COVID-19 Update

Message from the Chairman, 2nd June 2020

We intend to open the Green from next Monday, 8th June, subject to strict guidelines, for our Members so that those who wish to play bowls can do so.  If you do intend to play please ensure that you keep to the following:


Phone 01588 660891 or 07785 330383 to ensure rink availability at the following times:

2pm - 4pm Monday, Thursday, Saturday and/or 6pm - 8pm Friday

Only those coordinating the session and those booked in to play will have access to the Green and surrounding area.  

Note:  If no one books a rink the Green will remain closed for that session.  We will assess the need for further opportunities to bowl after a few weeks. 

2.  AN ALLOCATED COMMITTEE MEMBER will be at the Green with Jacks and mats ready for you to use.  These will have been disinfected ready for you.  No other equipment will be available.  Please do not enter the Equipment Shed or Snug.  Only alternate rinks will be used i.e. 1/3/5 or 2/4/6 to enable you to maintain social distancing. 

3.  YOU WILL HAVE TWO HOURS ON THE GREEN plus up to half an hour before your session. 

Please be ready to play promptly at the start time and ensure social distancing at all times.  No shaking hands, high fiving or any physical contact please!

There will be a maximum of 6 people on the Rink at any one time.
