Over on the British gaming board is a lively debate about upcoming changes to the CRB requirements which may have a big impact on wargame clubs and shows -

As a side debate it may have major implications for re-enactment groups as well.

Could someone from a UK group who has experience of the new requirements please share their thoughts here ?

What about crossing borders? Does a Scottish disclosure cover you in England and Wales or vice versa?

the group I used to be mainly active in mentions it on their website

The Vikings (once NFPS)

This might also be of interest in a macabre way, a Local Government Risk assesment for an event

8 PAGES! I don't think that would fly in my local. And we have "living History" events with black powder.

Scottish disclosures stop at Hadrians wall wall I'm afraid …

That Risk Assessment is fairly standard I'm afraid. Interesting though.

Beware the evil combs. If they are sharp I assume carding combs for wool mind

CRB checks are 'job specific' and go with the post. For a club, I would think this means that you need at least one new CRB check a year for each member of a clubs executive as they change roles. The point is, with junior members the executive and committee would be deemed as the ones responsible for running things.
