To all Members
What a torrid few months. The Committee hopes that you are all well and have managed to keep fit in this most difficult of times.
We are reasonably confident that we will be able to play in April, although we have to wait for the Goverment to sanction out door sport. During the winter, Andy has kept the green in good order and all should be ready for the opening on the 17th April.
Renewal packs have now been sent out to all members. If you have not received yours please contact Mark on 431103.

FBC Competitions Rules 2021
The draws for the competitions will be on our website today. Please stick to the play by dates. To keep people involved we will be running a plate competition for each of the formats. All losing players in the preliminary round and the first round will be entered into a new draw immediately after completion of the first round.
Remember this is for fun - enjoy yourselves!
You must book a rink as below:
One person will open up the gate, the clubhouse and the toilet block. Hand sanitiser will be available after handling keys.
Players must bring their equipment for each game and change shoes outside. Do not use lockers. Dress is optional except for shoes which must be bowls shoes.
Please use the mats that are in the bowl of soapy water replace them after use and top up with water if required. Do not use detergent as this could damage the green.
The game will be played with your own woods and the jack(s). No other equipment is required and the equipment shed should not be used. Move your starting point around to minimise wear. Each players’ woods should be either side of the rink. You should not handle other players’ woods. Bowl a wood and step away. Only one player touches the jack (place one on completion of each end). If you wish to keep score, bring a pen and paper. At the end of your game disinfect the jack(s) with the spray provided.
The clubhouse is not to be used except for accessing keys and jacks. The toilet block should only be used in emergencies and wipe all surfaces after use with disinfectant supplied. If you need refreshments please bring your own.
At the end of a session please leave keeping to social distancing rules. Last person out make sure the jacks are away, any keys are disinfected and returned, lock the clubhouse and gate. Wash your hands asap.
We hope these rules work for you. If you have any suggestions please let us know. We will update as we have any more information from the government or Bowls England.
Please abide by the rules and maybe they can be relaxed in the near future.
