Announcement – Hampden Bowling Club Reopening From 1st July 2020
The Committee held a meeting with regard the opening of the Hampden Bowling Club and completed a full risk assessment. Following extensive planning from our Match Secretary (a massive thank you from the entire committee and membership), we will be able to take bookings for play on the green from Wednesday 1st July at 1pm. We have appropriate sanitisers and hand gels in place as the mats and jacks must be thoroughly cleaned before and after each game.
To comply with the guidance, we are operating a new booking system, whereby there will be a CoVid Coordinator managing the green. We have conducted a survey of all playing members on potential demand and the times available are as follows, where we will operate to a maximum of 3 rinks:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday Afternoons with an additional option of Tuesday and Thursday Evenings (subject to demand).
This ensures that the club is opened for play every day and will require a large commitment from our Committee to manage this. You will need to contact Ian Lewis (Match Secretary) to book a time on 07856 797711 (at least with 24 hours notice from your booking time) and you will be given your rink at that time. If using a text or voicemail for a booking request, please leave you name and details.
Each session will last 50 minutes, allowing cleaning time between sessions and ensuring that we maintain Government Guidance. Once your session is completed, we would ask that you leave the premises straightaway. There are also no spectators allowed at this time unless they need a carer.
Please be aware you cannot just turn up at the green to play without booking first and you will not be able to enter the premises. Furthermore, only fully paid up full members will be able to book. If you are having any difficulties with your fees, please speak to me privately, as soon as possible. In the meantime the clubhouse and bar will remain closed, including toilets, and no alcohol will be allowed to be consumed on the premises.
We have set up the following times for you to come along and pick up your equipment:
Saturday 27th June between 1 – 3pm and Sunday 28th June between 1 – 4pm.
Again you will need to phone ahead to book your own time.
If you have any queries, please contact me or a member of the committee. We will again phone round the membership to let them know of these important announcements. Please help spread the word, wherever possible.
We understand that this is an essential form of exercise and we are still welcoming new members. Please get in touch via our website at http://www.hampdenbowlingclub.com for more information or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is one of the Community’s most important assets and we would encourage you to think about membership at Hampden to ensure it is here for another 115 years.
Stay safe and look forward to seeing you all soon.
