THE BOWLS CLUB IS SHUT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE CORONAVIRAS.
SEE BELOW FOR LATEST UPDATE:
Like most Bowls clubs in our county, Cotswold are anxious to begin our Outdoor Season, however, the Board of Directors have decided at a Board Meeting held this week (via Zoom ) that the time is not right to sanction this at the moment. We have taken into account Government advice on social distancing, safeguarding vulnerable adults, and requirements to ensure health and safety.
We have also taken advice from Bowls England who specify in a very comprehensive list of measures that clubs should take before approving opening up the greens (even in a limited way) for play. Our conclusion is that we are unable to guarantee the level of safety required at this time. We are conscious of the fact that this situation can change significantly and rapidly when restrictions become easier to apply. The Board will therefor continue to monitor the situation and take advantage of any opportunities to reverse this decision when appropriate and safe to do so. Whilst it is disappointing for all of us who want to resume playing the sport we love, we must all maintain sufficient patience to make the right decision at the right time to ensure the well being of all our club members.
Board of Directors.
