1 MATTERS ARISING FROM THOSE MINUTES

1.1

The meeting discussed the checking of scorecards from their submissions onto the Play-Cricket website from games in all Divisions in 2016.

DECISION: Michael Carlisle, Brian Hicklin, Andrew Rossington and David Parnham all agreed to play their part in this weekly task. Michael Carlisle would co-ordinate that small team to explain what was required and agree which person would deal with which Divisions.

 

1.2

As requested by the LMC, Richard Martin had arranged for a representation of the LMC to attend a  meeting at Edwinstowe CC on Wednesday 20th April 16 to discuss the content/format of future presentation evenings and the time of year most suitable.

DECISION: For information only

 

1.3

The previous meeting in February had discussed the roles of the club CWO and the training required, along with the availability of that training. It was established that a CWO needs 3 qualifications, namely:

 

1) DBS (Requires renewal every 3 years)

2) Attendance on a Safeguarding & Protecting Children Workshop or its refresher version SPC 2 – Reflecting on Practice

3) Attendance on the ECB Safe Hands workshop or its refresher version Safe Hands Refresher

 

Safe Hands & Safe Hands Refresher is an ECB course run by a local board and an attendance certificate is issued.

DECISION: The ECB already keep records of DBS checks. Clubs should keep a record of their CWO qualifications and training and where further details or training is requested, this should be done through the league and county welfare officers, so that arrangements can be made.
