FAIRLIGHT BOWLS CLUB
NEWSLETTER - APRIL 2021
Hi Everyone! I do hope you are all well and looking forward to the new bowls season. Andy and his merry band of helpers have been busy preparing the green, surrounding areas and the pavilion in readiness for open day on April 17. In the pavilion a new hot water heater, cooker and floor tiles in the kitchen have been laid and the benches outside have either been painted or oiled. All done, of course, while adhering to the Covid restrictions of social distancing, etc. Everything is looking very smart.
OPENING OF THE GREEN – SATURDAY 17 APRIL - Due to Covid restrictions the pavilion will not be open today. However, it is still intended that we “toast the green” before playing a game of bowls, weather permitting. There will be a “spider” the fee of which will be £1. The toilets will be open but please do not forget to sanitize after use.
MATCH INFORMATION - Dave Radford has been busy organising the matches and I set out below some changes to the fixtures list and other notes:
Sunday 1 August, away starting at 2.00pm
Sunday 5 September, at home starting at 2.00pm.
Both matches will be in whites. These matches are to celebrate Rosemount’s 100 Year Anniversary.
Phew! That is a lot of information. I hope it is clear but if anyone has any questions in relation to any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact any of the Captains.
CLUB SHIRTS – Commencing this season, club shirts will be worn for ALL matches. If you do not yet have a club shirt, or require another, please contact Mark Jarvis (telephone 431103). An order has to be placed with the suppliers in the next day or two, so would you please contact Mark asap. Thank you.
BENCHES – The Club now has many wooden benches and would like to pass on the white benches. If any member would like one of these white benches please let Joe Gentleman know. They are not for sale but a donation to the Club would be welcome. (Joe’s telephone number is 814027)
WATER TANK- As most of you are probably aware the present water tank for the green has leaked for a while now. Andy Eames has now made arrangements for this to be replaced and the new one should be fitted in approximately six week’s time.
I very much look forward to seeing everyone again this season and wish you all good health and happy bowling.
Pat Tulley - Chairman
