As Ian's time as chairman comes to an end we should recognise his contributions to the club. Ian has been an inspirational force within the club for nearly a decade. In that time the Isle of Wight Indoor Bowls Club has become an excellent organisation for which he can take credit.
He has been prepared to listen to other people, encourage debate and contribute ideas. He has endeavoured to make the Board a cohesive force because without unity we are not a strong organisation. He has been approachable and has done it all with good humour. His ability to treat everyone with respect has endeared him to all. He has been an exceptional Chairman.
