Greens Report April 2020

Dear Members

I hope you are all staying safe and like me are wondering when we will be able to bowl again.
I would like to update you on the situation with the greens. We are following the advice of Bowls England and the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) to make sure that our greens are maintained in as good a condition as possible during the current situation. We are also following the UK Government’s advice on social distancing and unnecessary travel. To this ed only Glyn and Trefor are carrying out work on the greens and surrounding area. The rest of the Greens Team, under the Government scheme, are on “furlough” although 80% of £0.00 is still zero, so nothing has changed there! (apologies to David Ryde-Rogers for borrowing that)
The ”roadside” path of the top green has been re-laid to remove a possible trip hazard. We should all find it a bit safer when we next play a game in the direction away from the Club House.
We have received a few thoughts/suggestions on how we could make use of the greens during this time. However, I can positively say there are no plans to dig up the bottom green and plant potatos!
Finally, I am reliably informed that the greens are looking in really good condition, so my thanks go to both Glyn and Trefor for their continued hard work.

Keep well and stay safe. I look forward to meeting you all at the Club before too long

Ken Curtis.

Presidents Message April 2020

Hello everyone
I hope this email finds you all well . The weather at the moment has been kind to us and, if like me, you are lucky enough to have a garden, mine has never looked better, it certainly helps to pass the time away and for those of you who have not got gardens I hope you are keeping yourselves busy in other ways. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will be back bowling sometime this year.
Thank you to all of you who are communicating with other members and in the meantime take care of yourselves
Love and best wishes to you all”

President’s Message

President RosemaryMessage from our President

The club was all prepared for another busy season of bowls, the fixtures were done, the greens look an absolute picture and along comes Coronavirus and changes everything. The chance of bowling this year doesn’t look good but hopefully we may get onto the green later in the summer, so in the meantime keep safe and don’t forget that the use of a telephone has not be banned (yet) so keep in touch with your fellow bowlers.

Hopefully I will see you soon.
