The Green Heart of Poringland


The following Codes of Practice have been introduced by the Kingfisher Club to ensure that parents, guardians, carers and juniors are fully aware of their respective responsibilities.

Kingfisher angling club is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of all its members.  The club believes that it is important that members, coaches, administrators and parents associated with the club should, always, show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare of others.  Therefore, members are always encouraged to be open and to share any concerns or complaints that they may have about any aspect of the club with the Club Welfare Officer or Club Coordinator.
