Event Safety Workshop - Date Announced


Anyone who is acting as a planner, organiser, controller at an event, or running a coaching session for a club (unless they are a licenced coach) needs to have attended an event safety workshop which is required in order for them to be covered by the BOF insurance. SCOA is planning to hold another workshop during the next few months. If you are keen to attend the next workshop, which will be held on Saturday 7th September, close to Reading and will last about four hours, do let me know. Ian Moran (ian_moran(at)

You can mail me on for further information or to sign up. Please do sign up in advance so that I can be sure of numbers and maps required. There is an upper limit of 8 participants due to us using the forest in the summer months.
