Fairlight Bowls Club Newsletter
I hope everyone is well and coping with the “lockdown”. I regret that there is no news yet as to when the Club will be re-opening.
Presentation Lunch: The Committee has cancelled the presentation lunch arranged for Wednesday 14 October. We have written to the Brickwall Hotel advising them and thanked them for their support over the past few years. I also take this opportunity to advise you all that there will be no social events at all this season. However, this may change should the Club open later in the season.
Financial: Georgie has advised that the financial position of the Club remains pretty even at the moment; but with no revenue being generated there is no room for complacency. No projects will be undertaken this year other than the usual running expenses i.e. supples for the green.
General: As Frank mentioned in his note to you all last month, Hazel Brown contracted Coronavirus and recovered! Hazel will be 100 years of age on 8 May so her recovery from this dreadful virus is nothing short of remarkable. She was sent home but it was found that she needed some special care and is in a nursing home. If any of you who know Hazel and would like to send a birthday card, please send to her home address. Someone is collecting her mail each day and sending it to her.
Corinne Wheatley has asked me to pass on her grateful thanks to all the people who sent their condolences, emails, phone calls and the many lovely cards in the loss of Derrick. She wishes you all to know that they gave her such comfort in receiving them. She sends her regards to everyone and says to all stay safe and well until we all meet again.
The green continues to be well looked after by Andy with some assistance from Joe. When I walk my dog I occasionally pass by the green and I can tell you that it is looking pretty good.
Patricia Tulley – Chairman.
