SPORTS ENGLAND GRANT
The Downsman has been progressing design and funding options to extend facilities at the club including capacity for a 2nd short mat and larger changing rooms.
The club is extremely pleased to announce that we have been granted £45,000 from Sports England. This is a fantastic amount, especially in the current climate.
Once formal planning permission has been granted, the remaining funding will be sought in order to get the project underway.

The green is open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday afternoons 2pm to 6pm in slots 2 til 3; 3.30 til 4.30, 5 til 6. This allows time to arrive/depart safely and sanitize equipment before and after use which are all kept in a plastic crate outside the clubhouse.
Bowls England did issue further guidelines on July 31st, but mainly just re-iterates what we have in place with social distancing and cleaning of equipment and hands being key.
