Coronavirus Update-CLUB CLOSURE

At an emergency Board / Bowls Committee meeting held today- Monday 16th March, we have taken the very difficult decision to close the club from 12.30pm today- Monday 16th March for the remainder of the Winter Indoor Season.
This includes all roll ups, leagues, competitions, friendly matches and Coaching/taster sessions.
The club will not be open for any social functions, this is a complete closure.
We will assess the Summer season and update members ASAP.
This decision has not been taken lightly, but it has been decided that it is in the best interests of our members, we also feel this ties in with a number of other clubs.

If members wish to collect any personal belongings, then the club will be open as follows: –

Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm (week 16th March only)

We apologise for any inconvenience that this causes but feel, in these exceptional circumstances, the priority is the welfare of our members, many of which are in the high risk category.
All remaining league games will be frozen with the League Secretary to review. This will then produce final league tables for the season. We appreciate that this brings an unsatisfactory ending to the season but feel member welfare must be paramount in this situation.
Club competitions are to be frozen at their current state and the aim will be to complete these early in the new season, this includes the remaining semi and finals to be played.
We understand that there will be many questions which we will try to deal with in a timely manner.
Please ensure that all questions are emailed to the following address-

We would be grateful if you could pass this message on to any other members that you know who are not on email or facebook or have access to the website.
