‘Pitch In for City’:
We donated a lump sum of £1,000 towards the project and it is great to see the new pitch bedding in very nicely and looking so good.
The Trust asked all supporters groups for their backing to the project, we decided to give a donation up front towards the project.
Why did we donate towards the project?
The moving of the pitch will benefit some disabled supporters as the pitch will be closer to the Big Bank and Flybe Stands disabled areas and with the pitch moved the club can plan for future redevelopments of the Old Grandstand and Away End of the ground, which at present does not have disabled facilities.
The committee is as follows: Nick Saunders (chairman); Colin Atkins (vice-chairman); Jeanne Jones (secretary); Margaret Atkins (treasurer); David Jones and Steve Gazzard (press officer).
Disabled area roofing:
After a number of unforeseen delays the roofing to area 7 in the big bank stand was finally completed early 2010, the supporters club helped part fund this roofing and kindly donated towards the total cost, the remainder coming from our End of Season draw of 2008/09. Our thanks go to the Supporters Club for their generosity and support.
The Christmas draw we held in 2009 raised just over £1000, thanks goes to all those who helped sell tickets on our behalf and to all those who supported the draw.
Plans are already in place for our next Christmas draw and tickets will be on sale very soon, priced at £1 each. We have decided to start selling tickets earlier this year as there are not that many home games coming up in November this year.
Our draw will take place on 8th December 2010.
