Favourite Motto: Aude Sapere – Dare to be Wise
Hero or Heroine: As a Welshman growing up in rural Devon, Scott Gibbs' try in the 1999 5Nations to prevent an England Grand Slam gave me a few months of bragging rights.
Sports Club Child Welfare Officers
Sports clubs and organisations should have a designated Child Welfare or Safeguarding Officer. If you or your child is taking part in activities run by a local club or organisation, this officer should be your first point of contact should you have any concerns.
