Toilets & lockers: The Council has agreed to open the pavilion for access to the toilets and lockers only. No access to changing rooms or kitchen area.
Toilets: Only one person may use the facility at a time; if you have to wait please do so outside the pavilion; sanitiser spray/wipes etc will be provided; it is the responsibility of those using the toilets to sanitise before and after use.
Lockers: You may collect your bowls from your locker but please only two people at a time in each corridor. 2 - metre social distancing to be observed. Change your shoes when you get to the green.
Bookings are on a 'first come' basis, but should you be unlucky in securing your preferred slot, alternatives will be offered.
Contact Rosemary Wilman between 2-3pm or 6-7pm weekdays on 0208 394 0581. She will confirm there is a place available or offer alternatives; she will tell you who is the session steward.
If she is out when you call please call her later that day; do not leave a phone message. Please do not send email or text requests as she will not offer alternatives if the session is full.
Please book at least 48 hours in advance but earlier is advised, especially for the weekend sessions.
If you have to cancel please notify Rosemary as soon as possible to allow the space to be used by another bowler.
As with any roll-up, rink allocation will be random and the steward will advise you of your rink on arrival. Please only contact the steward if:
- you become unable to attend within 24 hours of your session (also notify Rosemary);
- if the session is likely to be rained off.
For further information please see the email from Janet Kentish dated 4 August 2020, and watch this space for further announcements.

Spanish Tour 2020 - Further Update

Portugal Tour 2019
"A good time was had by all" is how the club's autumn tour to Portugal, organised by men's club captain Keith Gomm, can be summed up. In his own words: "Despite losing 3 matches, all the greens were pretty good, the people we met were friendly and hospitable, and everyone got on well and had a good time. The majority were keen to do it again, and I intend arranging it for next year when everyone has chosen their preferred accommodation".
Our thanks to Keith for all his hard work in organising the trip, and to Rosemary Wilman for the photos, which can be seen in the Gallery.
