Secretary's News 2020 Season
There is not a lot to report on the bowls front. Bowls England and Essex County are in the process of refunding affiliation and competition monies to clubs: the local leagues are pretty silent but may need to start considering how to make use of the 2nd half of the season should some degree of normality return by end June:and the Council have yet to open negotiations on our new lease. . The Ladies Open Day has been cancelled and the Triples event planned by the mens section has been put on ice. We will want to open the Club as soon as possible but before that we will need a deep clean of the premises and some changes to ensure that the club remains safe to members and guests. We will need a work party once we have the green light so watch this space. In the meantime ,I'll share with you my favourite corona - verse.
