31st October 2017: The Club re-applied for, and has been successful in achieving ClubMark status once again. The following letter from the ECB confirming re-accreditation was received by the Club's secretary today:
We are delighted to write and confirm that following a review of your ECB Clubmark online file, your accreditation has been confirmed. Congratulations to all those involved at your club for this achievement and for all that they do to promote cricket locally. Having a network of sustainable clubs is vital for the future of the game and achieving Clubmark status shows that you and your volunteers are at the forefront of this.
Your accreditation lasts for 3 years, but to maintain the accreditation status you are required to complete a short form annual health check in the intervening 2 years.
Congratulations again on becoming an ECB Clubmark club.
England & Wales Cricket Board"
ECB Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs and is licensed from Sport England as part of their wider Clubmark scheme.
ECB Clubmark shows that Cheam Cricket Club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members. Clubmark accreditation also means that Cheam CC is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents that their children are well looked after.
To obtain accreditation, clubs are asked to provide evidence that they meet a series of criteria. This is done by loading documents onto an online portal and by demonstrating good practice at a site visit conducted by an allocated Club Support Officer. A copy of the criteria can be found HERE.
Accreditation lasts for 3 years at which point the club will complete a re-accreditation exercise. In the intervening 2 years there is a requirement to complete an annual health check to maintain accreditation.
Thanks to everyone who helped us get through the assessment, particularly Alasdair MacDonald, (Club Secretary) who spent a lot of time collating and uploading the documentary evidence.
