Axbridge Saxons Junior Football Club


Proud to be the first Charter Standard Club in the area


ASJFC is proud to support Somerset County Council, Somerset Activity & Sports Partnership and the Somerset Community Foundation to provide smoke free facilities for the club.

The club recognises the importance of protecting children and young people from the harms of secondhand smoke, and wishes to act as a role model to denormalise smoking.

The club and its grounds will be smokefree at all times when young people are present, both when training and competing at the club. Therefore smoking is not permitted in any of the following areas whilst youth activities are taking place:


No one associated with the club shall smoke in public places in the vicinity of the club during, and immediately before and after activities, so that children and young people are not exposed to smoking.

The use of e-cigarettes and vaping devices is also not permitted.

The policy applies to everyone entering the club grounds, including staff, coaches, volunteers, officials, parents, carers, players, and visitors. The club will actively communicate the policy to these people (e.g. website, Facebook, emails) as well as displaying Smokefree Sports Club signage.

If a person is found in breach of the policy they will be asked to extinguish their cigarette. If they refuse to do so they will be asked to leave the ground.

Stop Smoking support is available to those who wish to quit. Visit the Smokefreelife Somerset website at or call 0800 246 1063 or 01823 765006 for more information.
