Next Meeting: AGM on Monday November 14th at 7:30pm at North Chadd

BCGBA and the County have always had the well-being of junior bowlers as a major priority. To this end, they have ensured that every club with a junior team has a Safeguarding Officer (formally Welfare officer) who had undertaken a Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS) formally the CRB. This is part of the BCGBA’s commitment to Safeguarding and they now extend this duty of care and Safeguarding to every club in the country.

EVERY CLUB & LEAGUE MUST have a named Safeguarding Person who has undergone a DBS check. The DBS check is free of charge. Forms can be downloaded from the info icon at the top of the page, once the form has been completed then you should contact Martin Goddard to continue. Further details will be sent out to all leagues & clubs shortly 

The 3-year renewal of DBS certificates is now being carried out please contact Martin Goddard to have your DBS renewed.

Will all clubs ask their safeguarding officer to check the date of issue on their DBS certificates, they only last for 3 years and they must be renewed before the bowling season starts if they are due, otherwise, the club may not be allowed to bowl
This is very important, I have 2 dates for renewal meetings February 26th, 2022, and March 19th at North Chadderton bowling and social club Broadway Chadderton Ol9 0EL between 10:00- 12:00 am if their safeguarding officer cannot find their certificate please let me know and I can check if it's due
