**************************************

***********Latest Covid-19 Update***********

A joint decision has been made between St Peters B.C. and Fairoak B.C.
that there will be NO BOWLS played on the green this season.

The reason for this is the legislation by the government over health and safety issues on the bowling green. We are already half way through the season and at present the council are not charging us for green maintenance but they are mowing the green once a week. However if we were to use the green, even for just a roll up, they would start cutting it two or three times a week and we would have to pay the usual green fees to the council.
We can only hope that matters will improve for 2021, but there is already a suggestion that there may not any League matches next year either.
However before that there is the indoor season to consider!!! We will have to wait and see what the decision will be made about that. I will keep you informed.

*****2020 OUTDOOR SUBSCRIPTIONS*****

To all members of Fairoak Bowling club - the impact of COVID-19 has  caused great concern on the ability to play bowls this Summer.

Our club will remain closed for now as we continue to comply with the Government directives on social isolation. A large percentage of our members are over 70 and therefore may be advised to continue with self isolation for longer. 

Therefore the decision has been taken to CANCEL the subscription fee for this year. We are in a fortunate position,(unlike private clubs) in that our overheads are mainly the upkeep of the green, and the council have decided to waive the cost of green maintenance this year.
Any payments already made for membership, competitions etc. will be held by the treasurer for now until things return to normal.   

We look forward to seeing all our members back together again when this crisis is over. Please use the guest book to communicate with fellow members.

Stay Safe and look after yourselves.
