We had our weekly meeting last night to ensure that next Thursday's meeting is organised. It was decided that we will need to arrange the following Working Parties:

- Bar/Refreshments/Catering
- Ground Maintenance
- Stewarding/Health & Safety
- Sponsorship/Fund Raising
- Media/Community Relations
- Supporter Communication
- Financial
- Merchandising/Retail
- Functions/Events

Now each of these areas will need people to steer them in the right direction. Anybody will be able to nominate themselves or others for a position, but this must be received prior to the day of the meeting. Communication will be made formally to everybody who signed the Supporters Trust forms to advise them of this.

The names that have been mentioned so far to stand for these positions are:


- Bar/Refreshments/Catering - Sue Bass
- Ground Maintenance - Tim McGinley & Alan
- Stewarding/Health & Safety - Steve Arnold
- Sponsorship/Fund Raising -
- Media/Community Relations - Glen Eckett
- Supporter Communication - Chris Gardner & Jim Martin
- Financial - Tony Richardson
- Merchandising/Retail - The Girls who currently run the shop alongside John Batch for supply
- Functions/Events - Sue Bass

There are also positions nominated for John Morris as acting Chairman for the Trust, Anita McGinley through her administration work to date, Gary Sutton through his vast knowledge of the operations of the football club along with financial know how, and Dennis Rugg to act as a link between the football side of the club and the Trust.

At the end of the season the elected board will be having a meeting with the current management to gain information that will help the Trust to run the club. Jeff has said that he will answer any questions in this meeting, so any questions that people want to ask can be submitted through the committee.

The matter will not be discussed with Jeff until the season has completely finished, which is understandable.

Hope that has kept everybody informed, any questions please ask.

We aren't going to have the money to pay people to do full time jobs. Your old man is still gonna be important but realistically he will need a new job and that may mean he can't put in the hours. All ground work will have to be voluntary for this to work, but if he can still spare some of his time then he will definately be involved.

Unfortunately, Mick knows as much as we do at the moment, but I have spoken to him and he realises that his job will be made redundant along with other positions.

Good idea to post in advance of next week's meeting.

How about a more formal agenda to be finalised by say Tuesday.

How are the groups going to work? Are they closed i.e. just those nominated and elected, or will meeting be open to others as participants/observers.

Are we looking just to elect group leaders or working parties as a whole?

There will probaly be a lot of people like me whi would like to help on groups but who don't have the time to act as group chairmen so won't put their names forward for those positions.

YB, Good points.
There are likely to be a fair few people who will be wanting to help but are not in a position to commit on a regular bases and would like to contribute whenever they can.
Contact numbers for each group would be handy and a regular News Letter if financies can stretch to that.

There must lots of ideas ready to be put forward and all should be welcome.

A notice board outside the ground is something that should have been in place years ago. I have seen people turn up at Park Lane at odd times to see whats on and have wondered around aimlessly looking for a notice board that could give them info as to what future events were taking place at the Lane..
