Edinburgh & Leith BA-Statement of Common Purpose

Edinburgh & Leith BA would like to take this opportunity to inform our member clubs of our current working partnership with the Edinburgh Bowling League for the common purpose of merging both Associations into one governing body for Edinburgh bowling.

In November 2019, both organisations met and were unanimous in agreement that the time was now right to draw on our experience, resources, commitment and passion for our individual organisations and merge these into one governing body for the benefit of our member clubs and the future of bowling in Edinburgh.

We believe that united under one banner, we will be stronger, better coordinated, more resourceful and financially secure to ensure the continued and future development of bowling in Edinburgh.

This process is now underway and we will endeavour to ensure that you, our member clubs are kept up to date with the progress.

As you can imagine this will not be an overnight change. Both Committees are in agreement that we need to ensure that the merge is completed competently and to the highest organised level.

To start, we have agreed that as of now, we will combine our monthly Committee meetings to allow us to share our understandings and develope our actions to progress.

We hope that we can if and when needed, rely on you our member clubs to assist and support us throughout this new and exciting period of development.

It was agreed at the November meeting, Edinburgh & Leith BA will not be seeking any new members for Committee in 2020.

Thank you. Edinburgh & Leith BA
