The car park at the old Con Club building is no longer a pay and display car park. Only ‘authorised’ permit holders are allowed to park. Once a car enters the gate a number plate recognition system operates and unauthorised vehicles face a £100 penalty from Britannia Parking.
Cranford Bowling Club has 12 authorised permits. These will be distributed at each match as 6 for each team. During the match the registration numbers of the 12 (or fewer) parked vehicles will be sent electronically to Britannia. Individuals who have parked will be asked to enter into a pad their registration number and this will be sent electronically to Britannia. The team captains will make and sign a note of the registration numbers sent to Britannia. The Home team will keep the note as proof should there be any future problems.
I’m afraid that we have been advised that these restrictions will be rigidly enforced so please advise your club/league members of these arrangements, putting the details on the League’s Web site if that is appropriate. If a visiting team arrives in more than six vehicles there is a risk, even if some leave promptly, that the fines will apply.
You can see that this process will be a nuisance for both homesters and visitors. It will therefore be helpful if all captains arrange in advance for their teams not to arrive in more than six vehicles and on arrival to help the Home captain record the registration numbers.
Cranford Bowling Club Captains will do all they can to ensure that nobody is penalised so please help them to achieve this.
Chairman Cranford Bowling Club
