CORONAVIRUS Current Club Status
The Green is now closed for the Season. Thanks to all who have played bowls at the club this summer for following our Covid safety protocol; we hope that the protocol made them feel safe whilst at the club and that they appreciated our attempt to offer bowling opportunities throughout the summer.
To see in more detail what the Club has been doing to continue its activities during the pandemic period click here.
Obviously at this time we have no idea how the future will unfold but we will be trying to provide some limited activities in the Clubhouse throughout the winter months whilst very strictly following Government guidelines.
Our first initiative was to run a ‘Covid Friendly’ Skittles Competition in which bubbles of 6 entrants (maximum) will hopefully enjoy some light hearted social interaction during the 6-week period from 2nd November to 11th December.
More information on the teams, their session times and hopefully images of members enjoying themselves (when they can!) will appear on the Skittles League page which can also be reached via the Fixtures & Comps dropdown menu. If this activity proves to be both popular and a success then, (providing Government allows) a Darts Competition could follow in February & March 2021.
****However owing to the Government announcement of tighter Covid restrictions on October 31st the Skittles event has had to be postponed and the clubhouse made out of bounds to club members; we hope to be able to go with this this as soon as conditions will allow****
To keep members up to date with things that have been going on throughout recent periods and planned for the future, a Newsletter was issued to all current members in November – a copy of that newsletter can be viewed (or downloaded for printing) by clicking here or selecting the Newsletter from the CLUB INFO navigation tab at the top of this page.

Thinking of you all
100 Club Draw
1st prize – Joan Butler (107)
2nd prize – Dave (Georgie) Sear (145)
3rd prize – David Brown (17)
Lesley Brown carried out this draw at home (with David’s help) using an official random number generator web-site. She took a screen photo of the numbers drawn and sent copies of that to our Treasurer and Secretary; she will forward a copy to anyone on request.
It looks like this will be the method used by Lesley until further notice.
We are striving to find a reduced set of winter activities that we can hold in the Clubhouse whilst strictly adhering to Government Guidelines. We are conscious that members might appreciate a safe opportunity to get out during the cold months.
Currently planned are: a Daily Skittles programme between November and early December and then a Daily Darts programme in February and March. ***However HMG Covid19 restrictions announced on 31st October have meant postponement of the Super Six Skittles Event below – we’ll re-schedule as soon as we are allowed to!***
