THE CLUBHOUSE AND GREEN WILL REMAIN CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
as of 17th May
Committee Announcement ~ 17th May 2020
following an 'virtual' meeting
The health and
safety of club members is our top priority so after due consideration of
Government guidelines and advice from Bowls England the committee have
decided that the clubhouse and green will remain closed until further
notice. This situation will be reviewed as and when further
information is forthcoming but we feel at present the risks to members
is too great to resume any activities other than the green and ground
Richard discussed the 2020 Tour and the committee endorsed cancelling for this year. Richard will e mail Tour members after he has had further discussions with Isle of Wight Tours.
From the webmaster
As all activity is now suspended for the present, I will no longer update individual fixtures until it is know if/when play will commence.
A Message from Our President, Richard Heathman
I am sure some of you are disappointed that the green is not open for bowling.
The criteria include bowling by yourself, or with members of your household or with one person outside your household, as long as you maintain social distancing.
Further playing arrangements include off-site booking system for rink allocation; no one can just turn up and roll up. At least 20 minutes between allocated time slots, no visitors/spectators and club house closed with possible limited access for toilet facilities only.
These are some, not all, of the initial ‘tentative steps’ being allowed. This is definitely not the ‘social’ bowling we experience at Windsor & Eton B.C and are well known for. We are not aware of any of our members having suffered from this terrible virus, although the vast majority of us fall, through age, into the ‘vulnerable’ category.
The Committee’s decision reflects our concerns, the very real possibility of raising the infection rate at this delicate time and the ability to ensure these very strict guidance measures are adhered to. As more information becomes available and Government guidelines are reviewed, we will revisit this decision.
Stay safe and well and be assured your welfare is at the heart of all our decision making.
A personal message from the committee
As the Coronavirus takes hold over the coming weeks, some members may need help and support.
If you need to self isolate and need help with shopping, (left at the front door) please don’t struggle.
Let us know, as other club members will offer such help.

THE WEBC CORONAVIRUS SONG 2020
Bowlers who bowl for Windsor
Are always very keen
Around about mid-April
To get out on the green
But this year Coronavirus
Is making us stay at home
And our bowls club cannot open
As we're not allowed to roam.
So let's look for some good things-
The spring clean we can duck -
And there's no catering rota -
Now there's a bit of luck!
One day we'll be back bowling
The message is clear 'til then
Stay home, Stay safe, and Stay well
Till we're on the green again!
