EAST BHAM OVER-60's B A

Welcome to our Association Website !
The Association was formed in 1988 to provide a mid-week programme of Crown Green bowling activities for men and women in the over 60 age group.

Initially, membership was restricted to a few clubs whose location was within a 5 miles radius of the Fox & Goose Public House in the east of the city. Its popularity has grown such that the Association now accepts membership from clubs in all areas of Birmingham and surrounding districts.

This easy to navigate website is the main communication tool for the Association. Club Officials and individual bowlers can find news, fixtures and results first hand and much more.

If you represent a club that is interested in joining our Association, or have any information you think is worthy of inclusion on the website, please contact the Association Secretary on this link.

SAFEGUARDING OFFICER
In January 2018 the BCGBA passed a rule that all clubs must have a 'Safeguarding Officer' by March 2019. Failure to comply with this rule may result in the offending club being reprimanded, fined, suspended or expelled as the BCGBA see appropriate.
All vital information can be found on the following website: http://www.safeguardingbowls.org/
W&WCBA will be monitoring the situation with all clubs to ensure that they have the minimum requirements by March 2019 which are:
* to have a named, trained Safeguarding Officer.
* to work with W&WCBA Managers to develop Safeguarding Policies and Procedures.
All Safeguarding officers will be required to have a 'DBS Certificate' and attend a 'Safeguarding Awareness Course'. For more information on safeguarding matters email W&W CBA at: welfare@wwcba.com
