Delivery times will be posted to all clubs this coming week, so keep checking.

Times of delivery to Penzance and collection times will be published closer to the start of shipping, but as a rough guide anyone with a Gry shipping its normally about a noon drop off, Scillonian III by 7am.
 
Returning, normally around 20:00 for a Scillonian III pick up, roughly 14:00 onwards for Gry.
Please note these are ROUGH guides and the more exacting times will be published at a later date

INSURANCE

We have recently received some questions regarding insurance.
 
Please do have a conversation with your insurance broker as they really are the best people to advice.
 
One of the recent questions was around ‘Directors and Officers Insurance’. We spoke with the CPGA broker, and the response can be seen below.
 
Directors & officers insurance is something I am recommending more and more to clubs as this protects the committee members against liability claims which may arise through their decisions. As these committee members are all volunteers, the last thing they would want is allegation being made and having to use their own money to defend it.
 
Accusations a committee member could face include:

  • Breaches of health & safety regulations
  • Using money outside an organisation’s scope
  • Not acting in an organisation’s best interests
  • Libel & slander
  • Discrimination or harassment

One final point I would make, a club would need to let their members know that they are using club money to incept this cover as it is a policy protecting their personal liabilities and not the club. However, member shouldn’t have an issue with this as they will recognise the work committee members put in to running a club.

Do revisit your club’s insurance and think about what you as a club have in place.

QUEEN’S PLATINUM JUBILEE ACTIVITY FUND

It’s worth looking to see if any projects that your club are considering this year fit this new fund criteria.  

Between £300 and £10,000 so worth looking.

Have a read of the information on page 11 onwards regarding COVID recovery.

We continue to recommend the following below.

Think about how you as a club wish to deal with any confined spaces, eg mask or not, but make your club members aware and also amend risk assessments accordingly.

Lateral flow tests are now commonplace, we would suggest that this is still encouraged. Follow all guidance regarding recommended isolation etc as required.

Coxes may wish to return to wearing protecting eg face shield, eye protection, mask when coxing.

Continue to

  • Wash / sanitise hands regularly
