UP TO DATE INFORMATION RE CORONAVIRUS AND OUR CLUB

  

Due to the present ongoing global situation this year’s open day at Subscription Bowling Club has been cancelled as have all coffee mornings for the foreseeable future. A decision on the future of the club and how it can be financed for the coming year will be made shortly and all members will be notified of the decision as soon as it is known. 


Meanwhile the club hopes that all members are taking notice and abiding the advice given by Government regarding self-isolation and social distancing. On a brighter note we look forward to seeing you all again very soon, hopefully a little later in the year.
