Green Maintenance

Hello all,
We hope you are all keeping well and being able to occupy yourself whilst we are closed.

We wanted to give you an update on things club related so… Whilst we cannot use our green we thought we would take this opportunity that has never been presented to us before to do some spring/summer maintenance.
Today the wonderful Pro-Turfcare Ltd started by mini coring the green which will allow for wetting agent too penetrate to the roots before applying a large top dressing and seeding.
Seeding at this time of the year is fantastic and will germinate fanatically as we water or regularly. This is extra work alongside our usually monthly professional care and our volunteer maintenance will continue (in fact increase) as we nurture along this development work.
This is all so when we all do get back to normality we will all see and appreciate the difference.

In the meantime, please don’t be a stranger and key us know how you are, what you’re all doing and if anyone requires assistance please do ask and we will do our best to help wherever possible.

Yours in sport,
EWEBC Committee

2020 Season

We hope this finds you all well and keeping safe. As you all know it looks like there will very little bowls this year, if any, but in the spirit of togetherness and looking after one another we wanted to raise our flag to lift moral and show that we will return as soon as it is safe to do so.

On the 11th April 2020 at 13:30 President John McCrae raised our flag high above our clubhouse. Although it may be a while until we all see this in person it is hoped that this can bring a little joy knowing that we will get back some day soon.

We would love to see any bowling selfies in your new 2020 bowling kit to see how you are all passing your time. If anyone reading this is not currently on our mailing list where we provide regular updates, please get in touch with us either by email : bowl@ewebc.co.uk
We also have a WhatsApp group where information is also distributed please text 0775 123 2475 stating your name to join this group.

Current clubhouse status

As you are most likely aware the UK and Scottish government strengthened there advice on the use of public spaces and as a result the committee have had close the doors to all members.

We have cancelled all upcoming private functions and will only change our status when it has been deemed safe to do so.

Our members safety and well-being is our priority and we do not wish to see any one struggle through this time. Please reach out to someone and ask for help should you need assistance. Our community should stick together through difficult times.

As you know we are awaiting further updates from the association’s and leagues we are affiliated with, our committee will still meet, discuss and deal with business details that we need to. We will publish further updates as and when we have them.

So for now, as stated above the clubhouse is CLOSED but please keep up to date with further announcements here

Yours in sport, EWEBC Committee

As a member, if you have a spare hour or two please get in touch and ask if there is anything you can do to help out your club.
