League big guns Wrockwardine Wood club led the way – in more ways than one – when it came to re-opening of greens.

Wrockite bowlers were allowed back on the Telford club’s two greens from day one on Wednesday 13th May, thanks to the efforts of chairperson Steve Robert and secretary Sophie Meredith.

They carried out a risk assessment and also devised an on-line bookings system for members to be allocated practice times, all in the space of 24 hours.

“A risk assessment has been completed and we have created an on-line booking service on the club’s website to ensure we comply with the BCGBA guidelines for re-opening,” said a Wrockites spokesperson.

And then Steve and Sophie helped a number of other Shropshire clubs to set up their own booking-in system, which is required so that everyone is traceable.

“We have received some very positive feedback, both internal and external, regarding our swift and initiative approach to opening our greens safely - and for this we should be really proud as a club,” added the spokesperson.

Not all Shropshire clubs have been able to re-open their greens, for a number of reasons, but among those that were quick off the mark were Bylet, Trench and Bridgnorth - followed by the likes of Albrighton and Bowring, with St Georges to follow on June 1..
