We have now received the grant from the Sports England scheme which is there to help sports clubs to resume playing, Covid safe, and we are getting ready to set up the club as an even safer environment than it was last year. Without this grant many of the items we have obtained, such as non touch soap and hand gel dispensers, infra-red head thermometer, anti viral wipes and foggers, would have been beyond the club’s finances. In addition we have ordered 2 x 2.5 mtr square gazebos for extra cover, as the pavilion will still have restricted use for a while. There will be an extractor fan installed in the pavilion to allow greater air flow.
Work needs to be done on the flower beds and some members have already started on the preparation. We will also be working on the paving to make it safe (thanks again to Calne Council for their grant),
We now await Bowls England instructions to get started and we will be ready to welcome members and visitors to our green in a safe and attractive environment to play the wonderful game of bowls.
