The following email was sent to as many members as possible on 14/8/20.

Dear Member

Firstly, we hope this email gets through and that we find you in good health, or at least as well as can be expected during this difficult time.

We realise you have not heard much from us in the last 5 months, but this is mainly because we have not had anything significant to pass onto you. Unfortunately, that situation hasn't really changed yet.

Farnborough Leisure Centre (FLC) is still not open and we have no indication from Places for Pleasure/Leisure (P4P) or Rushmoor Borough Council (RBC) of when, or if, that situation will change. Consequently, we have not sent out the annual renewal forms or email and our online application system is not available yet. We can see no point in accepting renewals until we can offer at least some form of bowling. If, and when, FLC opens AND indoor bowling is permitted by P4P we will be in contact again.

We would be grateful if any of our members and in particular team captains who receive this would try to ensure that those without email and internet access were made aware of its contents.

Hoping to be in touch in the near future with some more positive news & dates.

Kind regards and keep safe.
Colin D Alcock
Hon. Treasurer

P.S. Regardless of the sender (various due to technical restrictions), please address any responses as shown below.
P.P.S. We are aware that some members still have bowls shoes etc.incarcerated in the locker rooms. As and when FLC reopens we will endeavour to assist in extracting them.

We are asking questions of the Council, and, with local elections due shortly, please ask your candidates/Ward Councillors what they are going to do about preserving bowling for the hundreds of older residents of Rushmoor who use this facility.
