2. Comply with our governing constitution and the law
Make sure that the all decisions and club activities comply with the club constitution and that the club complies with charity law requirements and safeguarding, health and safety and GDPR legislation as well as all England Athletics regulation.

Trustee’s have ultimate say on the operation of the club as they are duty bound to determine what will best enable Dronfield RC to carry out its purposes. As such, they operate an oversight role over committee affairs and decisions.

Trustees must act responsibly, reasonably and honestly and make sure the clubs assets are only used to support or carry out its charitable purposes and not take inappropriate risks with the charity’s assets or reputation
