NOVEMBER 2018 AGM MEETING SUMMARY

  • Check marking to be every three ends (not five) with markers making best endeavours to position themselves close to corresponding opposition markers.
  • The league will be open to ladies on the same terms as for men.
  • All 17 existing teams expected to play in 2019, with 8 teams in Div1 and 9 in Div 2, as per 2018.
  • 2019 season calendar to be similar to 2018. Expected start of season to be Thurs 4th April for Div 2 and Thurs 11th April for Div 1.  The season will end on Thurs 3rd October with the Players of the Year competition.
  • It was noted that each club must have a Safeguarding Officer registered by 1st March 2019. If not, such clubs will be subject to a £25 fine, increasing by a further £25 for each succeeding 3 months without such a person.

LADIES FIRST WINS

Congratulations to Pat Acland (Formby Park B) and Sue Moorcroft (Moorside Park) who are the first two ladies to register wins in the Bootle Vets league. Which one can claim to be the actual first is not known, as both played in the middle four blocks.

SAFEGUARDING

From BCGBA: All clubs must have a Safeguarding Official by 1st March 2019. If the official is a member of more than one club then they can cover all clubs they play for.  If not, such clubs will be subject to a £25 fine, increasing by a further £25 for each succeeding 3 months without such a person, with the ultimate sanction of being barred from playing.

Just to remind you all, the recommended Action Plan for Clubs is as follows:

1. Identify an individual

2. Arrange for a DBS application to be completed through the BCGBA

3. Show the certificate to the County Safeguarding Officer / Evidence Checker / Counter Signatory.

4. Advise Club Members who the nominated Safeguarding Officer is.  This can be done by printing a copy of the Safeguarding Policy from the Safeguarding Website, adding the name of your Safeguarding Officer and then posting it on your Club notice board.

5. Ensure your Safeguarding Officer has a place on your committee to feedback any updates in policy.

6. Let the Merseyside Registrar have full details of the Safeguarding Officer for your Club. (This must be done by 30/6/2019 to avoid a fine)
