Fairlight Bowls Club Newsletter
So much has changed since my last Newsletter and instead of being full of hope for a new bowls season I have to let you know that the club’s calendar has been greatly affected by the Corona Virus epidemic.
Opening of the Green : The traditional opening will not take place but the green will open on this day. This is to enable those who wish to visit the green for a rollup or practice can still do so. In the days and weeks ahead there may not be too much to do because of restrictions on events so you may wish to break the monotony by a visit to the green and a game of bowls!
All matches and competitions have been cancelled as have all social events. However, we do hope to resume matches and club competitions as and when we are advised it is safe to do so. Unfortunately the club’s Tournament Day has fallen victim and will not now take place. All these cancellations will have a detrimental effect on the Club’s finances. Therefore, could I please ask those of you who have not yet submitted your subscription to do so by the end of this month. Andy is still doing a magnificent job caring for the green but we still need to purchase various items to keep the green in good condition.
It is anticipated that there will be roll up sessions each day (except Wednesday and weekends) at 9.30am and 2.00pm.
This season will definitely be like no other but I am hoping that with everyone’s support we will still enjoy our bowls. If any of you have any questions about the above proposals, please do not hesitate to contact myself or any member of the committee. The situation is constantly under review by the committee and we shall certainly endeavour to keep you all up to date as matters evolve.
Keep well everyone and don’t forget to wash your hands!!!
Pat Tulley, Chairman.
