Apologies: Paul Isenwater, Alan Drury
The Trust has put in £2970 into running the reserves so far, a combination of paying bills directly (eg for coaches) and making payments into the club’s account. The club has £500 of this money left. The first share certificate was received for the initial £2000 payment. The Trust has £13,500 in the bank with the estimated cost for this season’s reserves £7525. The first three games yielded an income of £475 and the club says that Learning Skills Council funding will be in place to fund the reserves in the future. The Trust’s logo will also be on the shorts at the next game.
Committee members present: Alan S, Rob U, Julia U, Phil C, Martin R, Alan J, Alan D, Paul G, Andy K.
Matters arising from previous meetings: The seats are still at Peter Rigby’s house. There has been movement on the house but there is no time-scale on when any possible transaction may take place. Paul Glendenning has offered his basement as a temporary measure. The Trust has been advised that a Portakabin to store the seats in would cost in the region of £6000. A garage type structure could be built for around £750 and also used for storing additional items. Haydn Preece wants future accountability meetings to be open to all Trust members
