Government of Jersey – Updated Advice

Anyone returning to Jersey, from any country, is now required to self isolate for 14 days.

In addition – Social Distancing is extended to people of all age groups and not just those Under 18 or Over 65.

Please follow the Government advice to help control and stop the virus getting out of hand on Jersey if not for yourselves but for our more “at risk” community and healthcare professionals.

If you are self isolating or social distancing and are “at risk” and need some help, please do email bowlsjersey@gmail.com and we will see what we can do to help you.

A Bowls Jersey First!

Bowls Jersey Management Committee last night met for the first time ever via Video Conference.

Preparations continue for the upcoming season in line with Government advice and common sense, but plans were discussed for helping our more “at risk” (and the wider community) and showcasing why Bowls really is the Community Sport. We will keep you posted of our plans, but in the meantime urge you to please keep safe, keep healthy and look after yourselves. Follow the guidelines and if we can do anything at all to help you, please reach out to bowlsjersey@gmail.com where we would be delighted to see what we can do to assist – even if you just want a chat.

Stay Safe, Be Kind and in a world where you can be anything – don’t be the person who buys more loo rolls than you need!
