Dear Members, apologies, its been a while since the last update, but unfortunately as you are all aware there continues to be some restrictions on the use of the green and facilities.
 
I am delighted to report that to date 24 members have taken up the opportunity for social play on the green during the past weeks with some weeks busier than others. They all report that the procedure before and after play is common sense and should not put anyone off.
 
Bowls England have amended the guidelines of play to ensure social distancing can be maintained. and now allow all rinks to be used at the same time if pairs and triples are being played, but advise the use of alternate rinks if teams of 4 are playing. So please call up your friends and arrange small groups to get together for an hour or two, while we still can, during the remaining weeks of the outdoor season. The full guidance document has been printed and available in the foyer of the club if anyone is interested.
 
Don’t forget to nominate someone from your group to call Maureen to book a rink, so that we can:
• Ensure we adhere to the guidelines regarding numbers on a rink,
• Ensure the green and rinks are used evenly
• For that important “Track and Trace”
 
We as a committee with Flo and Bob, are currently looking into what is needed for “Short mat bowls” to be able to be played safely during the winter so watch this space for more details as it becomes available.
 
Friday night socials (members and social members only) are being enjoyed by on average 15 -20 people weekly, but we could seat up to 30, so if you are looking for a safe venue to meet up with your fellow bowls club members come along and be sure of a friendly welcome.
 
 
Best wishes
Maureen and the Committee.
