Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced yesterday (23rd June) that pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants will be able to reopen on 4th July.
We are currently awaiting clarification from the Government as to whether this will mean any change to the current limit on use of clubhouses, bars and changing rooms for our member clubs. The Government guidance for outdoor sports facilities, including bowls clubs, currently states: “Bars and clubhouses at outdoor sports facilities must remain closed other than for takeaway to be consumed off site.”
We shall circulate a further update once a response is received.
Let’s hope Bowls England can get some good news for clubhouses even if we have to have a one way circuit and restrictions on numbers in the changing rooms.
