CORONAVIRUS Latest Club Status
The Green is now closed for the Season. Thanks to all who have been playing 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.
Obviously at this time we have no idea how the future will unfold but we will be trying to provide some limited winter activities in the Clubhouse whilst following Government guidelines very strictly. Unless the situation changes significantly for the better by April next year then, as a minimum, we intend to run the ‘Corona’ League and maybe a restricted Club Competitions programme as this year.
We are also looking to extend our Rink Booking system so that it can be used for members to sign up for any Events that may be run during the winter without having to visit the club to sign up – details to follow in due course.
Remember that system is accessed from this web-site by either clicking on the following ***Rink Booking link*** or selecting the Rink Booking dropdown from the Fixtures & Comps menu tab on the Navigation bar on the top of this page.
The Corona Mixed Singles League competition, run by Gary Fisher has now finished. More information on how this competition finished and the results and Divisional winners of each Session of can be found by clicking on the following: Corona Mixed Singles League. Any comments or suggestions for improvement of that League are welcome – don’t be backward in coming forward!
Club Competitions 2020: A limited Club Competition Programme was run this year, see 2020 Internal Competition drop down from the Fixtures & Comps tab. The Finals were held on Saturday 26th September – scroll down this page to see the results.
The Club scene as we prepared for Start Up Saturday 23rd May 2020 with our new 30ft car park banner is shown below.

Thinking of you all
100 Club Draw
1st prize – Nanette Paine (118)
2nd prize – Jackie Healy (126)
3rd prize – Sue Batchelor (53)
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.
A reminder that subscriptions for the coming year (£12 per number per year) became due on August 1 – Lesley will be chasing you!!!
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.
For further information contact Kevin Clarke (firstname.lastname@example.org or 07841 371943 – evenings only please).
Members & visitors health and well-being is our No. 1 priority.
