On a sad day for the lawn bowls community today we learn of the passing of one of the true gentlemen of the game. Greg Thurling sadly passed last night. He has touched the hearts of many with his ongoing courage and passion for our game.
Many of us who have had the pleasure of playing with or against Greg, would know just how kind hearted he was. His words of encouragement to me personally as a new bowler will forever stay with me. Greg battle with chronic myeloid leukaemia since 2001 and sadly passed last night.
He will be truly missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with Greg’s family & friends in this sad time. May he Rest in Peace.
