The Committee met on Wednesday 14th April and it was agreed that the Green will open for roll ups from Monday 19th April.
From then on the Green will be available for Roll Ups every day from 12.00 noon.
Softy drinks will be available from the fridge by the gent’s toilet and an Honesty box will be put by there.
We will again be running an afternoon and evening league for club members and this
will start after 17th May.
Club Competitions will commence in June.
We trust by now that every member knows the government guidelines which the club must adhere to, so
unless members start mixing there will be no booking system at present.
Social distancing must be strictly adhered to, unless from the same family.
If you have a roll up with another person then only one person should touch the mat and the jack.
After your roll up we expect you to sanitise the mats and jack before returning them to the shed.
The clubhouse is closed at present and no drinks will be served, hence why soft drinks from fridge.
Also the changing rooms are not to be used, but you can go to the toilets, but please be aware that a
face mask must be worn when going inside to the toilets.
Please make sure you thoroughly was your hands and sanitise regularly as per government advice after
using the toilets and spray sanitise the taps and anything else you have touched.
Inside the gents changing room there will be a folder for anyone attending the club for a roll up to sign. This is for Track and Trace purposes.
There will also be QR posters for using the NHS Track and Trace App.
Lastly, before we can open the clubhouse we require Volunteers to help with a thorough clean of the
Please contact Will Glass, before Friday 7th May if you are prepared to help with the preparation

Another fun filled success throughout the winter months, with many Fish and Chip suppers enjoyed by all, and raising £340 for charity.
See you soon.
To All Swindon Bowls Club Members.
As many of you will know, our recent Ron West Trophy Tournament was yet again an outstanding success. The weather was kind to us, there were some excellent matches played and everyone involved had a good time.
As a result of this years event, the Club was able to donate £162 to both MacMillan Cancer Support and the Alzheimer’s Society and letters of thanks from both charities are on display on the noticeboard in the clubhouse.
Congratulations go to this years winner, Mrs Jean McCaffery, who also won this tournament in 2017. An incredible achievement, well done Jean.
Sincere thanks must also go to Derek Caddy, Bill Pearce and all the other members involved in making this tournament a huge success.
