Close Season Premises Inspections
Regular inspection of our premises with a frequency of not more than every 7 days during the closed (Winter) season, including identifying, reporting and remedying any area of concern, is an insurance-approved/-mandated process for the Club, as well as being prudent. It is performed by Executive Committee Members on a rota basis.
Exceptionally during the COVID Emergency of 2020, when our club remained closed during Spring, our premises were formally classified as 'unoccupied' from May 2020 onward, and we had a similar insurance-mandated need to perform these inspections with a frequency of not more than every 7 days. During the 'Limited Opening' Scheme from 2H June 2020 till season-end, when we were classified as 'part-unoccupied', these inspections continued not only for for all 'unoccupied' parts of our premises, but also in practice for the whole premises. Those performing premises inspections should have noted that inspections that were carried out during this Scheme must not have been performed while a Bowling Session was in progress.
Details, including the rotas, are available in the below document, for Executive Committee Members.
The documents are password-protected, and for Executive Committee Members' use only. Those wishing to be reminded of the password should contact the Assistant Secretary.
Supplementary Tasks - 'Limited Opening' Scheme
During the 'Limited Opening' Scheme, these inspections by Executive Committee Members also included specific tasks as part of the Committee's responsibility under the management of the Scheme. These extra tasks are documented here.
