Minutes of Trust in Yellow AGM - Wednesday 10 August
Apologies: Paul Isenwater, Martyn O’Hara (board members) and a number of members who were unable to attend and had returned their ballot papers early.
1. Treasurer’s report and presentation of annual accounts
Phil Carder gave a detailed review of the Trust’s accounts and financial activities over the past five years. The Trust’s current balance stands at £16,020. A surplus of over £7,000 has been generated in the first six months of the current year, including the donation of £5,300 from the late Sally Devine. The Non-League History book has now sold out, generating around £3,300 for the Trust. The Trust currently holds 12,194 shares in the club, representing 4% of the club’s issued capital and making the Trust the fifth largest shareholder in the club.
We will be running coaches to the first two away games at Alfreton (Tuesday, 16th August) and Luton (Saturday.20th).
For Alfreton the coach will depart from The Arion at 3.10, The Crown at 3.20, The George at 3.25 and Haig Ave at 3.30pm. The fare is £16 to Trust members paid in advance, £19 on the day. Non Members should add £5 to each of these prices.
The Luton coach will depart from The Arion at 9.10am, The Crown at 9.20, The George at 9.25 and Haig Ave at 9.30. The fare for this trip is £28 members paid in advance £31 on the day. Non-members should again add £5.
To book you can either ring Alan on 07980-911693 or call in to the Club Shop at the Lincoln match. (Since the Accrington match has been cancelled it does only give us the one home game to take bookings so it would be very helpful if you could give Alan a ring to book a place before then)
Membership of TIY only costs £10 per year so if you plan on using the coaches for two games or more you will get your money back by being a member.
Duiring the season we hope to run coaches to as many matches as possible. We are already making plans for another weekend trip (probably to Braintree/Southend), a day trip for the York match, and some special offers for certain matches. With all the trips we are, however, dependent on getting sufficient support. The more that travel the lower we will be able to fix the prices.
Many thanks to all members who attended the forum on Thursday evening and to Charlie Clapham, Sam Shrouder, Ken Hilton and Liam Watson who answered questions for the club.
A full report of the forum and of the meeting the previous Saturday between representatives of the club and TIY boards will be given at the T.I.Y. Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, 10th August.
After that members will be sent a report and minutes of the meetings in the August newsletter and they will be posted on here.
