Chairman's June Update
Hampden Park (Eastbourne) Bowling Club
CHAIRMANS UPDATE 23/06/2020
Well it’s time to update you all regarding the new rules as laid down by the government today. As we understand it, not much has occurred to alter the present situation regarding the use of our facilities. The greens until further notice will stay as they are, the facilities could be opened to allow bowlers to sit 1 metre apart, however this would mean that when bowlers get up and leave the club that the whole area they have used would have to be sanitized, making a lot of extra work and confusion. We feel that at present the current procedures will still remain the best way of ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our members. Therefore the present rules and regulations will remain in place.
The booking system is now working well thanks to Kevin’s diligence. Thanks to Brian the lay out of the greens and equipment and the sanitization process, works very well. As well as this John, Dave G and Michael have been keeping the grounds, gardens and borders up to an excellent standard. The teas at half time I feel should go on being free to our members, arranged by the steward. However, the bar as I understand it, will not open for the sale or service of alcoholic beverages until the 4th July, when drinks will be ordered through the bar person, who will deliver them to the members outside the clubhouse. Simply put the current operating procedures will remain in place before any additional changes are made as the safety of our members is still our top priority.
It’s so nice to see more bowlers taking up the opportunity to bowl on our excellent greens, plus hearing the banter which l know we have all missed. The weather has been superb. Please do not be nervous regarding coming down to the club either to bowl or sit for a chat, and I look forward to seeing you all back where we all belong at HAMPDEN PARK BOWLS CLUB
Best wishes from your chairman
