Request of Members

Volunteer as a General Rollup Duty Person - 2 hr sessions

With our winter programme due to commence under level 2 restrictions we require a number of members to make themselves available as a duty person for two-hour sessions to ensure that the strict conditions outlined above are adhered to by all bowlers.

This is not an onerous task but extremely essential for us to operate under (hopefully) level 2 conditions only.

  • This request relates to general rollups only, not organized bowls and tournaments

  • This is to ensure that the ongoing good health & safety of all bowlers is maintained

Please respond by email to the club and advise when you can assist, we will contact you back with more detail and advise further.

All conditions as above with tournaments to start the first Saturday in June.
