Announcement from Holt BC relating to Coronavirus

COVID-19 Update – Holt BC Announcement

—————————————————————

As you are aware Bowls England has announced the cancellation of all its domestic events ahead of the 2020 bowls season in response to the latest Government advice and growing concerns from bowlers about how the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak will impact on our much loved game.

Due to this, to counter the spread of coronavirus, Holt Bowls Club is closed with immediate effect. The management committee will review the situation on an on-going basis and will be following guidance from Bowls England and Bowls Wiltshire.

Unfortunately, this leaves the club without any income stream for the foreseeable future, so the Management team has taken immediate actions to reduce all expenditure.

As a club we are remaining positive and optimistic in the fight against Coronavirus and are anticipating that when safe, social distancing will be relaxed and we can enjoy some time on the green this summer.

We are planning to run our annual gala day triples tournament in August and will endeavour to make this a fantastic day for all who are interested in taking part. We are also planning to honour some of our club fixtures later in the season in the hope that this becomes a realistic possibility.

We are asking all current members to support the club financially through this difficult time and ensure that, as a club, we make it to our centenary year in 2021.

Finally we are encouraging all members and fellow bowlers to keep an eye out for each other especially those bowlers who may live on their own. A telephone call, e‐mail or Skype to our cowls community will, we are sure, be welcomed at this time.

Please stay well, look after yourselves and those around you and most importantly, be safe!
