FROM TARPORLEY BC

To all visitors of Tarporley bowling club this season.

As you may well be aware, a development is on-going on the original Tarporley RBL site which is causing disruption to us all this bowling season.
Until mid May at the earliest there is no parking at the old Tarporley RBL site.

It has been kindly agreed with the Crown hotel opposite, that visiting clubs may park on their car park. Please be considerate about this parking arrangement, and try and use the back edge of the car park if at all possible.

The walk up to the green is along a public footpath which runs parallel to the old driveway leading up to the old car park.  At the top of this 'gully' there is a double gated entrance which obviously we will have opened. Please take care on this temporary pathway since this is quite uneven.
For early season night matches a torch would prove most useful if you have one...

Any issues you wish to discuss please feel free to call me, and I thank you for your patience with us during this difficult time.

Best regards,
Clive Wilson
Secretary Tarporley BC.

FROM LIMES BC
 
As you may be aware the Limes pub has been closed for a couple of months. It was due to reopen at the end of March but that has been put back a few weeks.
Consequently there is no access to the pub. The Club has got power to the lights and to the bowls hut which means that hot drinks will be available to players. The toilet facilities will be by use of a portaloo which the Club has brought in.
