Since our Committee's earlier views, the most recent advice from the Government, to stay at home, really means that Ellon Bowling Club cannot open until furthur notice. It has been made very clear by the Government that we have to stay at home.
- Shop for basic necessities – Once a day
- Take exercise alone or with persons from household - Once a day
- Medical reasons or care for a vulnerable person
No social events of any sort can now take place and thias includes weddings and christenings, so it would be really irresponsible if we allowed the green to be used for members to congregate, even though it happened to be only six rinks of singles. To be honest, the decision has been made for Ellon Bowling Club by the Government.
As for subscriptions we would like to suggest that members still pay their subscriptions, as has been suggested by Bowls Scotland and what happens with the payments can be reviewed later - refund, partial refund, reduction in next Season's subscriptions or whatever. This will have to be done by letterbox drop or by post, since the meetings to collect subscriptions on 9-10th April will also have to be postponed. Any future decision regarding opening of the green will be reviewed regulary, as circumstances change or situation develops.
