In 2008, Lansdown became the 714th club nationwide to achieve 'Club Mark' status. ECB Club Mark has been developed by ECB and Sport England to set down criteria a club must work through that will enable them to gain accreditation.
Successful accreditation identifies a club as one that takes the welfare of its junior members seriously and wishes to provide a junior section that is well organised and is committed to being a safe, effective and child-friendly club. This accreditation has to be renewed every 3 years with annual check ups.
