The Committee is delighted to welcome Melanie Jarvis into the role of Club Welfare Officer. Mel takes over from Deb Hutson who has performed the role for the past few years. Deb will remain on the committee as the Club Secretary.
Mel has been involved with the club for a number of years, firstly helping out with the annual outdoor cinema night but more recently has lead on the Women’s Softball cricket programme alongside Wendy Henry. Mel recently achieved her ECB Level 2 Coaching qualification with Lincolnshire Cricket.
Whilst everyone is responsible for safeguarding at Sleaford Cricket Club, the Club Welfare Officer will make sure the policies and procedures are in place, and that everyone who should be vetted to work with children, is vetted by the ECB.
Mel is the person that others come to if they have concerns, and having attended specific training, she will know what to do in order to assist, or who to ask for further help.
Mel has created a specific Club Welfare Officer email address – firstname.lastname@example.org
