Wedmore Surgery

We have recieved this information and wanted to inform all members.

Statement re Temporary Diversion of Patient Care to Axbridge Surgery

As of Monday 23 March and until further notice, Wedmore Surgery will be closed and unmanned.  When the Covid-19 situation settles, we fully intend to re-open.  There are absolutely no plans to close the branch site permanently.  This step has been taken due to the current situation.

Please only call the surgery if you really need us for a medical reason.  Our call volumes are very high and we need to keep the lines as clear as possible for patients who are unwell.  

We are happy to answer questions if you really are unable to source the information you need yourself.  There is lots of information on our website which is updated regularly https://www.axbridgeandwedmoremedicalpractice.nhs.uk/

Thank you for your understanding, patience and kindness during this unprecedented period.   It is very much appreciated by all of our team.

 We really appreciate your support.

 Thank you

 Axbridge and Wedmore Medical Practice Team

COVID 19 – Club Shut down

                                        Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club  

 Coronavirus    update from the Bowls Club 20th March

The Clubhouse will be closed from this Sunday evening 22nd March, with periodic inspections by Officers of the Club to check the well being of the premises.

So, if members need to retrieve any belongings then please do so now.

Indoor Bowlsall indoor bowls is currently suspended until further notice and we will keep you advised if and when we are able to resume any indoor bowls later this summer. 

The cancellation of the Indoor Section AGM next month has left us without the formal vehicle to elect the Indoor Committee Officers for 2020/21, a Committee that needs to be in place in order to plan and organise the next 12 month indoor program. Further information on this topic and our proposals will be included in the next bulletin.

The SCIBA AGM in June is cancelled.

Outdoor Bowls – most league organisations including SBA and Weston & District League have formally advised Clubs that their league and cup season is cancelled, whilst the SBA suggest they will confirm regarding County Competitions, County Tour and County matches in the next few weeks

All the Isle of Wedmore Bowls Club’s organised outdoor matches/ fixtures can now be considered cancelled for the season,  

Should the Virus be under control in 2 to 3 months then the Club could arrange a program of bowls for the remaining month/s of the season. Any membership fee requested, would be reduced to reflect the number of month/s remaining for the season. Sadly, current media forecasts suggest the whole summer will be blank.

Outdoor Green – continues to be maintained by ASMC, keeping the green in good order hopefully in readiness for bowls later this summer, whilst minimising costs where possible. As members will appreciate the Club will have a severe loss of income this summer with loss of membership fees, bar income and fund raising income eg. Ladies Open Triples Tournament, income which assists in covering the significant expense of green maintenance. We should take note, that the Club are only able to continue to cover the current Club outgoings due the sound financial policies of your Management team and the Club’s “current” healthy reserves.    

Members are requested to continue to keep other members not on email informed.  

As the Coronavirus situation continues to evolve, we will keep you informed of any further Club changes.

Continue to keep safe

2020 League Fixtures

It is sad but all Outdoor league fixtures have been cancelled for the 2020 outdoor season. We have had confirmation from SBA that all County league matches are cancelled and we now know that the C&D and W&D men’s over 60’s tripples will not take place.

Lets just hope that by July we may be able to get out on the green and at least manage some bowling.

keep well and safe everyone

Coronavirus – update from the Bowls Club 17th March

The Clubhouse still remains open from about 8.30am as normal for members access and is locked up around 6pm. with the situation constantly under review.

However, complying with the latest Government advice to avoid non essential contact, the Club is now closed for all bowling activity

It is likely that the Clubhouse will be locked during the day in the very near future,

so if members need to retrieve any belongings then please do so now.

Outdoor membership renewals normally take place during April, which seems highly unlikely now according to the current predictions on restrictions being placed on the country’s population, especially those over 70 years old. It is more likely, if we are lucky, that members will get a part season outdoors and if so, then membership payments will be dealt with nearer that time. 

Members are requested to keep other members not on email informed.

We request that any members who have recently been abroad or in contact with a person who has contracted the virus, stay away from the Club for at least 2 weeks.

As the Coronavirus situation continues to evolve, we will keep you informed of any further Club changes, including the probable delay to the commencement of the outdoor season program.

Keep safe
