Hi

Following further updates from central government and the restrictions on movement that have been imposed Fylde Council have made the decision to close the council owned bowling greens for the foreseeable future .

As an authority we are working hard through difficult times which are far reaching and ever changing,which we are reviewing on a daily basis and as such we will keep partners,community groups and residents informed via the council website and social media pages.

 

This pandemic has significantly reduced the councils workforce which in turn has affected a number of council services,cemeteries and welfare work to support the most vulnerable within our community and this has seen some grounds maintenance staff taking on other prioritised rolls.

 

This has meant the daily maintenance of the greens will be reduced through this indefinite

period.it has been agreed that our sports turf sites which include tennis courts ,putting greens

and bowling greens will have a weekly cut which will be reviewed regularly to ensure the continued delivery of our prioritised services.

As a result of the indefinite closure of the bowling greens Fylde Council have agreed to refund or defer any annual contracts that have been purchased for the 2020/2021 season.With this in mind could I ask for all communication through a single representative of each club to limit the amount of individual phone calls,emails or visits that members of your club may want to do and I will make the necessary arrangement with each clubs to arrange refunds or defer payments to do so.

 

My last point will be to make each club aware that even if the movement restrictions are lifted we may not be in a position for the bowling greens to be used and as such we ask each club to wait for official updates before allowing their members to access the greens.

 

Also I have had communication from Patrick and Amy Docherty stating that there should be no volunteer work carried out by club members on or around the green areas. 

From LANCASHIRE CONSTABULARY FRAUD PREVENTION COVID-19

 

Please be aware of a scam whereby persons knocking on doors claiming to be selling coronavirus tests.Obviously these are fakes and the people that are doing this are trying to make money out of other people's fears and illnesses which is terrible.

Criminals are experts at impersonating people,organisations and the police so please be very vigilant against fraud,particularly about sharing your financial and personal information,as criminals seek to capitalise on the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

STOP: Take a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe.

PROTECT: Contact your bank immediately if you think you've fallen for a scam and report it to Action Fraud.

your bank will never ask you to transfer money or move it to a safe account.

 

Your Chairman Keith Whittle wishes all members of the club to stay safe and follow guidelines from the government and we will win this fight,any member struggling in any way,such as shopping please contact the website or ring him and he will organise the best way he can!
