Ronnie is still doing the cricket scoring after 43 years at Shipston Cricket Club. That's 400+ league games and some of the players are grandsons of the players we first met in 1970!

She was last year's Warwickshire Womens indoor Bowls President during a wonderful year of over 20 matches. She still plays bowls at the Norgren (outdoors).

She was delighted to be asked to be President of the Shipston Racing Pigeon Club, taking over from Tony Beard who was the First President when the club was formed in 1972/3.

Ronnie wants to be involved in as many organisations as possible this year so please contact her using the details below and invite her to any of your events!
