‘BOWLS ENGLAND BIG WEEKEND OF BOWLS’. Sunday 30th May

With Corona restrictions being lifted and people being able to get out and about more, Bowls England is planning a Big Weekend of Bowls in an effort to encourage more people to take up our sport.   This is mainly an outdoor bowls initiative but Sevenoaks B.C. felt it would be more productive if our two Clubs joined forces for this event and we were happy to agree with this.

Therefore, an Open Afternoon will be held on Sunday 30th May from 2.30 – 5 p.m. at both Clubs.

What can you do to help?   This event will be promoted around the area but you can play your part by encouraging family, friends and neighbours to come along and ‘have a go’ at bowls, whether indoor or outdoor – or even both.

If you can display a poster anywhere, then please collect one from the Club.

We need to create a busy atmosphere at the Club during the Open Afternoon so you are welcome to come along and have a roll-up, see how things are going, or chat to any prospective members and tell them about the many advantages of playing indoor bowls.

Thank you for your help.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Dear All,
As you will know from Tuesday’s email, Sevenoaks Indoor Bowls Club will be opening its doors once again on Wednesday 14th April!  As the Club has not been used for quite a time, several cleaning jobs must be done before the 14th and this is where the Directors are hoping that members will volunteer to help.

Some of the jobs involved are hoovering the lounge area, the Churchill, cleaning the entrance windows and also the windows looking onto the green, wiping over the tables and chairs, carpet cleaning in Churchill (with a machine kindly loaned by a member), toilets, rink surrounds.  Dave Fleming is in charge of cleaning the bar area, but will need assistants.
If you can help with any of the above jobs, please ring Sally on 07788 738831 between 2-5 pm, Monday to Friday, to offer your services.  The Club will be open for cleaning on Tuesday 6th, Thursday 8th and Tuesday 13th April from 10.00 am – 1.00 pm.
Thank you for your help.

LATEST COVID19 RESTRICTIONS

Dear Member,

As you will be aware the government has placed all London Boroughs in Tier 2 whereas Sevenoaks remains in Tier 1.

The government now advise those living in Tier 2 areas not to travel to other Tier areas unless it is an essential journey, whilst household mixing indoors within Tier 2 is prohibited.   This email accordingly asks all our members who live in a London Borough to consider carefully whether they would be wise to travel to Sevenoaks and bowl at the Club.  

Wherever you live – stay safe.

Richard Purssell
