As you maybe aware Vera passed away last weekend .

The funeral ceremony will be at Gorleston Crematorium on the morning of Monday June 22nd at 10 a.m.

Due to the current restrictions on public gatherings and you wish to show your respects as a part of a club group, without being able to attend the ceremony, we are going to line the Windsor Road side of Braddock Road, keeping within safe social distancing guidelines, to say our goodbyes, in club shirts or jackets, if possible please?

We will give a respectful round of applause as the cortege passes by, if anyone deserves that tribute it's our Vera .

If we gather from 9.15 onwards, we can ensure we will be there before the cortege leaves the house.

The family have asked that no flowers be given but there is a donation website with Arthur Jary & Sons which will be open from now until around July 22nd.

All donations will be equally shared between the Stroke Association and Caister Bowls Club in line with family wishes.

We have been asked that when the situation allows, we hold a Vera Punchard Fun Day during next season, I'm sure that will be a very well attended function in loving memory of a very special lady.

The web address for memorial donations is []()

Please see Vera's funeral details as requested. Sorry I cain't be there but I will send you all move love, thinking of you Graham, your family and freinds at this sad time, your mum was one in a million, god bless you Vera 👏❤️👏❤️

I will always remember the sound of "well you bowled" booming across the green. It will be a lovely tribute to a stalwart of the Caister Bowls Club

Many thanks to the club members who turned up today to work on the Green.

We managed a full cut followed by a verticut in two directions and then another cut to remove any thatch brought to the surface.

Half of the paths are just about cleared of moss and weeds and work will continue over the next weeks to get the Green into a playable condition.Image attachment

As sent out today from the club!

**Caister Bowls Club - May 2020**

**PROVISIONAL PLAN FOR RE-OPENING FOR PLAY**

**In line with the government guidelines and advice from Bowls England (May 13th/14th) please note that we will be opening the club to paid members but not before the beginning of July 2020.**

**That potential opening date will be reviewed on a regular basis and will be announced when we are sure it is safe.**

**When the opening does take place , whenever that might be , all government guidelines still in place must be strictly followed.**

**Of course we need time to ensure that the green is fit for play and make sure all facilities are ready for safe use .(This will not initially include the bar .)**

**In order for that to be done we will be looking for volunteers to help with the work which will have to be carefully managed in order for those people to remain safe .**

**In addition we are conscious of the potential threat of a second spike of Covid19 occurring in the next few weeks after the relaxation announced by the government starting May 13.**

**As the majority of our members fall into a vulnerable category of one kind or another it would be irresponsible of us to consider re-opening until we are confident that it would be safe to do so.**

**As previously mentioned in communications regarding club fees from a few weeks ago ,we hope to run the club competitions in August if it is safe . Entries for that have now closed . The nature of those competitions makes social distancing reasonably easy.**

**We will arrange whatever play is possible as soon as it is safe to do so. We will provide hand cleansing liquids and disposable towels but we will not provide any other form of PPE.**

**We also need to ensure we have appropriate cleansing safety controls in place regarding the use of any club equipment (woods ,mats , jacks , scoreboards etc) .**

**Please let us know if and when you are able to volunteer to help so we can develop a plan for getting the club in shape to re-open.**

**In the meantime please STAY ALERT and STAY SAFE **

Competitions closed too early most people didn’t enter because of the unsureity of whether the green would open this season

If not playing till August no reason closing date couldn’t of been 1st July or just after when we knew what was happening

David I would suggest taking it up with the officers and the 1 committee member as per the e-mail bud, if they decided this they must have a reason?

I have sent an email

Did you know under Bowls England (EBA if I'm correct) there is a ruling for slow play in final stages of championships and competitions?

**The following shall be enforced in the final stages of all Bowls England National Championships and Competitions. Only the Tournament Director (or Nominated Deputy) can disqualify players.**

**1 Four‐Wood Singles** – Neither player may visit the head until both have delivered three bowls each. Should a player wish to visit the head prior to this point being reached the permission of the marker shall be obtained.

The maximum time that a player may deliberate before playing a bowl is two minutes, the time being calculated

from the time the previous bowl played came to rest. Should this rule be breached they shall be warned by the

marker. Any further non‐compliance shall be reported by the Marker to an Umpire in charge of the green. The

Tournament Director (or Nominated Deputy) may disqualify the offending player from taking any further part in the competition.

**2 Two‐Wood Singles** – Neither player may visit the head until both have delivered one bowl each. Should a player

wish to visit the head prior to this point being reached the permission of the marker shall be obtained. The

maximum time that a player may deliberate before playing a bowl is two minutes, the time being calculated from the time the previous bowl played came to rest. Should this rule be breached they shall be warned by the
