When to wear a face covering

 

In England, you must wear a face covering in the following indoor settings (a list of examples for each is included in the brackets):

  • public transport (aeroplanes, trains, trams and buses)
  • transport hubs (airports, rail and tram stations and terminals, maritime ports and terminals, bus and coach stations and terminals)
  • shops and supermarkets (places which offer goods or services for retail sale or hire)
  • shopping centres (malls and indoor markets)
  • auction houses
  • premises providing professional, legal or financial services (post offices, banks, building societies, high-street solicitors and accountants, credit unions, short-term loan providers, savings clubs and money service businesses)
  • premises providing personal care and beauty treatments (hair salons, barbers, nail salons, massage centres, tattoo and piercing parlours)
  • premises providing veterinary services
  • visitor attractions and entertainment venues (museums, galleries, cinemas, theatres, concert halls, cultural and heritage sites, aquariums, indoor zoos and visitor farms, bingo halls, amusement arcades, adventure activity centres, indoor sports stadiums, funfairs, theme parks, casinos, skating rinks, bowling alleys, indoor play areas including soft-play areas)
  • libraries and public reading rooms
  • places of worship
  • funeral service providers (funeral homes, crematoria and burial ground chapels)
  • community centres, youth centres and social clubs
  • exhibition halls and conference centres
  • public areas in hotels and hostels
  • storage and distribution facilities

You are expected to wear a face covering before entering any of these settings and must keep it on until you leave unless there is a reasonable excuse for removing it. More detailed advice on the application of these requirements in different settings can be found in the Government’s guidance for working safely.

You should also wear a face covering in indoor places not listed here where social distancing may be difficult and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

Face coverings are needed in NHS settings, including hospitals and primary or community care settings, such as GP surgeries. They are also advised to be worn in care homes.

NOTICE OF A.G.M.

 

The AGM will be held at Roundwood, in the Conference area, at 7.00 p.m. on the 22nd September.

We do not propose to link it with our Prizegiving and presentation, which we propose to hold later this year when (if) number restrictions are eased.

 

We shall have vacancies for two Trustees as Roger and Valerie are stepping down, a box for nominations (seconded) will be made available in the club house.

We shall also have vacancies on the Management Committee as Pam Bassham, Liz Warren and Chris Holmes are stepping down. A box for nominations (seconded)

will again be made available in the club house. 

 

 

 




The Committee has been made aware how strongly the members feel about the loss of a "social area" and proposed withdrawal of the bar.
 
We have made strong representation to our landlords (United Business & Leisure ) and they have reviewed their proposal, and reversed it.
The conference room will be an extension of our social area, though groupings will be controlled and smaller. Tap beers will not be available at the moment.
Payment will be by card, so no cash, and a tariff will be produced for display.
 
We (the Committee) will continue to liaise with UBL to ensure your club offers a safe and welcoming environment.
As the situation develops, we will try to stay positive and react according.
 
 
 
 



We are sad to inform everybody that Bill Tyce has passed away. Bill was a member of the club for many years and will be greatly missed. We send our condolences to Bill's family and to Barbara.
 
 
 
 



Roundwood will be open on the 24 June for 2 hours, from 1.30 pm - 3.30 pm, for members wishing to collect anything from their lockers. Please ensure you follow social distancing whilst in the club.
 
 
 
 



As yet there is no definitive date for re-opening the club and for the resumption of Indoor Bowls, but the committee are planning how we work with any controls required, to protect our members, when we are allowed to start bowling again.
 
Please keep an eye on this website which we will use to keep you up to date.
 
 
 



We trust all our members are keeping healthy and as fit as possible during these weeks of social distancing. We look forward to seeing everyone when the club eventually reopens.
 
Looking to the future - would teams wishing to enter the winter leagues please return their registrations forms as soon as possible. Anyone without an entry form can email Barry Stiles at barry.stiles@outlook.com

On Sunday 28 April, over 30 members and wives of the Men's B team, who finished third in Division 3 North of the County League, held an end of season lunch at Wensum Valley Hotel and Country Club. A good time was had by all and thanks to Thelma, Geoff and Frank for arranging.
 
The out-door season has now commenced with Roundwood members playing for various clubs including Carters, Reepham Nomads, Anglia Windows, Lakeside, Bawdswell, Easton and Cawston. All clubs seek additional players and anyone interested in playing outdoors can be accommodated.
 
 

 




There is now a new page on the website. It is called 'For Sale' and is available for anyone to have bowls items for sale post posted.  Details to Rob Hoffman.

 

 




Roundwood Bowls Club is an indoor bowls club with just under 400 members playing in friendly roll ups, internal leagues and county competitions. With over 60 members in their eighties, some of whom find it difficult to play for two hours, it was decided to look into providing a wheelchair to help them continue bowling. We quickly discovered that the cost of a chair, £2500, was beyond our means, so we started fundraising. Six months later, thanks to the generosity of the following people and organisations, Tesco (Drayton), Taverham Parish Council, Yorkshire Building Society, Taverham Lions, John Jarrold Trust, Mike Carey and Roundwood Social Club, we have four members currently using the chair and we are looking to purchase a second one this year.

Thanks are also due to Sue Hunter who, working enthusiastically and vigorously, was responsible not only for finding the sponsors but also for organising money raising events.
