CANCELLATION OF LEAGUE BOWLING

This was a unanimous decision and one which we hope all clubs will accept and support. The safety of all bowlers was paramount in coming to that decision. Thank you.

CORONA VIRUS, SUSPENSION OF ALL BOWLING

SUSPENSION OF ALL CROWN GREEN BOWLING

This is an extract from the British Crown Green Bowling Association, C.E.O. Mark Bircumshaw, to all County Associations, dated 16.3.20.

Following the Government announcement this afternoon, it is with great sadness that we have to suspend all bowling for the forseeable future.

Based on the advice announced, we need to avoid all mass gatherings and spoirting events as these will no longer be supported by the emergency services.

If anyone within your household has symptons then the whole family need to isolate for 14 days.

Limit social contact wherever possiblew and encourage working from home. At risk groups-those over 70 and those with medical conditions need to take additional care.

All B.C.G.B.A. meetings should now be postponed and 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 competitions.

All B.C.G.B.A. and B.C.G.L.C.C. 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.

Please take care of yourself and stay safe.

On behalf of the Management Committee, B.C.G.B.A.

Chris Hasselby       B.C.G.B.A. Chairman

Mark Bircumshaw, B.C.G.B.A. C.E.O.
