A tribute to Lloyd Bowen

Words by John Shedden

I was sad to report to this year’s AGM that one of our previous Presidents had passed away on the 22nd February this year 2018. 

Bryan Lloyd Bowen was President of ESC in the mid nineteen eighties, which were both turbulent and exciting times in the development of snowsports in England and the UK.  As we no longer have Presidents, his equivalent role today would be as Chairman of the Board of SSE.
