Cheltenham Whaddon Bowls Club
Constitution & Policies
In 2015 HMRC made changes to the rules for clubs, which wish to be considered as Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASC): this status gives clubs a number of benefits e.g. relief from rates and favourable treatment for other taxes, which the Treasurer estimates are currently worth at least £2000 to the club. Our previous constitution, last revised in November 1994, did not conform to these new regulations, so to preserve our CASC status, a new Constitution was drafted, based on the Bowls England (BE) model, and this was adopted at the Club's Annual General Meeting on 02 November 2018.
A full copy of the new Constitution is available at the Clubhouse and is also published below. The Club Rules may be found at Appendix B of the Constitution document.
The constitution makes reference to BE policies and regulations, which the Club must abide by. You can view these policies by following the links below:
