Following on from Phase 3 guidelines, our Committee met to discuss how things might change and a document was produced to highlight the best way forward. The main changes we considered and we are implementing are as follows;
NUMBER OF RINKS IN USE:
We are going to continue using three out of the six rinks in use. This is based on the current demand for and use of the green and the fact that 24 members can be accommodated on 3 rinks at any one time.
Booking procedures are now much simpler, the time for booking in advance has been removed, the number of sessions allowed greatly increased and telephone booking is available to all. In addition, there is a new facility for spontaneous booking which might encourage some members.
For the moment, no competitions will take place - only "bounce" games.
No coaching will be available, mainly due to the lack of personnel available to provide coaching.
It was thought best to continue to not allow spectators - unless they are attending in special circumstances such as being a carer or accompanying under 16's.
The Committee decided that the toilets can now be used, but certain restrictions and procedures need to be followed. The toilets are open for individual use by booked players on a one out/one in basis. Entry is only via the main clubhouse main door using player's own key and the displayed instructions for use must be strictly adhered to - if the door is open, do not enter. This means that the toilets are occupied. When a member is finished using the toilet, they should close and lock the main door to inform other members that the toilet is then vacent. Next person to use the toilet should leave the main door open when the toilet is in use and so the process continues. It is important that members disinfectant to clea any touched surfaces.
The locker room can only be used as a passageway to the toilets and the lounge area is out f bounds.
The bar will not be in use>
No player can play any bowls - even just "bounce" game - on the green, without first having renewed their membership by paying the annual fee. This is for insurance reasons. The committee have decided that any member having paid their subscription this season, can choose whether they want to support the club and pay agan next season, but there will be no compulsion to do so. Any member having not paid this season will have to pay next season to retain their membership. This of course has to meet the approval of the members at the next AGM.
