Ray Ollis (Past President)

We regret to report the death of Ray Ollis on June 2nd. Ray was President of B&DBA in the Association's centenary year, 2006 and, therefore, played a leading part in organising commemorative events held that season. He also served as the association's match secretary in 2007. He always loyally supported the B&D and was a regular at its functions. Ray was formerly a member of Lymington and Ringwood Bowling Clubs and latterly of Braeside BC.

Ray's wife, Jenny, advises us that all are welcome to attend the funeral which is at 10.30am on Wednesday 13 June at Bournemouth Crematorium followed by a reception at South Lawns Hotel, Milford on Sea.
