Bowls Jersey have this evening learnt the sad news of Peter Mavity’s passing. Those who have been involved with Bowls in Jersey would know the footprint he had on the game, and the hours of dedication and loyal service he provided over countless years.
A fine, skilled and successful bowler in his own right and a stalwart of St Brelades Bowls Club, Peter was always involved. Even in his last few years when his health had deteriorated to the point he couldn’t play bowls; he still wanted to help with the administration despite having formally retired from Committee some years before.
Bowls Jersey mourns the passing of a fine servant to the Sport, and, although it doesn’t anywhere repay the hours of toil Peter invested in the Sport, he was the first and sole Honorary Life Member of Bowls Jersey, an honour bestowed upon him at the AGM only in 2019.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult time. As a Bowling Community we wish to extend any offer of support that we are able.
Rest in Peace Peter, you will be missed dearly my friend.
