SHANKLIN BOWLING GREEN
Club re-opening - It’s good to be back Plans were underway to get the bowling club ready for re-opening on 4th July. Your Management Committee have agreed to allow the club hosue and bar to open, however the kitchen and changing rooms will remain closed. To comply with the Back2Bowls guidelines new measures have been put in place to ensure members and visitors are kapt as safe as possible. Full details of the new measures have been emailed to all members and a copy is availabe in the clubhouse and on the website. Inter-Club Triples Competition The men have been proactive, and with the help of the County Administrator Terry Thorner have managed to organise a Triples competition between, Plessey, Cowes Medina, Ryde, Ventnor, Shanklin A and Shanklin B. Dates for these fixtures are:
Don't forget to contact Phil, should you want to have a roll up at the club which is now underway.

JOBS IN THE GARDEN We have been fortunate with the weather recently so the gardens must be looking pristine, however there must be loads of jobs that we have always put off for another day so now is the chance to get stuck in. Don’t forget to send your pictures of the Window boxes, Balcony “buds” and Garden makeovers to the Website.
HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?
S.B.C PHOTO GALLERY Keep the pictures coming .. “Lock Down Lunacy” “Hair Cut Secrets” “Top Tips” any photographs for the members to see just send them to ces.tibbitts@gmail.com who will upload them to the website. If it creates a laugh in these times then even better. Dont be afraid send em in ! ***
REMEMBER FOLK’S STAY SAFE Don’t forget you need a mask to go in a shop from 24th July. Keep washing your hands to your favourite tune for 20 seconds, keep to the 2 metre/1 metre plus distance rules especially now after we are all allowed out ! Watch out for the “nudger's” with their trolleys in your back and keep an eye open for queue jumpers!
“Amazing what you can do with sand and cement” In a previous newsletter Andy Eyres had started to build a patio area in his garden. He got so far then “lockdown” and he couldn’t finish the job due to supplies of sand and cement. Now he’s got the sand and cement needed to finish the project.
OUR COMMUNITY In these times it’s all about Community so let’s all support all our independent businesses and I would hope at the next club open day (when ever that is) we can invite all these business people to our club to give a big thanks and perhaps a glass of something! Continuing on the subject of Community don’t forget your local community radio station Vectis Radio F.M 104.6 and On-Line click on the logo to listen
This fine Station does a lot for the community and plays some exceptional music, and don’t forget our very own Ron Leleux hits the airwaves every Monday with the Mid Morning show 10-1pm and Fridays 10-12noon !! ***

Club Open Pairs Competition A great response from the members. Thanks to everyone for making the effort. Just goes to show, the virus may have curtailed our bowling activities but members are determined to get Back2Bowls and some form of normality. Over 20 entries were received but regretfully it was necessary to close the invite early otherwise we would not have been able to get all the games in. The fixture list is now on the website and when we get underway a league table will also be available for you to keep up to date with your pairs position. Providing we can observe the guidelines in place at the time, all the pairs entrants are invited to the club at 4pm for the final day of the pairs (13th September) to enjoy a celebratory drink in celebration of a successful campaign.
Open Pairs Fixtures  > Open Pairs Fixtures  >
Indoor Section The club are hoping to run an Indoor Daily and Evening Triple League for the coming winter months. The Indoor Committee are working on ways this can be achieved in accordance with Back2Bowls guidlines. Further updates will be posted on the website.
