The wider NSPCC would really like your help if possible….

The NSPCC is launching a project titled ‘Professionals Breaking the Silence’, which aims to develop a practical resource that will support professionals working with children to confidently deal with disclosures of abuse and to improve children’s experiences of the disclosure process. This is in response to NSPCC research where young people told us: “I never went and asked for help, but no-one ever asked me”.

Welsh Fencing are pleased to announce the GB Cup Welsh Qualifiers.

The GB Cup

The GB Cup is a new annual National tournament for intermediate Regional fencers. Fencers will qualify through the Welsh Qualifiers for the National Final with the two highest placed fencers in each weapon being selected to represent Wales at the National Finals.

Welsh Fencing are pleased to announce that the 2018 Commonwealth Junior and Cadet Championships will be held on 23rd-30th July at Newcastle Upon Tyne.

More information will be found on the official website www.cjcfc2018.com soon, although we have been advised the page is still work in progress.

Those selected following the criteria outlined here (selection criteria) will be announced within the next few days. There will then be a 2 week window for any fencers wishing to appeal.

Welsh fencing would also like to extend a call out for any coaches, Team Managers or volunteers that would like to accompany the team. Anybody wishing to do so please email secretary@welshfencing.org before 1st March 2018.

 

Wales’ team for the 30th Cadet Winton was a young one, with fewer than half of the 22 fencers having had previous experience of the competition. Several were aged 13 or 14 – often fencing against experienced 17-year-old fencers.

The region finished fifth (equal) of the nine competing regions, which I think is an excellent result and a solid foundation for the future.

The 2018 Commonwealth Senior and Veterans Championships (CFC18) in Canberra are now confirmed to run from 23 to 28 November 2018.
