18 Mar 2021 : Chairman's Update - Week 8
Annual General Meeting
The club's AGM took place online on Thursday 11th March and I want to thank everyone who attended and everyone who took part in the online voting.
It wasn't ideal that we had to hold the event online and I hope we don't have to again but it was essential to hold the AGM before the end of March so we could meet our mandatory obligations.
For anyone who was unable to attend, we will hopefully be able to send out a recording of the event to all Trust members. I must warn you all though, it is just an hour of me talking!
In the interest of transparency and keeping Trust members informed of important decisions that the board make on your behalf, I wanted to inform you that we received a request to groundshare.
The request came from a club in the NPL North West Division. The request was discussed with Calum and the board and then Peter Cartledge and I met with representatives of the club who made the request.
After weighing up all the pros and cons of the request and taking into account Calum's opinion on the subject, I recommended to the board that we should decline the request and the board were unanimous in supporting that recommendation.
Due to commercial confidentiality I am unable to discuss the specific financial aspects of the offer, however their starting offer meant we didn't feel we could negotiate an agreement that would make the groundshare worthwhile.
If anyone would like to discuss this issue with me, then please use the Chat with the Chairman link under Contact Us on the club website and I will share what I can.
As many of you will have seen from the pictures shared on Twitter, the compound work is at an advanced stage, so I thought I would share the plans with you all.
The whole compound has been cleared of any rubbish, the trees have been cut back, all the old fencing has been removed, the path that runs alongside the players tunnel has been extended, the two containers have been moved to run along the edge of the compound and the portacabin containing the manager's office and the new clubshop has been moved to run parallel with the main building. The next stage is to install new fencing, landscape the entire area and then finish with a fresh coat of paint.
Work on the compound was long overdue and it was apparent that it needed more than just a bit of a tidy up. Not only will this work make the compound look much better, it will finally make the compound safe and ensure the safety of our volunteers who enter the compound.
The Grounds Maintenance team have put in many hours of hard work and I would like to thank each of them for that hard work, it is very much appreciated.
Thank you for taking the time to read this update. Keep well, stay safe and I'll see you all soon.
