Hi everyone

Good news, we can open the bar. However, before it can be used there are several procedures that have to be put in place. Therefore, the bar will open on Thursday 9th July 2020 for our first club night of the season.

We would ask you to please adhere to the procedures (which are in line with guidelines set down by the Government and Bowls England) that we have put in place. These are for the good of us all and will hopefully continue to keep everyone safe.

Procedures

There will be a one-way system operating in the club i.e. in the back door, out of the patio door. No going out of the back door and no coming in the patio door.

CHANGING ROOMS CANNOT BE USED EXCEPT TO GET YOUR EQUIPMENT TO ALLOW YOU TO PLAY BOWLS.

The toilets can be used.

The kitchen can be used with social distancing.

The use of the bar will be very strictly controlled.

There will be a queuing system from the bar along to the back door.

There will only be two customers allowed at the bar at any one time.

No one is allowed to loiter at the bar.

Once you have been served, handed over your cash and received the change, please sanitise your hands.

Empty glasses to be placed on the small table in front of the bar.

The small table in front of the bar will also act as a two-metre distancing tool between customers at the bar.

MOST IMPORTANTLY; ON THE POOL TABLE THERE WILL BE A REGISTER IN WHICH EACH PERSON VISITING THE CLUB MUST ADD THEIR NAME ON EACH OCCASION THEY VISIT. THIS DOCUMENT WILL ONLY BE USED IF THERE IS THE NEED TO INSTIGATE TRACKING PROCEDURES AND WILL BE DISPOSED OF AFTER TWENTY ONE DAYS.
