Dear Club Member

                              The Directors, Management Team and Staff of the Louth Indoor Bowling Club trust that you are staying safe and well through these challenging times although I am sure that you will be rather frustrated that our bowling interests have been curtailed at the present time.

 

      We have throughout the past months made every effort to maintain your safety with all the covid protocols in place and adapted to the various guidelines that have been advised by the national E.I.B.A. advisory body for bowling and I am sure that you have all appreciated the tremendous work that Simon, Tina and the team have carried out over the months when bowling was allowed to ensure that you enjoyed the sport and camaraderie that goes with it.

 

     The year 2020 has been challenging from a business point of view as well and whilst we have managed to secure the various grants and used the furlough schemes to support the business, we will unfortunately anticipate making a financial loss this year.

 

     With the current restrictions in place and uncertainty of exactly when a full bowling programme can be available along with the other income sources (catering, the bridge club activities, slimming world and the other uses of the function room) 2021 looks likely to be more challenging from a financial situation than we have known previously.

 

     Subscription for 2021 will be increased to £50.00 per year, locker fees will remain the same at £5.00 and fall due on the 1st January, however with the uncertainty of when we can restart bowling and to give time for the vaccination programme to roll out and members to be comfortable to return safely to the community environment payment can be made between 1st January and the 31st March when hopefully life will have returned to more normal lifestyle.

 

     We hopefully have understood the frustrations of the past months and I am sure you understand the situation from a business angle and naturally from a cash flow point of view early payments would be appreciated but not at the detriment of losing members until you are comfortable with the situation. Until we can reopen payments can be made by cheque

or by bank transfer to Louth & District Indoor Bowling Club Ltd account sort code 30-95-22 account number 00275056 and please quote your name on the payment.

 

     I sincerely hope you understand the situation and appreciate that we continue to provide all the facilities and bowling for each of you at a fair and reasonable cost given the current protocols and limited other sources of income.

 

    Your continued support and enjoyment of bowling is our primary aim and hope to be able to meet on the bowling green in the near future.

 

    Should you have any concerns or questions please contact Derek Blow on the following,

   We take the opportunity to wish you all the very best for Christmas and New Year

 

Stay safe and well.

 

Kind regards Derek Blow
