Bowls England - Story of the Year Awards 2020
Biddenden Bowls Club was one of 5 finalists in the Bowls England Story of the Year Award 2020. Stories centred on how clubs and individuals managed the COVID challenges. Sadly although we had great public support from members, families, friends, village residents, squash and badminton players, we did not win in the public vote but it was a real honour for our club and a great achievement to reach the last 5. Sponsors Drakes Pride have presented the club with an umpires case with all the relevant equipment - what a great prize which our markers will really appreciate!!
COVID update 22nd July 2021
With effect from 19th July in line with Bowls England and Government Guidance the COVID restrictions and processes at the green will now cease. However all members and visitors are encouraged to continue to use hand sanitiser regularly and the QR codes.
We would however stress that our members (and visitors) all have very different feelings, concerns and reactions to the unlocking. So all members and visitors are asked to respect each other's feelings and responses to ensure that everyone continues to feel safe and welcome at the green. For more information visit the COVID 19 Guidance page.
