Hope everyone is well.
Just been speaking to Andy Barry who confirmed that the Parks greens will not be re-opening under Phase 2 .
Andy also mentioned that there have been reports of players on Victoria Park and Alexandria Park.
I will update the Seniors webpage with the continued closure of the Parks greens and also a re-enforcement of the BCGBA guidelines that any bowlers transgressing the guidelines may well be barred from further bowling.
Government and BCGBA Guidelines Update 2
These have been distributed by John Heald Secretary W&NCBA to all clubs. If anyone wants a copy please contact me.
Main changes are an increase to 6 players maximum on the green and surrounds.
No 4 handers.
Toilets and washrooms may open provided a risk assessment has been done and full hygiene procedures are followed.
Latest update from Mark Bircumshaw, BCGBA Chief Executive just received via Keith Andrews, Lancashire Secretary.
1.6 If I can socially distance, can I play sport with someone I don’t live with? What about tennis / croquet / cricket / Frisbee?
You can exercise or play sport in groups of up to six people from other households, but should only do so where it is possible to maintain a 2 metre gap from those you do not live with.
People who play team sports can meet to train together and do things like conditioning or fitness sessions but they must be in separate groups of no more than six and must be 2 metres apart at all times. While groups could practice ball skills like passing and kicking, equipment sharing should be kept to a minimum and strong hand hygiene practices should be in place before and after. You can also play doubles tennis with people from outside of your household as long as you remain 2 metres apart as far as possible. Any equipment that is used should be cleaned frequently. Cleaning should be particularly thorough if it is to be used by someone else.
And if you are showing coronavirus symptoms, or if you or any of your household are self-isolating, you should stay at home - this is critical to staying safe and saving lives.
