September 2021 Update

As I’m sure you’re aware, the government has announced the lifting of various restrictions from Monday 19th July. In line with this, here is an update on guidance for using the Bowls Centre:
– Social distancing restrictions are lifted, but is still “advised” between groups you don’t normally mix with. However this does mean all our rinks are now open.
– There is no legal requirement to wear face masks indoors, but, again it is still advised. If you wish to bowl without one, that’s up to your judgement.
– Hand sanitisers and facilities for cleaning bowls equipment will continue to be placed at the end of the rinks.
– The NHS Test & Trace QR code will remain on the front door, for you to scan on entry. We will also be retaining the sign-in sheets at Reception for those customers without the app. There is no legal requirement for you to sign in, but it is advised.
– Spectators are now permitted, so the seating area overlooking the green will be available.
– Non-Members can play again. The price is the same is it was before – £6.50 for one hour, or £8.50 for two hours
– Membership renewals forms for this year (2021-2022) are available at Reception now, for those who haven’t done so already.

If you have any questions regarding these matters, please do not hesitate to contact us.
