A Message from the Chairman

ANNUAL PLANT SALE – FUND RAISER
Saturday 22 May 2021

Members,
 
First of all a big thank you to Ray for all his hard work organising the plant sale. We now know that we have cleared our outlay with a surplus of almost £420.00, which I know sounds disappointing, but on the plus side we still have around £400.00 of stock to sell, which could bring a total surplus of around £800.00. So please put the word round if you or any of your family or friends want plants. I  am down at the green most mornings from 10.00 – 11.00.
Finally a big thank you to our army of volunteers who again stepped up to the mark to help.  Yes the surplus at the moment is small but it is £420.00 we wouldn’t have had without the plant sale and everything else we sell will just add to the surplus margin.
 
A big thank you to everyone for the effort today.
 
Richard Harrison
Chairman

Members

Once again we are approaching the 2021 Bowling Season with a degree of uncertainty, however looking to the future we are planning a full programme of events (click HERE for full details) all of which are conditional on the prevailing circumstances, these events will only go ahead if we are satisfied that they are Covid compliant and the health and safety of our membership is secure.

We are proposing to hold our opening roll up at the end of May, based on the assumption that most of us will have had our second vaccination, however, this date will need to be kept under review.  We hope and expect that we will have a better bowling season which will include league bowling.  We have indicated to the league the number of teams we would like to enter and are awaiting further instructions; it may well be that the league season will start sooner than our opening roll up.  We will keep you updated on any changes as they occur.

We are holding the AGM on Friday 19th March at 2.30pm via the Internet/Zoom, the paperwork and audited accounts will be circulated separately and all members are invited to participate, as well as anyone you know who may be interested in joining the club.   We are keeping the membership subscription at £45.00, social membership at £5.00 and rink fees will stay at £1.00.  Any questions relating to the AGM should be submitted by email prior to the meeting.

Your committee is aware that we are still in uncertain times but we want to assure you that we are endeavouring to get back on track so that we can continue to participate in the sport and recreation we all enjoy.
