John Sly has kindly provided the following news:
I write to advise you of the passing of Stan Bailey earlier this month. Stan was a founder member of the County Officers Bowling Club, a past Chairman of the Club and Captain of the Veterans Team for many years. He was an active bowler until only three or four years ago but continued to take a keen interest in the Club. He had many little "sayings" about bowls such as "never be short when you are down" which he was always ready to pass on to younger less experienced bowlers.

Sadly, I have to announce that I have been informed that Arnie passed away this week.
Arnie was a well liked and much respected player with Stafford A, "a real character", and will be sadly missed.Sat Sep 5th
Sadly we have to announce that George passed away this morning.
George has been the long time secretary of Alstom Bowling Club
and the League Secretary of multiple Stafford bowling leagues. He was also Honorary President of the Veterans league.
In view of the continuing uncertainties and restrictions arising from the Covid-19 pandemic it has been decided to cancel the league for the 2020 season.

CORONAVIRUS LATEST SITUATION
Following the Government announcements at the start of the week about some relaxation to Lockdown, the BCGBA has circulated to all clubs some guidance on the reopening of greens on a very restricted basis.
It is for each club to make its decision as to whether to reopen and, if they do so, to ensure compliance with Government advice and BCGBA Guidance in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic.
As far as league and competition bowling is concerned, this is not allowed and is unlikely to be allowed in the near future. At a "Zoom" meeting of League Secretaries with the BCGBA Chief Executive held earlier this month it was thought unlikely that league bowling would resume before the late Summer at earliest. Bearing in mind that most players in our league are aged 70+ it is unlikely that our league will be among the first to resume.
League officers have spoken about this and, obviously, we would like to resume as soon as possible and we still hope to salvage something from the season but, to be absolutely clear, our health and safety is of paramount importance and we will only start again when we are cleared to do so by Government and in accordance with guidance from the BCGBA.
I am sorry to have to tell you that Lou Hancock passed away yesterday (Thursday). Lou played for Phoenix for many years and was also membership secretary there.
CORONAVIRUS- VETERANS LEAGUE SUSPENDED
Following todays Government announcement, the BCGBA has announced that all leagues should now suspend matches until the all clear is given to resume.
All league matches and competitions are, therefore, suspended and the league will not start on April 1st as scheduled.
At this stage it is impossible to say when and how fixtures will resume but I will continue to keep captains informed of developments and update the website.
Take care everyone and follow the official advice.
Brewood Bowling Club
Location/Access : Post Code ST19 9DY, opposite 42 Engleton Lane, Brewood. At the north end of the Jubilee Playing Fields (formally known as the Engleton Lane Playing Fields). If you use Google maps - change to satellite view and the position of the green in the park is really obvious. The green has its own gate so don’t go into the park by the Tennis Court/Kid’s play area entrance as you can’t get through. The club gate is normally locked – the home captain will aim to arrive about 45 minutes before the game is due to start to open up.
Parking: Parking is on the road usually on the same side as the green. We ask that where possible you car share, and that you don’t park in a continuous line but leave a break of a couple of spaces at some point, usually opposite the shared drive (roughly by the tree), so that it allows a pull in for cars to pass.
Facilities: We don’t yet have a club house. We do have a shelter to be shared by both teams. We have a proper toilet (even though it’s in a shed) and we will provide tea, coffee and biscuits.
We look forward to joining the league and meeting you all in the summer.
If you want any further details on the club then please contact Helen on email@example.com or in regard to arrangements for individual games then contact the captain/vice captain as listed in your league contact lists.
