British Crown Green Bowling Association

Covid 19 England lock down 5th November 2020

New National Restrictions from 5th November

 

Following a review of the guidance issued all community sporting activity is to close (Indoor and Outdoor). There are a few exemptions, but these do not apply to bowls.

 

We will continue to monitor any changes to the guidelines issued and update accordingly. You can leave home to exercise, but this does not include community or amateur sports. All Greens should therefore close until further notice.

 

Key Headline message:

 

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection. That is why, from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2 December, the Government is taking the following action:

  1. Requiring people to stay at home, except for specific purposes.
  1. Preventing gathering with people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.
  1. Closing certain businesses and venues.

I'm writing to you in my role as Secretary of Lowther Gardens Bowling Club to ask for your support in opposing plans by Lancashire County Council to introduce Pay & Display parking restrictions in Lytham St Annes.  These would be installed the whole length of the promenade from the White Church to the far end of St Annes, and on 2 sides of Lowther Gardens: Woodville Terrace and West Beach in Lytham.

 

Full details can be found on the LCC website:

 

https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/roads-parking-and-travel/roads/roadworks-and-traffic-regulation-orders/permanent/proposed-traffic-regulation-orders-tros/ 

 

The order in question is: LSG4/894.10968/AFR

 

If these plans were implemented, cars would inevitably move onto nearby residential roads and make parking for bowlers even more difficult than it already is.  Either that or we (and you when you come to play at Lowther Gardens particular) would have to pay for parking when coming to bowl:

 

                              1hr £1.90, 2hrs £2.40, 3hrs £2.90, 4hrs £3.70, All Day £5.50

 

All this adding to the cost of our bowling!

 

We've been told that the more objections received, the less likely it is that these plans will be imposed on us. We'd be really grateful therefore if you could send in as many individual objections (specifying the grounds on which they are made) as soon as possible, quoting the order no.  LSG4/894.10968/AFR

 

Objections  can be emailed to  tro-consultation@lancashire.gov.uk 

or posted to The Director of Corporate Services, Lancashire County Council, P O Box78, County Hall, Preston, PR1 8XJ

 

These must be received before 19th November, so please support us ASAP

 

Many thanks in advance for your help,

 

Kind regards,
