How to run a business in lockdown: Whitefield’s 138 year-old bowling club

Whitefield Bowling Club has recently been featured in an article by Tide Business Banking, looking at the difficulties faced running a sports club during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nearly 800 Tide members run sports clubs or businesses, and hundreds more run other recreation activity businesses, either self-employed or running a company. Many found their work paralysed in March 2020 when, to slow down the spread of coronavirus, the Government ordered clubs, gyms and leisure facilities to close and gatherings to be cancelled.

Tide member David Bevan is the Company Secretary/Director and one of three Trustees of Whitefield Bowling Club, near Bury in Greater Manchester.
