I hope you are all well and looking after yourselves in these troubled times.
I am getting quite a few questions coming in from members about what the bowls season future looks like this year.
So initially I am going to tell you the facts that have passed on to me from the various league and cup representatives.
Club Secretaries were also asked by the League secretary for any feedback on the above decision (5) from the league. This is what I sent:-
“ I am personally a little surprised that the league is even thinking about playing this season.
From this weekend vulnerable people (over 70’s) are supposed to isolate for 12-14, weeks, that would be a large percentage of our membership at Yaxley.
The peak of the outbreak is also expected to be in 12-14 weeks, so I’m guessing that this isolation will go on for a lot longer than that! “
So what is happening next from Yaxley’s perspective:
We have a committee meeting meeting planned for the 6th April, but I think we need to make decisions before then, particularly on:
To this end, I will be emailing the committee with some thoughts that we can hopeful come to a consensus on via email.
(I do not want to put anyone a risk with face-to-face meetings)
As soon as we have some decisions I will inform you all. Please pass these key messages on to anyone you know that does not have access to email - by phone not face-to-face!
And if you have anything you wish me to communicate on to the committee or other members, please forward it to me.

As members of Yaxley Broadway, we all enjoy the excellent facilities the club offers. We do sometimes forget the amount of work it takes to keep the club in the condition we all enjoy. This the work is done on a voluntary basis; unfortunately, this tends to be by the same few individuals.
John Thurston will be organising ongoing working parties in April/May to help with:
Woodwork by hedge needs to be replaced that the slabs stand on.
Trees - near rink 6 need pollarding.
Ash trees near clubhouse need trimming back, or taking down.
Slabs need leveling near clubhouse.
Shed at back of pavilion has leaky roof that needs fixing.
The pavilion needs re-weather-proofing.
If you feel you can help in any way please contact John Tel: 705925
