Apologies to all who have signed up for this event, and to those planning to.
Monday 23rd November from 9.30am
Donations please of bottled chutney/pickle, jam, etc. savories and cakes and plants. Any baked items must be cling filmed or wrapped at home. No individual cupcakes/fairy cakes; these should be on a paper plate in 4’s or 6’s, bagged or cling wrapped by the person making the donation. Unfortunately, no Bric-a-brac this year.
After a hugely successful (and socially distanced) Carvery, can I remind Members of the Chinese Evening with but with an AMENDMENT to the Menu … it is THREE COURSES (not two as previously indicated) and the Menu is on the ‘CALENDAR‘ page.
Your membership expires on 30th September. Due to the enforced closure of the Club the Directors have agreed a full Membership renewal fee of £75.00 for the year to 30th September 2021. Other levels of Membership will remain unchanged.
It will be appreciated if your renewal fee could be paid on or after the1st October, but before 31st October. You will be able to renew online from 1st October whilst there will be a Member renewal morning at the Club on Thursday 1st October from 10.00 am.
“FACE MASK Update: on checking with EIBA and the government guidelines we must ask everyone to wear FACE MASKS whilst in the building except whilst playing bowls, or eating and drinking. This brings indoor clubs in line with shops, and other indoor spaces when mixing with non-household members at less than 2m. Please remember also to keep your distance from others where at all possible, particularly when in play.
Drinks will be served to your table to avoid any gatherings or queues and reduce contacts.
There is plenty of hand sanitizer around the building, including the rinks, for your use and safety.
DRESS CODE: from 1st September dress code should be Greys please.”
There are still a few spaces available for Thursday 3rd September Club Sessions (9.30 to 12.00 noon) – please email the club, or call/text Sally on 07788 738831; don’t delay: first-come, first-served basis!! We are still limited to 24 persons on the Rinks, but the more the merrier!!
You will of course appreciate that the majority of members are considered to be vulnerable and that the Directors have, morally and legally, a duty of care to you all. After reviewing advice published by the Government, the EIBA and our insurers you will all have received a copy of the Club’s Covid-19 Operational Policy. An updated Version 4 is attached – please read it carefully and note the amended rules introduced, highlighted in italics.
Before you can play you must provide written confirmation that you have received and agree to bebound by the terms of the Operational Policy by signing the checklist upon arrival at the Club for the first time. You also need to ensure, for possible Track and Trace, that your attendance is registered.
It is not considered feasible to run any leagues, at least until the start of the Winter season, and the sessions will therefore be roll-up only for a maximum of 24 players. All bookings for the first week must be made in advance by telephone with Sally on her mobile 07788 738831 between 2.00pm and 4.00pm Monday to Friday. Payment by contactless debit card should be made when you arrive – if unavoidable notes or coins should be shown to reception staff before being placed in the marked boxes. Please do not turn up at the Club, even if you don’t intend playing, without having made a prior reservation.
The lounge and bar will be open but please refer to the Operational Policy and follow the regulations.
Welcome back – Happy bowling!
