Introducing your new website

We are very pleased to announce that our new and improved website is, as you see, now live.

  • Logins – You do not need a login or password to access the website per se, but you do need a password to access the Members Area. You will have been advised of this password already
  • Members Area* – Please pay particular attention to the Members Area (see below) as this is where you can find much of the information most pertinent to you as a member
  • Site security – As before, site security is important and therefore we have divided the site into an ‘open’ area, directed at the public at large, and a Members Area which, as the name suggests, is restricted to eligible members.
  • Events & Social – We now have a better events and social area where all events other than league or friendly match events are listed. Some events are listed for information only and some will be for members wishing to register for members-only events such as Quiz nights or One-Day events for example.
  • Quick links – It is recognised that during the season, members may wish to access certain areas of the website more frequently than others. Two we have initially identified are the BOWLR rink booking area/Membership list, and the new Match [availability/selection] facility. Therefore, we have put quick links for these at the top of the Home page
  • Mobiles and Tablets – Mobile access is improved. Phones are small and narrow, and this restricts what can be displayed. If your phone settings allow, you can tilt your phone and see a lot more of a page than you would otherwise. Look at Fixtures/Lawn Bowling as an example. Some phones, in portrait mode, only show columns up to ‘Time’. Tilted into landscape mode a user can see all the columns.

We welcome any constructive feedback or ideas to improve it. Is there something you feel SHOULD be on the site? Is there something already on the site you feel could be improved. If so, how?
