Under 18s at Events
WBK welcomes the attendance of under 18s at our events but due to child protection requirements WBK requires that either a guardian or parent also attends. If a child is attending an event without their parent or legal guardian, but with another guardian (e.g friend of the family) WBK requires a letter from the legal guardians/parents confirming that the other party is acting as the guardian of the child at the WBK event.
