COVID 19 Club closure update
Wednesday 30, December, 2020 ...
Dear Member

As you may be aware the club will be closed until further notice. All functions and events have been cancelled.

These are uncertain times for us all. Due to restrictions in place we will be unable to hold the fees nights but unfortunately we are asking members to support the club by paying fees as requested. You can renew your membership online and If you have access to online banking you can pay to Treasurers Account, Bankton Mains Bowling Club. Account number 00432365 sort code 80-08-80. Payment can also be made by cheque which can be posted to the club or if you are within walking distance, and out on your daily walk, just drop through the letter box.

If it would help members to pay by direct debit, again this can be set up through online banking, if you have access to this. If you can pay anything from £10 to £20 per month this would be greatly appreciated. Again if are going to do this please let me know.

We have been looking at the regular bills which we are required to pay and how much this will cost us a month. These monthly outgoings are in region of £1500. We have been looking at ways to reduce these payments.

We have checked the club insurance, and although we have a specified disease cover this does not cover any new pandemics. Apparently insurance companies changed their wording of policies following the Sars and E-Boli epidemics.

We received notification from Bowls Scotland and they will refund all Capitation and competition fees. They have said that they may be able to help out clubs financially if need be but as there are over 900 clubs in Scotland it would be their decision as to which clubs would receive this help.

WLBA have said they are retaining fees that have been paid to them. We will be following up on this.

I am still waiting to here back from Pro Turf, who maintain our green to see if they will be in a position to continue with this work, or if they will have to stop. This is our highest monthly outlay.

The committee would like to thank all the members who have paid so far. We do not know how long these restrictions will be in force or if the will become more severe. Please be assured that the committee are doing our best to keep the club going in light of the restrictions imposed.

We can only hope and pray for the time we will all be able to get back together, enjoy a game of bowls, have a wee drink, game of bingo and the quiz nights..... I will now have a bit of time on my hands to work on these quiz questions.

For those members who feel totally isolated, or have trouble getting out to the shops. Or just want a wee chat please feel free to contact me on 07719910630. Morris can also be contacted on 07912270777.

You can still email secretary@banktonmains.co.uk. We can access this remotely but we are unable to do group emails from home.

You will also be updated via our Facebook page and web site at www.banktonmains.co.uk.

Please stay safe
