Today Bowls England have issued their response to the Coronavirus pandemic, which is basically cancelling the season. Please read their statement.
Bowls Bedfordshire have been awaiting Bowls England’s response before issuing our own reaction.
The decision has been made that we must, as we have a duty of care, follow the Bowls England guidance and therefore will be CANCELLING all Championships and Competitions run by the County, all Johns / Middleton Trial Matches, all Friendly matches (no decision has been made as yet with regard to the Eastern Counties League).
We have stopped the print run for the County Handbooks.
All Executive and Council Meetings will be cancelled until further notice.
Other activities such as the Ladies Tour, the Ladies Church Service, the Ladies 70th Anniversary Celebration Event, the County Lunch will either be postponed until later in the year or cancelled.
Like Bowls England, we will review the situation on 1st June to determine events after 1st July.
We intend to pay all clubs back the affiliation fees that have already been paid to both Bowls England and to the County.
Finally, on behalf of Bowls Bedfordshire , stay safe.
