Coronavirus - committee guidance - update

As the government has ordered, the club has now shut down temporarily until further notice. The green will be maintained as we hope to salvage something of the season, hopefully early summer but wait and see.
Last night (Friday 20th March) Willie, Mandy and Beth contacted all the members to tell them what was happening and also to offer help if needed for any member who is experiencing difficulty through illness.
This will help to keep the community spirit going in our club.

If anybody hears of members struggling over food deliveries or whatever, they could let Willie, Beth or Mandy know as they are all out and about anyway and continuing to work.

As you can appreciate from all the news reports etc regarding the Coronavirus, the safety and well-being of all our members, employees and guests must be our top priority.  As a result the Management Committee decided to cancel all forthcoming events till the end of April.  These include:

  • Friday evening bingo sessions
  • Bingo Tea to be held on Monday 23rd March
  • Monday afternoon carpet bowls
  • Saturday 28th March Carpet Bowls ‘Fun Evening’

The deadline for both full and social member subscriptions will now be extended from the 30th March to the 30th April.

Members are strongly reminded to comply with the latest Government and NHS guidance – full details can be found HERE

If you have any queries re the above please contact a member of the Management Committee.  Further statements will be issued as and when appropriate to keep members updated.

Local pupils enjoy 'taster' to bowls

On the 11th September the club hosted a very successful ‘taster’ session for pupils from Blairgowrie High School.  Dylan Higgins (Pupil Support teacher) thanked all the club members who gave their time to enabling and supporting a brilliant experience for the pupils. They had a wonderful time and were full of excitement and enthusiasm for bowling when they discussed their visit the next day. He asked to pass on their thanks and appreciation to Lorna, Sheila, Barbara, Pat, Sandy and Ronnie who were so generous with their time.
