Child Welfare
We are a Clubmark club and we adhere to the 'Safe Hands' Policy for Safeguarding Children in Cricket.

We are a Clubmark club and we adhere to the 'Safe Hands' Policy for Safeguarding Children in Cricket.  All of the Adults at the club who work with children and meet the necessary criteria are vetted by the ECB. This includes the enhanced DBS and 'Barred list' check (Formerly known as CRB checks).

Whilst we hope your child will be happy and content at the club, we understand that sometimes questions, concerns or difficulties may arise. Please feel able to raise these as soon as possible, so we can rectify things at the earliest opportunity. If you have a question regarding coaching, please approach the coach in the first instance. However, please do not interrupt coaching sessions, especially nets practice, as this may distract the coach when he or she needs to be supervising the children. Our coaches will be happy to speak to you before or after the training or at another convenient time.

If you have questions about kit requirements, training times, pick up arrangements again please speak to your child's coach in the first instance.

If you have any concern about your child or another child, or about the behaviour of any adult at the club, please speak to me, the Club Welfare officer – you can contact me on my mobile 07899957570 or home number on 01730 233361 or email (If your concern is about me, you may contact the County Welfare Officer Helen Wheeler 02380472002)

ECB's Safe Hands policy for safeguarding children in cricket, is available to view online at, or a copy is available at the club.

The club is always looking for parental help – please do consider helping out if you can!
