Opening of the green update.

Do not forget the green opens for bowling on Monday the 22nd June. Initially we will be operating with a singles format (unless there are more than two from the same household). The procedure for booking/playing is in the previous news post.

However, good news, the government has eased restriction a little further since the last news post. We can now play all formats up to triples as long as we can meet the government guidelines, which we can easily do.

So the last day of the singles format will be Sunday the 5th July. We will then run our social roll ups starting Tuesday 7th July. Roll ups will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 14.00hrs to 16.00hrs and Friday 18.30hrs to 20.00hrs.

Unfortunately we still have a huge list of procedures/guidelines we must follow, so we will be restricted to 18 bowlers per session (3 rinks of triples). All procedures previously stated will remain in place. You must book your session by telephone using the club number                  01553 675766 bookings will be restricted two 2 weeks in advance if you are bowling at the club you can book your place with the committee running the session.

Rink fees remain the same and membership remains the same.

Watch this space, it is a fluid situation and restrictions change almost daily so by our first phone call on this Monday things may have changed again.

Look forward to seeing you all on the green starting 22nd June.




Opening of the Green

Good news, the government has eased restrictions slightly. So we are now able to open the green for bowling and our green will be opening on Monday June 22nd.

However there are strict government/Bowls England guide lines we must follow so please do not just turn up at the club. We will be operating a booking system which means you will have to telephone and book your session. There will be no league bowling or roll ups it will be bowling on your own or singles i.e against another member.

Bookings will be done using the club telephone only (01553 675766) and the booking system,  for the first week will be open Monday 15th June to Sunday 21st June 10.30 to 12.00.  After the first week, booking will be available from 10.30 to 20.00 seven days a week.

There are 5 pages of guidelines we must follow,. so I will not go through them on this post, but we will be contacting all members by telephone to ensure that when you are bowling you will be complying with guidelines.

If you do need further clarification call, Secretary Geoff Bonnick  01553 673080 or Club Captain Trevor Oakey 01553675866.

Coved 19 Update

Following the last update (suspending the opening of the green)events have moved on somewhat.

The latest situation is, both codes of bowling, Bowls England and Federation have cancelled all county league bowling and all competitions for 2020. All local leagues that we take part in have either cancelled or suspended (awaiting further developments) fixtures for 2020.

We will be following government direction and hopefully restrictions will be lifted before the end of summer. If we get the opportunity to bowl we will be bowling.

So, if we are lucky  enough to start bowling this summer we will keep you informed by telephone this website and the local press. Keep safe everyone and hope to see you on the green very soon.


Opening Of The Green

Since the last news update events have overtaken us. Unfortunately due to Government directives/advice regarding the dreaded Covid 19 virus, our committee has taken the decision to cancel our opening day(the 4th April). 

We will keep a close eye on the Government guidelines and will hopefully be able to schedule another date for opening of the green. Keep watching this website for updates and information.
