I am sorry to be the bearer of this news, but the BCGBA has issued the following statement, which effectively suspends all bowling for the foreseeable future:

CORONAVIRUS – BCGBA STATEMENT

Following the Government announcement this afternoon (16/03/2020) 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.

Please take care of yourself and stay safe.

On behalf of the Management Committee BCGBA

Chris Hasselby  (BCGBA Chairman)

Mark Bircumshaw (CEO)

All leagues and merits within Scarborough & District are therefore suspended with immediate effect.

We will obviously have to wait for further government guidance before we can recommence bowling, but work will be going on behind the scenes to try  have something ready to meet the circumstances that prevail when we (hopefully) resume.

In the meantime, the important thing is that we observe the guidance and keep ourselves safe.

Regards
