To County Secretaries, Management and Officers.


Following the Government announcement this afternoon it is with great sadness that we now have to suspend all bowling for the foreseeable future.


Based on the advice announced we need to avoid all mass gatherings and sporting event as these will no longer be supported by the emergency services. 


If anyone within your household has symptoms then the whole family need to isolate for 14 days.


Limit social contact wherever possible and encourage working from home. 


At risk groups - those over 70 and those with medical conditions need to take additional care.


All BCGBA meetings should now be postponed as un-necessary travel should be avoided. Contact in Pubs, Clubs and restaurants to be avoided. 


Taking this all into account all leagues should now suspend matches until such time as we are given an all clear to resume competition.


All BCGBA and BCGLCC Competitions are now suspended until further notice this should include all qualifier events. 


As a Bowls community we need to look after our members and I encourage you to follow the advice being given and support those we are able to at this very difficult time. 


I will add links onto the website / face-book as these are updated. 


Please take care of yourself and stay safe.  


On behalf of the Management Committee BCGBA
