THE BOWLS CLUB IS SHUT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE CORONAVIRAS.
SEE BELOW FOR LATEST UPDATE:
Everything is in place for some outdoor bowling to take place starting on Monday 8th June.
Only Cotswold Outdoor Bowlers who have paid their outdoor subscription will be allowed to play.
If you belong to a vulnerable group and do not wish to put yourself at risk then stay at home.
We have followed the advice from BOWLS ENGLAND for the safe resumption of bowling based on Government advice and carried out a risk assessment. Having identified all the requirements and restrictions we have in place sanitizing stations at various locations as well as signs to go with them. YOU MUST ADHERE TO THE INFORMATION ON THE SIGNS. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL PUT THE WELL-BEING OF YOURSELF AND OTHER BOWLERS AT RISK.
Social distancing must be adhered to at all times.
The club will remain closed so there are no changing facilities.
Come dressed for play and change into your bowls shoes at the green.
The outdoor toilets are available. They have been cleaned and everything sanitized. Disinfectant, antibacterial spray, hand gel, antiseptic wipes and hand washing facilities are available in the toilets. A sanitizing station is located outside the toilet doors. PLEASE USE YOUR TOILET AT HOME BEFORE COMING TO THE GREEN TO REDUCE THE USE AT THE GREEN.
BOOKING A RINK
It has been necessary to introduce a rink booking system so we can ensure LIMITED NUMBERS AT THE GREEN in order to maintain social distancing of 2 metres minimum. DO NOT turn up unless you have booked in advance.
To book a 1 hour session you MUST contact me, preferably by phone, but e-mail is ok. Tel; 01452 414084, 07903324096, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will allocate the slot you require if it is available.
Bookings begin from 12 noon each day with a 20 min gap to allow members to leave before the members for the next session can enter the green area.
So sessions will be 12 noon to 1 pm, 1.20 pm to 2.20pm etc up to when it gets too dark.
Alternate rinks will be used - 1,3,5 or 2,4,6.
Use sanitizer on the gate latch, locks, bolts, jacks, mats,woods - anything you touch. Spray and wipes available for this.
Sanitize everything you touch before and after play. DO NOT ASSUME THE PREVIOUS PLAYERS HAVE SANITIZED EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU TOUCH ANYTHING.
DO NOT USE SCOREBOARDS, PUSHERS, DITCH MARKERS, 2 METRE STICKS, CHALK.
1 PLAYER TO HANDLE THE MAT AND USE THE SCORECARD.
ALWAYS KEEP 2 METRES APART.
Please stick to the rules in these abnormal times and remember we have CCTV so we can check if anyone is not following the rules. Failure to observe the rules of play will mean we have to close the green so we rely on everyone being responsible enough to ensure this does not happen.
The information and advice coming from the Government and Bowls England is subject to change and we will respond accordingly. The measures we have introduced are based on information we had last week.
If you need any more information or clarification, please contact me as above.
