  • ensure a duty of care to all members of the Club;
  • provide all its services in a way that is fair to everyone;
  • ensure that all present and future members receive fair and equal treatment;
  • be non-profit making, but ensure that surpluses are re-invested to further the charitable objects of the club;
  • promote equal opportunities for all people regardless of their ability, disability, race, nationality, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.
