Tier 3 Restrictions

With the announcement today that Lancashire has moved into Tier 3 restrictions, we have had to take the difficult decision to shut the District Club from 10 pm today until the rules change again to allow opening.  As you will know all licenced premises must close as of midnight tonight 16/10/2020.  This means that the indoor parts of the club must remain closed, however, the bowling green can remain open as an outdoor sports facility.  As earlier in the year the side gate will be left unlocked during the day to allow access and the required track and trace log sheet will be available in the lean-to shed.  Members must comply with social distancing rules when using the green.

We appreciate that this is a disappointment for all members but we must act appropriately with the new rules.

Xmas Draw 2020

Despite the current situation, we are still running the Xmas draw. The draw night may well not be like usual but we will have some form of draw mid-December. Members who are willing to visit the club can enter in the normal way using the boards opposite the bar. For those who cannot attend at the moment, we have added the ability to enter online. Just follow the links below and we will let you have your numbers. You can buy multiple blocks or multiple rows

What’s Happening @ The District Club
