greatly for many months, but is now at peace.

11th Nov.» David Whitfield
We are saddened to hear David passed away on Monday 9th November, after a long illness.
David was a huge part of Toddington and a very valued member of the County Squad and will be sadly missed.
We would like to send our condolences to Gill and her family at this difficult time. They are in our thoughts.
