This is to let you know that, following a number of requests from members, the committee has decided that we can play Triples on rinks as from this Monday, 22 June. Although it was due to be discussed at next Friday’s meeting, it was felt that Triples could go ahead sooner than planned.
HOWEVER, I have been asked to remind everybody coming down to the green about the guidelines which are necessary for our safety, especially:
- Keep your social distance (whatever that will be by next week!) which will be a bit more difficult if you are playing Triples.
- Avoid numerous people touching the mats and jacks, and other players’ bowls
- Ensure that the mats and jacks are sanitised after each session (and preferably before you play) then returned to the correct places, i.e. mats on the bank and jacks to the box by the shed
REMEMBER, it is in everyone’s interest to keep safe – if you see someone forgetting to do the right thing, help them by giving a ‘gentle reminder’, because we all get it wrong at times!
The green will have to be closed immediately to all of us, should the worst happen because we do not adhere to the guidelines, and someone does go down with the virus!
