12th September 2020.
With the no more than 6 people meeting up together rule coming into effect from this Monday 14th September: please all read the following notice from Bowls England concerning outdoor bowling for the remaining 3 weeks of the season at Lyndhurst B.C.!
“Further to yesterday’s statement, we are delighted to confirm that our clubs can continue to offer organised bowling activity in a Covid-safe manner. Sport England has announced, following clarification from the Government, that people can continue to take part in organised outdoor sports when restrictions on social gatherings are introduced from Monday 14th September.
With the end of the Outdoor Bowling season fast-approaching for the majority of our clubs, we trust players will continue to enjoy our sport in a socially-distant manner, particularly if wishing to play fours at this time.”
