COVID19 UPDATE: 28 March 2021

The government’s roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions in England consists of four steps, and lawn bowls as an outdoor sport may resume from Monday 29th March

(Step 1). From this date, the rules on social contact will change. People will not be required to stay at home, and will be permitted to meet outdoors in groups of up to six people, or as a group of two households, for exercise or recreation.

As a committee we feel steps can be taken on the following dates, to allow members to be able to play games. With restrictions to keep everyone safe.

The club can reopen on Monday 29th March 2021 with the following restrictions:

Rule of 6: which will mean a maximum of 12 people to be at the club during this time, this will be only bowlers, no spectators.

Club Days: Tuesday, Thursday, will be as before 10am and 1pm, Saturday will stay at 1pm.

Frostbite competition: extended from 31st March till the 5th May 2021.
 

The following restrictions will apply:

Social distancing at all times: and all current safety precautions must be followed.
Club house and toilets remain closed: you can get your equipment out of the Club House, but please change outside. No more than two people inside Club House and masks need to be worn.
Doubles games: can be played on all rinks.
Triples only on rinks 1 and 3 examples: If 10 players turn up,you can do a triple on rink 1 and a doubles match 
on 3.

 

All players must log that they have been at the club on the Rink Booking Form with the following information: 

Date.
Time in and out.
Name on the rink they have played on.

This information has to be kept for 21 days for track and trace.

All other Times: Anyone booking a time slot at any other time must book with John Mahan by email jbmahan@btinternet.com  or by text on 07539447682. You will then be informed that you have your time slot, via email or text.

No one should play unless they have done one of the above.

Any club member who wishes to play/practice according to these rules will need to do the following as they arrive and leave the club:

Clean all surfaces you touch, handles, locks, Jacks, mats, etc.

Please bring your own Gel and cleaning wipes, and take any waste home.
Do not use the Parish Rooms or facilities, please respect ABCA restrictions.
Don’t use Club House to talk to others stay outside as much as possible.
Social distancing rules must be strictly adhered to at all times.    

Practical ways to keep everyone safe:

Do not shake hands before, during or after a game.
Only one player should handle the mat during the session.

Two jacks (one at each end) should be used and this should be set by one player only throughout the session agreed by skips.
If scoring only one person to handle score board/scorecard.
Do not touch your opponents’ bowls with your hands
Avoid measuring for shot/s.

When you leave:
When you finish playing, change your shoes and leave the club immediately – ensuring that you have sanitised all equipment used and anything you have touched, and that the club is secure.

• The Parish Rooms and Toilets are now open and can be used from Monday 12 April 2021. Statement from ABCA: There is only one cubicle in the Gents and one cubicle in the Ladies are in use. Because of the size of both the Gents and the Ladies toilets, only one person at a time is allowed into the area. Engaged/Vacant signs are in use on the outer doors, off the kitchen. All surfaces that are touched must be sanitised after use. A mask must be worn all the time you are in the Parish rooms.

Roadmap Timeline

The government will review four tests ahead of each Step. The dates outlined within this document are the earliest that we may move to each step and may be subject to change. You can read a summary of what will be included in each step on the government's website.
• Step 1: Begins on Monday 29 March
• Step 2: begins no earlier than Monday 12 April (confirmation expected w/c Monday 5 April)
• Step 3: begins no earlier than Monday 17 May (confirmation expected w/c Monday 10 May)
• Step 4: begins no earlier than Monday 21 June (confirmation expected w/c Monday 14 June)

As we move through each new Step of the government’s roadmap, we will update our guidance accordingly. Please note that this guidance is based on the information published by the government to date, and will be updated following any further updates. A maximum of one week’s notice ahead of each change is expected.

Please feel free to contact the Secretary or any of the committee if you have any questions.

Club competitions:

These can restart from 10th May 2021, you will need to book to join the following competitions. Open singles, Men’s Doubles, Mixed Doubles, and Handicap singles. You will need to do this via the Members pack entrance form or email, text, phone John Mahan by the dates on the 2021 programme. The entrance fee will also need to be paid to join these competitions.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

From 17th May 2021 The club can allow up to a maximum of 30 people:

This will only happen if the government agrees that this step will go ahead or another date is given then as a club we will revise the dates.

• Normal club afternoons will take place at 1pm on Thursday and Saturday.

• Sybil Pickup trophy will be able to start on Tuesday 18th May 2021 at 6pm.

• Club house will be open but with no more than 6 people should be in the Club house at a time.

All other dates as the 2021 programme attached to the members pack, all this is subject to the government guidelines, when we will inform the membership if this happens.

It is in all our interest to keep to these measures, to keep safe and protect others. Please feel free to contact The Secretary or any of the committee if you have any questions, 

Government Guidance for Sports and Physical Activity Tier Four:

Indoor gyms and sports facilities will close. Outdoor sports courts, outdoor gyms, golf courses, outdoor swimming pools, archery/driving/shooting ranges, riding centres and playgrounds can remain open for individual exercise, and for people to use with others within your household, support bubble, or with one person from another household. 

To allow this to happen all games will need to be booked through the Secretary via text or email so that numbers can be controlled and for track and trace requirements. It would help if bookings are for a 90 minute session within one week (Mo-Su) periods. This would mean you arrive at the start time and leave once your time is up, and no more than twice in a week to allow as many people to play as possible. Please advise date and time you would like, and a reply will say if available. 

Anyone booking a time slot must do so with the Secretary: jbmahan@btinternet.com or by text on 07539447682.
