This document outlines how information is disseminated within the club.
If you don’t get information from one of the four methods below, please contact us!
This is used to promote the club, hold and share key documents, identify key activities and for news stories.
Members Facebook Group
We have a Facebook group for our members, which is a very useful source of information – changes to sessions, any up and coming events that may impact regular sessions, plus socials, races coming up and so on. The club uses it to post factual information and not as a discussion forum, whereas members, as individuals, may choose to, which is fine as long as they do so in language that is respectful to all.
Club Notice Boards
We have one noticeboard for official notices, then posters and sign-up sheets on several others at the club reinforcing other media messages.
RDG Mailing List
The Club also holds an electronic mailing list. This includes all email addresses within the membership database, plus any other another addresses that have signed up. Use of this method will be limited (as will access to the list).
Members will be able to opt in or out of the list by contacting a Committee member.
Email will be used to inform members of key meetings, the AGM, newsletters, Covid updates, social events and major items.
There are several; between coaches and for some coached groups.
Club access sheets
To identify indoor users of the ergoes, gym, hall access for coached sessions, hirers and individuals.
We insist that all members should behave respectfully to others on all social media platforms associated with the club and remember that juniors may access them too.
Parents are responsible for how they and their Juniors communicate with the club e.g. the minimum age of use for WhatsApp is 16 years old in the UK.
The welfare team have visibility of all club-led e-groups involving Juniors
Members can contact the club via firstname.lastname@example.org to start a conversation.

Keep Your Details Up to Date!
Please make sure contact details on the membership database are correct. If there are any changes (especially email) please notify the Membership Secretary.
The Club decided several years ago that most of its communication would be electronic, saving time and money. If you can think of other suitable communication channels, or have ideas on how Club communication could be improved, please contact a member of the Committee (or why not stand as the Communications Manager?)
Talk to the Committee and get involved.
