News has just reached us of the passing away of Paul Skidmore, President of the West Witney club.
A stalwart of the West Witney club, he had previously served them as Secretary and as club captain. He was very well known throughout the county as a talented bowler on the competitive scene and was also a current member of the Middleton squad that enjoyed success in their section last year.
Like all competitive bowlers qualification for the National Championships was his dream, which came true last year in the Pairs when he reached the County finals with Nigel Siford.
Paul was a pleasure to bowl with as I found out as a member of his rink in the Home Counties.
He will be sadly missed by many, his fellow club members and those of us who remember his greeting which was always accompanied by a smile and the expectancy that we were in for a hard game.
Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go to his wife Helen and their family.
