Bowls England Update
Following the statement by the Government yesterday concerning further slight relaxations of the Social distancing guidelines in England, Bowls England have issued the following:
"As I am sure you are aware, the Prime Minister last night announced an easing of restrictions to enable groups of up to six people to meet outside.
However, at the time of writing the current Government guidance for lawn bowls continues to state:
“You can play lawn bowls where facilities have reopened, but you can only take part in these activities by yourself, or with members of your household or with 1 person outside of your household, as long as you are able to maintain social distancing.”
We are seeking clarification from Government on whether the announcement last night will lead to any relaxation in the current guidance for exercise and will update you in due course. For information, earlier this week we wrote to Sport England to request that dispensation be given to allow pairs play between members of two or more households and a response on this is awaited." It would be appreciated if you could circulate this update to all clubs as a matter of urgency.
