THE EXTRA END – Bowls England Official Podcast | Data Protection (GDPR)

Data Protection was identified as an area of concern by many of our member clubs in the recent surveys that we have carried out. We’re here to help eradicate any nervousness surrounding the laws and in our next episode of ‘The Extra End’, our Director of Development, Adam Tanner, advises clubs on the key parts of the current data protection laws that are relevant to our clubs. The short podcast is ideal for all club and county administrators, focusing on the laws from a bowls-specific view, and we hope that any concerns you may have can be eased.

Keep Safe and Keep Fit

As you may recall when we first had a lockdown last year Bowls England put a number of keep fit videos amongst their podcasts. For ease, these are available at the link below.

In addition, Jean Lambourne has kindly sent us the item below about relaxation. Admittedly it is aimed at schools but then we are all kids at heart!
