On 27th June we celebrated the retirement of our Chairman Mr Jim Bishop after 34 years working at BAWA Healthcare and Leisure.

Jim had been employed by Rolls-Royce since 1974 and had worked at BAWA Healthcare Leisure since 1984, working in the Old Pavilion.

Jim became Chairman in 2006, with an aim to continue and develop facilities for members and customers.

Things have certainly changed during his time, including a new pavilion, many refurbishments and the introduction of the Prize Draw. During his Chairmanship we achieved the Club Awards in 2009 and celebrated 70 years of BAWA.
