Safeguarding Officer; Executive Committee & Junior Sub-Committee Member; ‘100 Club’ Organiser.
With the Chairman for a husband it is not surprising that Celia eventually took the ‘if you can’t beat ’em join ’em’ attitude and volunteered her services when the club needed a Welfare Officer back in 2008. Her experience as a teacher in both the secondary and primary sectors and as a mum make her well qualified for the role but she has also updated her ’Safe Hands’, ‘Safeguarding and Protecting Children’ and Sports First Aid qualifications on a regular basis. As Welfare Officer she deals with all safeguarding matters, ensures all our coaches, managers & captains have completed their DBS checks and attended all the necessary courses but, for the last 8 years, she’s also raised a considerable amount of money as organiser of the ‘100 Club’. According to the Chairman she’s “a wife in a million” having had to put up with his his dedication to all things Melton for the whole of their 44 years together!
