Watton (Loch Neaton) Lawn And Short Mat Bowls Club

Safeguarding Policy Statement

Currently we are governed by the requirements of Bowls England, with regards to Safeguarding, and are supported by the Norfolk Bowls Association and their Safeguarding Policy, which not only covers the requirements of those under 18, but also vulnerable adults.

Both policies can be accessed via the links page.

From 2025 it will be mandatory for Watton Bowls Club to be fully complient with the Bowls England and Norfolk Bowls Association Safequarding requirements. In order to achieve this the Club Committee has recruited and appointed a Safeguarding Officer.

Watton Bowls Safeguarding Officer is Ollie Hutchings

01953 571588


NGB Lead Safeguarding Officer is Juliette Maggs-Bowen

Contact details can also be found on a poster deplayed in the Clubhouse.


This intention is shown on our Constitution in the Club Officers section and the Safeguarding statement.

Safeguarding Policy is reviewed annually prior to the AGM in October by the Club Committee, so that the members can be updated on the Club position going forward.
