In addition to our normal cleaning and sanitising system, the Club has organised a complete sanitisation programme that covers the entire Bowls Hall including carpets, chairs, tables, rails, bowls mats, etc.The Centre is sprayed once a month with a product call Zoono that keeps killing viruses for up to a month. However, we cannot rely on just this product to do the job completely, you as a member must also be responsible for keeping our Club a Covid safe environment.Please help by doing the following:

Disposing of Rubbish-Please use the large pedal bins provided by the Reception, Lounge Area and Walkways.DO NOT use the small bins at the back of each rinks unless disposing of antibacterial wipes.Take your plastic bottles home!

Hand Sanitiser & Antibacterial Wipes- The Club has provided both products. They are on the tables at the back of rinks and at the top seating area, in the Lounge area by the urn and on the bar.Additionally, automatic hand sanitising dispensers are situated at Reception, by each entrance of the Ladies, Gents and Disabled Toilets and in between the entrances to the Ladies and Gents Changing rooms.Please use them as necessary.

Moving Chairs/Furniture-Please avoid moving chairs, etc. where possible, but if you do have to move an item please put it back to where you found it when you have finished!

Please be very aware that even though you have been double vaccinated you could still catch or pass on the Covid-19 virus, so we would ask you as members and guests to take every possible precaution to avoid the virus entering the Bowls Centre.

The Committee retains the right to amend the above procedures at any time, or to close the Bowls Centre, should there be any risk of infection to it’s working volunteers, bowlers or guests. In the case of an outbreak the Committee will undertake to inform the membership as soon as possible.
