We are pleased to announce that Malcolm Wragg has very kindly volunteered to fulfil the role of Outlane Bowling Club's very first Safeguarding Officer. We will be making his contact details available behind the bar in due course.
The role of a Safeguarding Officer is to be a point of contact and advice for any members or visitors who feel threatened, intimidated or uncomfortable while they are at the club. This is primarily aimed at children and vulnerable adults but the officer should be open to approach from anyone who feels they need them.
The bowling authorities, our club and other bowling clubs are all committed to the safety and welfare of their members and visitors.
Many thanks to Malcolm for offering to carry out this role.
As requested by many customers, during autumn 2016 Sky Sports was reintroduced and, unless you have been marooned on a desert island since May 2017, you're probably aware that Huddersfield Town are now in the Premier League. This means that more of their matches will appear on Sky Sports.
In the meantime there is the small matter of this summer's World Cup in Russia. The three England group matches will be shown live at the bowling club. These are:
England v Tunisia Monday 18th June, 7pm
England v Panama Sunday 24th June, 1pm
England v Belgium Thursday 28th June, 7pm
Naturally, we welcome well-behaved, respectful fans of all teams and all sports. Anyone who wishes to watch a particular match / event is welcome to enjoy it at the club, regardless of whether it is on Sky or on a terrestrial channel. If customer numbers are sufficient, for certain events the club opening hours could be extended. Posters around the club show imminent high-profile sporting fixtures covered by Sky that will be shown during club opening hours.
