EUNICE Dockree has become Royston Bowls Club's first female ­president.

She takes over from ­outgoing president Colin Wilson.

Colin raised £1,880 for his chosen charity The British Heart Foundation, and Eunice will be hoping to raise a similar figure for the Milton Children's Hospice.

Colin said he was ­confident that Eunice would receive valued ­support from all ­members of the club.

Eunice's election is the latest in a line of historic moments for the club.

In 2006 Don Sheriff became the last president to be in office with an all- male committee.

And last year, the first season that the club was a fully integrated one, Colin became the first male president to be in office with a mixed committee.
