From Monday 29th March we are now allowed to play bowls, with up to 6 players on a rink with the adjacent rink vacant. The green is now available for play. Social distancing rules must be observed. Please continue to observe good hygiene practices.
The club house facilities and the old pavilion remain closed; there will be no toilet or kitchen facilities. Mats and jacks can be obtained from the lock box on the veranda. Only 6 players on a rink and use alternate rinks. Maintain social distancing and sanitise hands and equipment. Bowls and shoes cannot be left in the clubhouse, they must be taken home. Only come to play bowls, don’t come to socialise.
Any non member who would like to try the game can contact Brian via firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07745474117 We are always keen to have new players of all ages and abilities. Equipment and bowls can be provided. Why not give it a go, you never know, you might enjoy it.

Update March 2021
Please see the statement from Bowls England on their website. In short, all National and County competitions are intended to go ahead this year, but with some revision to format and timing.
The club intends to take part in any leagues that go ahead provided that any ongoing restrictions can be complied with.
We intend to organise some internal club leagues to provide some focus for members until the formal leagues begin. I will let you know further details when they are available.
We hope to open the green shortly for casual play, when I have produced a policy document to cover the ongoing restrictions.
Stay healthy, stay fit, and stay safe. Brian
Pelton Fell ladies held a coffee morning on Tuesday 3rd March 2020, in Chester le Street chapel. This was in aid of their nominated charity for this year which is "Heel and Toe". This is a local charity based in Pelton which provides help and support for children suffering with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities. They did very well raising around £300. Well done to everyone who helped in any way.
During the winter months Carpet bowls is played in the club pavilion. Casual bowls sessions are held on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, and all are welcome. They also play in the Durham and District Carpet Bowls league. Why not come along and have a go.
Ladies Lady bowlers required to play in lady only, and/or mixed leagues, as well as national competitions. Come along and have a go.
The bowls pavilion is available to hire for private functions, email email@example.com for details
We had a visitor to Pelton Fell recently. This lady is the daughter of one of our lady members. She plays bowls at National level. So don't give me reasons why you cannot play bowls.
The park is run by volunteers. If anyone is interested and available to help opening the park gates during the summer months, then please get in touch
