Updated Members Instructions – Use of Club Facilities from 3rd Dec 2021

‘ In light of the increasing numbers of Covid patients and the spread of the new ‘Omicron’ variant of the disease, the Club have erected additional signage requesting members to wear masks in the Club.
These recommendations are in line with those issued by the English Indoor Bowls Association and reflect our desires to provide a safe environment for all to enjoy bowls.
Please be respectful of staff and others whilst in the Club as we try to implement these additional safety measures’

It is advised that social distancing is maintained where ever possible when moving around the Club and face coverings are worn.

Changing rooms will be re-opened. Plus access to your lockers, but, ‘’common sense must prevail’’ as these areas are small and in order to protect members, face coverings must be worn unless you are exempt from wearing them.

Members using the Changing Rooms are to be restricted to a maximum of 6 people at any one time. Please minimise the time spent in the changing rooms. So collect your shoes, woods and equipment from your locker and change your shoes etc. in the lounge area. As before!

Club rules on bowling attire are to be adhered to. Please see notice boards for details.

The Ladies, Gents and the Disabled Toilet will be available to Members on an ‘one in, one out basis.

The Club Shop will re-open and, due to the restricted size, face coverings must be worn when in the shop.

Hand gel is available around the Club, use on entry to Club and repeat application frequently.

Enhanced cleaning regimes will remain in force, please help staff by restricting movement around the Club.
