News Letter from Bowls Development Alliance(BDA)

I have just received a new letter from our secretary, Phyl, sent by BE on behalf of the Bowls Development Alliance, which is working with "Play Bowls". So rather than just publishing this month's new letter as requested I have added a Link to Play Bowls, simply because it contains lots of interesting items. To get to the actual newsletter use the new Play Bowls link and select "get-involved/newsletters" and look for the latest, dated April 2020. Happy exploring

Ron Eden, EBUA WEB Master.

BOWLS ENGLAND OFFICE CLOSURE The Bowls England Head Office will close with effect from close of business on Friday 20th March.

All staff (including Coach Bowls employees) will work from home in accordance with Government guidance with effect from Monday 23rd March - support for Clubs and County Associations will continue as normal.
Understandably, the Office has been inundated with enquiries from our clubs and county associations, and we will ensure that each and every enquiry is responded to. However, our priority on Friday 20th March will be ensuring that the staff team is able to work from home effectively from next Monday.

Members are requested not to call the Bowls England Head Office unless essential, but to contact Bowls England via the form available at www.bowlsengland.com/contact. Also see added link below.
