Notice to members
The government has agreed a limited return to the playing of bowls. It is indicated that further easing of these restriction can be hoped for shortly if these initial measures work.
We plan on the green being available from Monday 18th May under the following rules
All leagues and external competitions have been cancelled for this year. We will have to see how matters progress for the Club competitions.
1/ Members only, this is vital.
2/ Members cannot go into the Club or use the toilets.
3/ Members should only play alone, with members of your household who are Club Members, or with one other person from outside your household, while practising social distancing.
4/ You must only use your own woods, block and mat brought with you. Bring your own hand sanitizer etc. with you
5/There will be a sheet of paper and pens in a plastic sleeve under the lean-to at the side of the club. You must put the time you start, and finish, the date and the names of all playing in legible writing.
6 /A maximum of 2 blocks at any one time,
7/ One hours playing time unless there are less than 2 blocks on the green. If other members are waiting please be practical
8/ No spectators other than members waiting to play.
9/ Maintain social distancing at all times, both playing and waiting.
Please remember these conditions are for the health of all of us, not just some fancy. The recording of who has played for any future contact tracing is vital as ensuring we learn if anyone subsequently suffers from Coronavirus.
Peter Cotton, the Club Safeguarding Officer, should be contacted if there are any issues of any sort.
We intend for the side gate to be unlocked before 10.30am and locked again from 8 to 8.30pm.
The recording of who has played is important in the Government’s plans for any tracing of contacts.
Maintain social distancing at all times.
The jack will need regular sanitizing and you must be careful about touching your face etc as is stressed to us continuously nowadays.
We will be putting a notice covering these points on the glass of the conservatory so that members can see these points when going to play.
We cannot stress enough the importance of following these government conditions if we are to be allowed to continue playing any level of bowls and indeed if we are to progress to phase two with more freedom,
