XXX As previously stated we are in difficult and unprecedented times but we must press on as best we can. In light of not being able to hold our AGM and until such time as we are allowed to convene indoors then, with the consent of the incumbent Officers and the committee, Alan Cooper has taken on the role of Acting Chairman, Barry Attwood as Acting Secretary with Fred Edwards as Acting treasurer the committee remains in place. In light of todays announcement from the Government regarding the relaxation of lockdown measures which do not include the playing of indoor sports we will be urgently meeting to discuss and plan a way forward.

XXX We are in difficult and unprecedented times but all members please be aware that the Officials and the Committee are working hard behind the scenes to make sure the Club is in good standing and ready to spring back to life as soon as able. As soon as the Council gets the green light to plan the reopening of the Complex rest assured we will be making contact and contributing to the best of our ability to get bowls back on the scene. Obviously whatever the new normal will be we wait and see but the EIBA will be issuing guidance and we will make sure the Complex take whatever the National body have to say into account in their plan for reopening. We want to play but we also need to be safe. So watch this space, we will keep you all up to date with developments as soon as we have a better idea of what lies ahead.
