BOWLS NEWSLETTER: JUNE 2020

CONTRIBUTIONS FOR FUTURE NEWSLETTERS SHOULD BE SENT TO OUR EDITOR: KEN HOMEWOOD

WE ARE OPEN FOR BOWLING

Ember’s Social Distancing Bowls was off to a prompt, if quiet, start at the stroke of midday on Saturday 23rd May.

Jenny Gets the Season Under Way. Malcolm Offers Direction!

Ember’s Green is now open for Bowls, subject to Social Distancing Rules. As of now we have 26 bowlers who have either played or have booked a rink. If you want to participate you will need to book a rink. Full details of how you may use the Green under Social Distancing rules are available on the website.
Please note that the Clubhouse and Changing Rooms remain closed.
Do not be shy, if you are on your own just contact another member for setting up a game.

We have a pair of tits who have set up their nest in the cigarette end bin by the entrance to the clubhouse. They are going to get a rude surprise when we open the clubhouse.
We will supply a, “Do not disturb notice”







GREEN MAINTENANCE
The green was in pristine condition for the opening on Saturday 23rd May.
THANK YOU to all those who have helped and those who offered but were not required this time. (You will have another opportunity)

FUTURE RELAXATION of LIMITATIONS DUE TO CORONA VIRUS
Your committee is constantly reviewing any changes to Government/Bowls England restrictions and will advise ALL members as soon as we can relax the restrictions.

EASYFUNDRAISING
The Club has just been paid an instalment of £31.55 as a result of internet purchases made via the EasyFundraising gateway. If you contributed, THANK YOU.  But how much more could it have been if we had more supporters than the 51, including non-members, who have signed up as our contributors.  The Bowls section has just 13 member contributors.  With the growth of on-line shopping necessitated by the Corona Virus, the Club is missing out on a useful source of ‘free’ income.  So please join the Fundraising Supporters via www.easyfundraising.org.uk.  It won’t cost you a penny.  A step-by-step guide on how to use the site is available on the club’s website.

BONUS BALL
Congratulations to the bonus Ball winners since the last Newsletter:

Still a few draws to go so good luck!

KEEP IN TOUCH
Although we have opened the green some members do not feel able to participate at this time for various reasons. It is nice to keep in contact. A phone call can brighten up the day for people on their own so try to phone members when you can.
Above all keep fit and optimistic.

Missing your Bowls but want to keep fit during the lock-down?  Take a look at these Bowls England “Workouts for Bowlers” videos.  (Opens in a new window)
