To All Members
It is with great regret that as most of you will be aware the Scunthorpe and District Bowls League in line with Bowls England instructions have cancelled the 2020 bowling season. They will review the situation again at the beginning of June with maybe the possibility of a mini season starting in July through into September.
As the present situation shows no sign of improving Messingham Bowls Club have cancelled the “Get Together Meeting” due to be held on the 5th April.
In line with government social distancing, again with great regret the bowling green will remain closed for all bowling. We will attempt to maintain the green but not to a bowling standard in line with Bowls England guide lines, this will be reviewed on a month to month basis again following government guidelines.
Some members have suggested that it could kept open for social bowling.
It was felt the even if the social distancing was adhered to, we would be unable to protect the safety and well-being of our members as they would be using not only their own equipment but the clubs jacks, pushers, mats etc. With this in mind the green will stay closed.
We will be cancelling the Invitation Day with the view if possible, holding it at the back end of the season.
We are not cancelling the two gala days at this moment but this will be reviewed at a later date.
A decision will be made on Membership fees, as and when we have a clearer picture on whether we will be able to bowl later on in the year.
Please keep safe during these difficult times.
Pre season meet up April 5th cancelled
Centenary Event (Charity Match) May 23rd cancelled
Mixed Open Day July 26th to be reviewed later
Ladies Open day (ladies only this year) August 2nd to be reviewed later
