Club governance 


Constitution.
The club has a formal constitution that specifies the rules for the management and membership of the club. Amendments to the constitution can only be made at an Annual or Extraordinary General Meeting by a majority vote. Copies of the constitution are available to all members

Club Officers.
The club is run by a committee of 3 elected members to the position of Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary.
The current incumbents are:-
Chairman: Mike Cross
Treasurer: Dave Hawthorn
Secretary: Peter Bailey 
The chairman, secretary and treasurer can be contacted through the address on the home page of this web site.

Child Protection.
The club strictly complies with The Children Act 1989 for all Junior Members. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a close relative or guardian when attending the club rooms. Once a Junior Member achieves their 14th birthday, and if it is agreed by both the Club’s Officers and the parents/guardians of the Junior Member, they may attend meetings and other Club events unaccompanied, upon receipt of a signed permission form which is kept on record. This policy also applies when the club layouts are invited to outside exhibitions. And the Reading trade show.

Disability Statement.
The Normandy Village Hall has parking adjacent to the front door and has wheelchair access to the main and club meeting halls. It is equipped with disability toilets. However, no access is available to the clubroom itself as this is upstairs and no access is not provided by Hall Management. The club welcomes disabled members to attend all events held where access is available.

Data protection.
All membership data is stored and used in compliance with GDPR requirements.
