Event Safety & Welfare Workshop

The Event Safety & Welfare Workshop is a surprisingly enjoyable learning opportunity for anyone involved in making an event happen.  All organisers, planners and controllers are required to attend it, and we would like all adults and older juniors in the club to undertake this training even if they have no immediate plans to take on a major role.

The workshop will be held at Aviemore Community Sport Hub (the Primary School) on Tuesday evening 27th June, starting at 18:30 and finishing at 21:30 prompt. Even if you’ve been before, you’re welcome to come along and will learn something from a second bite at the cherry, and talking of bites, we promise some cake too :-D
