Coronavirus COVID-19

Following the UK Government guidance to step up measures to fight the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, reinforced by guidance from both the Scottish Government and Bowls Scotland, the Management Committee can now advise members that all scheduled Social Events at Lochee Bowling Club are cancelled until further notice.

Unfortunately, this includes Opening Day, which was due to take place on Saturday 11 April 2020 and the subsequent outdoor bowling season. We trust the membership will understand and fully support this decision.
At an emergency meeting of Bowls Scotland Board on Wednesday 18th March 2020 it was decided to cancel all National competitions for 2020. They are currently considering options for competitive bowls later in the season when/if there is a change in current circumstances.
Bowls Scotland fully understand that many clubs may suffer financial or operational difficulties due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and are also encouraging all Scottish bowlers to, where possible, continue to pay their membership fees for the upcoming season.
We recognise this is a worrying time for our membership and you will be concerned regarding family and friends. Our thoughts are with everyone and we would like to stress that we are here to provide support to every member at this very difficult time.

The Management Committee continues to prepare for season 2020 and in line with this, members who have not already done so are urged to pay their annual subscriptions. This will undoubtedly support the club during this challenging period where running costs will continue.

If you are unable to attend or if you have any concerns in relation to visiting the club to pay subscriptions, please contact any member of the Management Committee in the first instance and alternative arrangements will be made.

The situation regarding annual fees will be reviewed by the Management Committee as soon as we can fully assess the impact caused by the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

Please adhere to Government advice as we progress through this unprecedented situation. Your support and cooperation mean everything to us, and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you all back to the club for the remainder of the bowling season when it is safe to do so.
