The CWC committee met this week via Zoom for a wide-ranging and productive biannual meeting.
The success of the online committee meeting confirmed the view that we should hold an AGM via Zoom on the afternoon of April 29.
Committee discussed ECB accreditation in the light of the Covid pandemic and the delayed start to the season, and has been able to update members accordingly.
Committee also discussed the implications for media requests when players have been put on furlough. The Club has been liaising with the ECB and PCA on this, and has advised members of the best way of approaching with media requests.
CWC continues to update members with important and useful resources during the Covid pandemic, including hardship and emergency funds which they may be able to access, as well as well being initiatives, and updates on the situation facing freelancers.
The pandemic is hitting charities hard, and our friends at the Lord's Taverners are running a quarantine quiz, which you can get involved in for a minimum donation of £2 and can play with family at home or friends online. Check it out here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/thequarantinequiz
We are also pleased to have recently given CWC members details of a discount to a highly regarded TV training course, made available during the pandemic.
