WE HAVE VERY SAD NEWS FROM LOWTHER GARDENS OF PETER BROOKS WHO HAS SADLY PASSED AWAY 

LATEST INFORMATION FROM FYLDE BOROUGH COUNCIL

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT ANY PARK EMPLOYEES REGARDING WHEN BOWLING CAN COMMENCE,THE COMMITTEE WILL INFORM ALL MEMBERS WHEN THE COUNCIL FEELS ABLE TO OPEN THE GREENS.

THE COUNCIL HAVE STATED THEY ARE KEEN TO RESTORE BOWLING FACILITIES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THEY FEEL THAT THE WITHDRAWAL OF FACILITY HAS HAD A NEGATIVE EFFECT ON THE WELL BEING OF THE PLAYERS.HOWEVER BEARING IN MIND THE DIFFICULTY IN ADHERING TO SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES STILL IN FORCE IT WOULD NOT BE PERMISSABLE AT THIS TIME FOR BOWLING TO RECOMMENCE.

ONCE THE COUNCIL FEEL THEY ARE IN A POSITION TO RESTORE THE BOWLING FACILITIES IT WILL ONLY BE UNDERTAKEN FOLLOWING DISCUSSIONS WITH THE CLUBS OFFICIALS AS TO THE CLUB HAVING IN PLACE ANY NECESSARY SAFEGUARDING REQUIREMENTS (number of players,,social distancing and washing facilities)

THIS MEANS THAT SPORTS SUCH AS GOLF AND TENNIS ARE LIKELY TO BE RESTORED EARLIER THAN BOWLING DUE TO THOSE SPORTS BEING FAR EASIER TO MANAGE FROM A SOCIAL DISTANCING ASPECT THAN BOWLING

THE COUNCIL ENPHASISE TO ALL BOWLERS FOR PATIENCE AND ASSURE THEM THAT THEY ARE NOT FORGOTTEN AND BOWLING WILL BE RESTORED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

 


Following the government announcement on 10th May regarding the relaxation of the Covid 19 rules on social activities,there has been several enquiries asking when members can resume bowling.

Firstly the league is suspended for an indefinite period,secondly even though family members can join in social  activities together the Bowling greens remain closed.

Ashton Gardens bowling greens are council owned and until the council announce the opening of the greens no one has permission to use them.

The council will no doubt inform the club when a date is set for the opening of the greens,but there will then be a fee to pay by members and the public before we can use the greens.

ANY FURTHER INFORMATION WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON THIS WEBSITE AS SOON AS IT IS RECEIVED.

PLEASE STICK TO SOCIAL DISTANCING AND STAY SAFE !

 


PLEASE NOTE             SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

 

THE MIXED LEAGUE 2020 SEASON HAS NOW BEEN ABANDONED,THERE WILL BE NO MIXED LEAGUE MATCHES or COMPETITIONS THIS SEASON.

ALL FEES FOR 2020 WILL BE CARRIED FORWARD TO THE 2021 SEASON.

STAY SAFE.THANK YOU !
