SAFETY UPDATE  OCTOBER 8TH

It is great to see you all bowling and we want to keep it that way.  The VIRUS is still out there and we still need to keep each other safe.  It is good that we are very busy and at times it is impossible to keep the distance at 2 metres, even on the veranda.

Therefore, please can you wear a face mask when arriving at the centre and keep it on until you are on the green and ready to play.  Please wear it when leaving the green and changing your shoes as it has been quite apparent that social distancing is not being adhered to at the end of the rinks and especially in the huts.  Please wear it whenever entering the building to speak to staff in the office, use the toilet, collect your belongs from the changing room and when arriving for short mat.

 And remember it is still only one at a time in the changing rooms to collect your belongings.  Please do not stay in there to change

This mean that you still have to keep your distance.  Please be aware of who is around you follow the guideline and keep your distance as much as possible. 

Track and Trace – We now have the QR code displayed at the centre for you to check in to the centre if you wish but you are still required to check in with the staff in the office on arrival.

 IF WE STAY SAFE WE CAN STAY OPEN
