Welfare Letter

Dear Parent / Carer

Wolvercote Cricket Club welcomes you and your children to the club. We hope that your child(ren) will enjoy being a club member and will enjoy the cricket coaching, training, and matches, as well as the social interactions available through the club. The aim of this letter is to provide welfare information that may be helpful to you as new members. Please do ask either James van Santen, Neil Sadler or Brian George (Welfare Officers) if you have other questions not answered in this letter.

The club is run by a number of volunteers. We welcome offers of help from all members, and hope that as you become part of the club you will feel able to get involved.

A full list of officers, committee members, coaches and officials are below:

Club Welfare Officers:

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 they need to be supervising the children. Our coaches will be happy to speak to you before or after training or at another convenient time.

If you have questions about kit requirements, training times, pick up arrangements etc please speak to Nicolas Pinhol.

If you have any concern about your child or another child, or about the behaviour of any adult at the club, please speak to either of the Club Welfare officers (If your concern is about one of our welfare officers then you may contact the County Welfare Officer Michael Brown by email at ).

Wolvercote Cricket Club follow ‘Safe hands’, ECB’s Policy for safeguarding Children in cricket, and is available to view online at www.ecb/safehands.

The Club is always looking for parental help – please do consider helping out if you can and contact the Youth Manager (Nicolas Pinhol).

Finally, all members are reminded of the club’s code of conduct for members and guests, available at

We do hope that you and your child(ren) enjoy being a member of the Wolvercote Cricket Club.

Yours sincerely

James van Santen (Club Welfare Officer)
