It is 2 weeks tomorrow that we Opened “Our Green” to members for bowling asking for all to follow all the Covid advice issued? First you have been returning in very good numbers on “Roll Ups” Club Nights” and already one home Friendly with Totton for the Mens teams has happened! However there is still some more of our members we would like to see return please? Bowls is emerging nationally as a very “Covid Safe” sport to play, is popular and with everybody following the rules you can play, enjoy and feel safe. Many of you would have received either one or two “Vaccine Jabs” by now so its a very safe place to be at Lyndhurst B.C. where we have the space for you to play.
Bowls Equipment. In our local area we are lucky to have on Sunday next 25th April a “Bowls Direct Roadshow” at nearby Clubs. You will be able to purchase anything you should need personal bowls wise, or order and it will be forwarded to you in the post? On the morning its 11am to 1pm approx at Fordingbridge Bowls Club and in the afternoon from 2pm to 3 pm approx at Waterside Bowls Club, Holbury. Plenty of parking, bring a mask and all will be fine. You are ALL invited by these clubs to attend and Bowls Direct of course who want your business?
Also Sunday 25th April from 1-45 for 2pm start, there is an afternoon of Ladies Only practise for you to attend. Susan, Shirley and Marie would be pleased to see you there for you to get swinging? While on the Ladies Section, Marie has put plenty of information about this season with NFWBA matters on the Ladies Notice Board (you are allowed to view but one at a time pleas inside the Clubhouse)
On the Mens Section Adrian has now posted onto the Notice Board the 2021 NFBA Competitions for you to view (same rules as the Ladies please inside) Other Match and Friendlies Information is posted on the outside windows please take a look!
My apologies for the current “tram lines” on the Green. It has been treated with a light moss killer and these will grow out? Unfortunately we are suffering a very dry spell so not much growth taking place at present. The good news is the green is very fast which I know suits some of you especially on long jacks!!
Finally next week there will details posted to you all of our “Open Day 2021” a very important date 29th May 2021.” This year we are part nationally of “The Big Bowls Weekend” sponsored and promoted by Bowls England, so start thinking of your friends, family, neighbours etc to come along. We need as many people to attend (safely) as possible to give our great game a try? New members are VITAL to the Clubs progression in the future!!!
