To all involved in the Altrincham & District LV Bowling League.
After many emails and phone call’s to the League’s council members we have decided to cancel the 2020 bowling season. This was unanimously agreed on by all council members. We had a plan in place to start early July, but this seems very unlikely as Social distancing is still in place. Also Pubs and Clubs will still not be opened . Our reason for cancelling now is a lot of the bowlers are 65 and over which puts them at high risk. We don’t want to put them in any danger due to this very serious pandemic. I will be calling a council meeting as soon as we can all get together and discuss the 2021 season. I will send out details of the Rules Revision meeting when and if Pubs and clubs reopen. If you have any proposals for this meeting you can send me them anytime. I have also cancelled the presentation night due to be held in November. If any club shows any dissent and objects or complains about the Councils decision to cancel the L.V. Leagues Vets and Evening bowling season please reply to me with your reasons. Lastly please comply with the restrictions that are still in place. I will keep you informed of any developments as soon as I get them . Stay safe and take care.
L.V. League Secretary.

To County Secretaries, Management and Officers.
Following the Government announcement this afternoon it is with great sadness that we now have to suspend all bowling for the foreseeable future.
Based on the advice announced we need to avoid all mass gatherings and sporting event as these will no longer be supported by the emergency services.
If anyone within your household has symptoms then the whole family need to isolate for 14 days.
Limit social contact wherever possible and encourage working from home.
At risk groups - those over 70 and those with medical conditions need to take additional care.
All BCGBA meetings should now be postponed as un-necessary travel should be avoided. Contact in Pubs, Clubs and restaurants to be avoided.
Taking this all into account all leagues should now suspend matches until such time as we are given an all clear to resume competition.
All BCGBA and BCGLCC Competitions are now suspended until further notice this should include all qualifier events.
As a Bowls community we need to look after our members and I encourage you to follow the advice being given and support those we are able to at this very difficult time.
I will add links onto the website / face-book as these are updated.
Please take care of yourself and stay safe.
