At an emergency Board meeting held today, Monday 16th March, the Wey Valley IBC Board of Directors have taken the very difficult decision to close the club from midnight today, (Monday 16th March) to end of the indoor season. This decision has not been taken lightly. We feel it is in the best interests of our members and also ties in with a number of other clubs. As some of you know the Daisy Chain Café has already closed, however, Bowlswear Direct is currently remaining open at this time.
The closure includes all leagues, competitions, friendly matches, coaching/taster sessions. The club will not be open for any social functions – this is a complete closure. It will also include the Summer season and the Wey Valley Open Singles (25th & 26th April).
If members wish to collect any personal belongings, then the doors will be open for the next two weeks Monday to Saturday 10am to 4pm and on Wednesday 18th and 25th evenings until 7.30pm.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this causes but we feel, in these exceptional circumstances, the priority is the welfare of our members, many of whom are in the high-risk category.
We appreciate that this brings an unsatisfactory ending to the season but feel member welfare must be paramount.
Club competitions are to be frozen at their current state and the aim will be to complete these early in the new season. This includes the remaining semi and finals to be played. We understand that there will be many questions which we will try to deal with in a timely manner, but ask for your understanding during an unprecedented time for us all.
Please ensure that all questions are emailed to the following address – firstname.lastname@example.org
We would be grateful if you could pass this message on to any other members that you know who are not on email or have access to the website.
With very best wishes,
Wey Valley IBC – Board of Directors
