The government have stated that, from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, you must:

  1. Stay at home, except for specific purposes.
  2. Avoid meeting people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.
  3. Close certain businesses and venues.
We wish all members and friends well.  We will continue to follow Government advice on the coronavirus outbreak and post any updates regarding the club premises on this website. 

Club Re-opening - Latest Update regarding Covid 19

posted 15 Sept 2020, 00:32 by Francis Czuba   [ updated 18 Sept 2020, 02:39 ]

Bantham and Ongar Bowls Club recognises it has a duty of care to its members and groups hiring the hall,we take this very seriously. We therefore will be supporting and following the guidelines as laid out by Bowls England,the UK Government and Public Health England. These will obviously be changing as the national situation changes and we will monitor changes closely.

 

Bowling

 

01/06/2020

Following recent Sports England & Government advice and what we believe to be our duty to act responsibly towards our members and other facility users, we have decided that from tomorrow we will re-open the bowls green and allow members to resume bowling in a limited way. Following our risk assessment (See downloadable PDF below) booked rinks will be available for roll-ups only, following strict guidance issued to each member.

 

Hall Hire & Other Activities

 

10/08/2020

 

Following recent Government advice particularly in respect of community halls and what we believe to be our duty to act responsibly towards our members and other facility users, we have decided to re-open the Pavilion (Club house) in a limited way.  Groups and members hiring the building will be expected to comply with our newly revised Hire Policy which takes into account a full venue risk assessment. Each group using or hiring the hall is expected to also provide a detailed risk assessment of the activity being undertaken. In practice this will mean strict measures to reduce the spread of the virus, social distancing and a reduction in numbers. Unfortunately this may mean some of past regular activities may not restart. More information about using or hiring the club pavilion, including our risk assessment can be found on our  HALL HIRE page

 

We are arranging activities so that only one group is using the premises at any one time. Every person entering the premises are required to give their contact details for the purposes of keeping ‘Track & Trace’ records. We wish all members and friends well.  We will continue to follow Government advice on the coronavirus outbreak and post any updates regarding the club premises on our website.

Corona Virus - Covid-1

posted 14 Mar 2020, 03:05 by Francis Czuba   [ updated 14 Mar 2020, 03:19 ]


Bantham and Ongar Bowls Club recognises it has a duty of care to its members and we take this very seriously. We therefore will be supporting and following the guidelines as laid out by Public Health England. These will obviously be changing as the national situation changes and we will monitor these closely.

At present advice is to take basic hygiene measures, individuals should be washing their hands for at least 20 seconds with warm water and soap on a regular basis. To cough and sneeze into a tissue and dispose of it, if a tissue is not available, the crook of your arm should be used. Many people also feel safer avoiding personal contact (like shaking hands), so please at this time don’t be offended by this. Individuals are only trying to protect themselves and others from the spread of the virus but to continue with a normal daily life.

In the clubhouse both the ladies and gents toilets provide washing facilities with anti-bacterial hand wash, there are also bins for the disposal of tissues. We encourage all users of the club to make regular use of these when visiting. We are also displaying NHS posters advising on hygiene protection measures. 


We ask people to act sensibly. Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
  •  a high temperature - you feel hot to touch on your chest or back, 
  • a new, continuous cough - this means you've started coughing repeatedly.  
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.  You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're at home.  Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.

This and further advice and information on the Corona Virus can be obtained by looking at the NHS Website (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/)


Keep Well !

The Management Committee.
