Welcome to You all.
 
Witney Town Bowls Club is located in the picturesque market town of Witney in West Oxfordshire on the edge of the Cotswolds. It is the oldest sports club in the area still on its original site, situated within the amenity Conservation Area of The Leys within walking distance of the town centre.
 
As well as offering a year-round programme of outdoor bowls and indoor short mat bowling, the club has been an integral part of the Witney community for well over 100 years. It maintains close links with both the local Councils and has regular contacts with branches of Witney Lions, Rotary, Age UK and the local Boccia group.
The Club is delighted that its NEW accessible pavilion, in providing bowling plus social facilities all year for all, has resulted in the award of a 2017 Inclusive Symbol by the District Council. The pavilion has level access with disabled parking spaces at the front gates. Built with the help of a Community Grant, the Club is happy to make it available to the local community for functions, meetings, activities and parties.
 
The Club is constituted as a Community Amateur Sports Club and has no restrictions on membership. The Club is affiliated to Bowls England and English Short Mat Bowling Association.
               
We welcome visitors from other clubs and invite you to include us in your touring schedule. Witney has a fascinating history and for hundreds of years was famous for making blankets. This came to an end in 2002 when the last mill closed, but there are many buildings remaining that are connected with the industry. The area has many good hotels convenient for visiting surrounding Cotswold towns and villages. Many of these have Bowls Clubs and they would welcome visiting bowlers to take part in a game of bowls and share hospitality with them afterwards.

Parking Guidance; when visiting Witney Town Bowls Club:

 

 

 

 

 

WitneyTownBowls Club

Child Protection and Vulnerable Adult Policy

 

Club Safeguarding Officers: Brian and Alison Eastgate

 

 

WitneyTownBowls Club

Child Protection and Vulnerable Adult Policy

 

General

Witney Town Bowls Club is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and vulnerable adults in the sport. All children and vulnerable adults are entitled to protection from harm and have the right to take part in all the club activities in a safe, positive and enjoyable environment.

 

 

Welfare

·        The welfare of the child or vulnerable adult is paramount.

 

·        All participants regardless of age, gender, ability or disability, race, faith, size, language or sexual identity, have the right to protection from harm.

 

·        All allegations and suspicions of harm will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly, fairly and appropriately.

 

·        Everyone will work in partnership to promote the welfare, health and development of children and vulnerable adults.

 

·        The interests of those who work or volunteer with children and vulnerable adults will be protected.

 

 

Administration

The club will appoint a Club Safeguarding Officer (CSO), as the first point of contact for safeguarding and welfare; it will ensure that the CSO is a member of, or may attend the management committee, making safeguarding issues a priority for the club.

 

Culture

The club’s aim is to create a culture where everyone feels confident to raise legitimate concerns without prejudice to their own position. Concerns about the behaviour of members which may be harmful to a child or vulnerable adult in their care must be reported to the management committee through the CSO.

 

Behaviour

Good behaviour within the club is the responsibility of the players. Team captains, players and parents must always promote good discipline, both on and off the green.

 

Raising Concerns                                      

Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults is every member’s responsibility. This means that everyone in the club has a responsibility to respond to any concerns that they or others, may have about a child or vulnerable adult, or the behaviour of an adult.

 

If a child or vulnerable adult discloses information to you, you should keep questions to a minimum and make brief, accurate notes at the earliest opportunity.

 

A member who becomes aware of any suspicions or concerns about the safety or welfare of a child or vulnerable adult must pass these on to the CSO as soon as possible.

 

 

Transport

When the club arranges transport to matches or competitions then the club will ensure that drivers have a valid driving licence and appropriate insurance and breakdown cover has been arranged; parents give their consent and have the driver’s contact details, with the driver having easy access to parents’ contact details including mobile phone numbers; no child or vulnerable adult is left alone in the car with the driver, unless it is the adult’s own child or vulnerable adult. If, in extenuating circumstances, this situation arises the child or vulnerable adult should sit in the back of the car if possible; the children involved are happy with the arrangement and adults are alert to any signs of disquiet.

 

Review

The club policy will be reviewed by the management committee at yearly intervals, or when new legislation is enacted affecting the policy.
