Further to the Governments guidance updated on 26th March,they have confirmed that “all playgrounds, sports courts and pitches and outdoor gyms or similar”  must close.
As this instruction covers Crown Green Bowling we are letting you know that members should not access either of our Manor Park Bowling Greens until further notice.
Please keep safe everyone.

Bowling Season Suspended

From the British Crown Green Bowling Association


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
Chris Hasselby (BCGBA Chairman)

Ken’s funeral will be taking place on Wednesday 25th March at 1 pm at Central Methodist Church, Glossop. (next to the ambulance station)
Following the funeral everyone is invited to Windy Harbour.  If you wish to go to Windy Harbour could you contact Martin Coombes  who will relay numbers to the family for catering purposes.

Coronavirus – Advice from BCGBA

BCGBA_LogoAdvice from British Crown Green Bowling Association.  (12 March 2020)

Following a number of queries received by BCGBA, and the media attention surrounding Coronavirus, BCGBA wishes to advise that no events under its jurisdiction are affected at present.

BCGBA will continue to monitor the situation and further guidance will be issued at a later date if necessary.

For more information, please visit:…/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-t…

If you have a personal concern you should contact

If you have been asked to self isolate then you should follow the advice given by your GP or NHS111

It would be sensible to wash your hands before and after any game or practice session and the cleaning of jacks should be done on a regular basis. Contact between players should be reduced to a minimum. Disposable paper cloths for cleaning is recommended rather than a reusable one.

Care should also be taken with the use of bowls cleaning cloths and should be washed on a regular basis and probably best not to share with someone else

We have not received any additional advise from the government or NHS at present and will continue to monitor the situation.

Leagues will potentially need to review the rules on cancellation of matches should the situation change.

Be aware advice may change at any point

Additional Advice 12/3/2020

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms, however mild, such as a continuous cough or high temperature, must now stay at home for seven days.
