UK Athletics and the Home Country Athletics Federations through a joint collaborative approach to wider welfare matters are fully committed to the behavioural codes of conduct for the sport.
Bullying, harassment and abuse whether undertaken in person or through digital means such as private and direct messaging or through social media are completely unacceptable. The act of targeting any individuals with abuse or poor behaviours via any message boards, chat forums and other online platforms will not be tolerated and will be fully investigated.
Individuals who are subject to these forms of harassment and abuse are encouraged to come forward and report these issues.
To report any matters relating to online/cyber bullying individuals can contact firstname.lastname@example.org , their respective Home Country Athletics Federation welfare contact or a club welfare officer.
As you might be aware as was discussed last week the club have created a new Facebook page in order to be more marketable to a more full audience. Please can you like/follow the page and click the settings button (three dots “…”) click follow options and enable post notifications so you have less chances to miss anything.
We will be keeping the old Facebook groups live for a few weeks so that the current posts that have timely relevant information can still be accessed and the conservation of 10 years of photos (for better or worse) can occur.
Otherwise have fun and this should make life simpler
Wednesday 17th November at Blackhill Bowls Club 7pm.
Now that most of us have been able to enter some races and restrictions have been lifted, we want to look at what we can do to move the club forward for 2022 and beyond. We want everyone to share their ideas on what they want from the club and what they can do to help.
We’ve arranged a meeting on the 17th of November at 7PM, for you to come and share your thoughts and ideas, as well as having a drink!
Before coming along, it would be great if you could do a couple of things.
Please confirm your email address is correct, we need that, or we can’t send anything to you because of GDPR rules.
And most importantly, let us know if you have any questions or ideas about what the club should be doing.
We want your thoughts on things like,
What kind of training nights do you want? E.g., Structured training sessions, long Sunday runs?
Where do we want to meet?
Do you want to take part in team events? E.g., Harrier League Cross Country, Relays etc?
What races do you want to arrange trips to? E.g., Blyth Sands 5th December.
What do you think we should do about membership fees? It was £15 this year which covered the England Athletics fee.
Or anything else you want to talk about.
As well as your ideas, please let us know what you are able and willing to do to help arrange all of this. The club is for all members, and everyone can make a contribution.
Please let us have your thoughts before the 10th of November, that should give us enough time to collate them all and to prepare some further ideas etc. If you can’t make that evening, we still want to read what you have to suggest.
Look forward to seeing as many people as possible on the evening.
