Quiz Night Not At The District Club 2

Following the success of the first quiz, we have decided to have another fun quiz night for members that will be 100% lockdown compliment.  You can join in by telephone or on a computer / tablet / mobile and it will let everyone communicate as well as test who is the smartest or knows the most useless facts. Emails have been sent with details of how to join in, if you need more details then please contact us by email.

Quiz Night Not At The District Club

As we are still all stuck at home and missing the club, we are organising a quiz night for Wednesday the 13th of May at 8 pm. You will be able to take part by phone or online. Emails have been sent with details of how to join in, if you need more details then please contact us by email.

From the president

To all members,

We are all facing difficult times and some members may be finding daily life more trying than others. If you live alone or need help of any kind please ring me on 07770499631. You will appreciate my help is very limited but I don’t want any member to feel more isolated than we actually are.

​​​​​​​It has been decided to close the bowling green from today until further notice.

Stay safe till we meet again at the club.

The President


Note to all Members
18th MARCH 2020


We are beginning to receive more definite advice, particularly instructions as to how Clubs such as ourselves should handle the present situation.

People are being advised to avoid social venues for a period of at least 12 weeks because of the gathering together of people. We do not have to close the Club and, given the way the Club is used, with one or two playing snooker or something similar at a time members can continue to use the club at their own risk for snooker and social bowls. We would expect members to follow basic guidelines with an emphasis on handwashing and physical distance. Members over 70 need to be aware of specific government instructions for their age group.

As for scheduled club events, these will be postponed until such time as the current guidance is relaxed and it is appropriate for us once again to have larger-scale functions within the club.

There are a number of points to consider.

1. It may be difficult to keep milk and such like continuously available.
2. The Ladies Bridge Club has closed for at least a month
3. The BCGBA has announced that all leagues and competition under its authority are suspended.
4. I have no information at the moment about the snooker league but would be surprised if it continues at the present.

I am sorry to have to write in this way but am sure you all understand the need.

District Club Council
