I did not point it out that way
I pointed out that if you want action why not take some yourself?
Its a pretty simple remedy.
By the way I'm not a trust spokesperson or a board member. I'm just giving my opinion.

Junior lions reinvented?
Good idea

 

When the club switched from season tickets to memberships for the 2008 season, the biggest area of growth was junior membership, which more than doubled the number of junior passes. There is potential out there.

 

I'm often pretty critical of John Kidd, but in fairness the membership scheme of 2008 was his idea and a very successful one IMO.

Perhaps it would be a good idea for the Trust to have membership forms available that could be completed on the night?

Good news Jonty, it's now been reduced to £24 per annum (or £2 per month by D/D)

Being promoted on Facebook and I have messaged Boozer so every pub in Swinton will soon be aware of the meeting! Sandra Trace has also posted on the Swinton People facebook page.

Instead of people getting their knickers in a twist I will reaffirm this meeting is for all Swinton Supporters new and old to attend, receive first hand info from the trust as to the current state of affairs.
It won' t be a meeting for anyone wishing to degenerate it in to a slanging match. Our club needs everyone pulling in the same direction, even more so if it becomes a trust run club.

It really is time we pulled together.

The trust broadly exists to protect the interests of ALL supporters. But to affect trust policy, which us open & democratic, then of course u need to be a member. And putting money into the trust by donation or membership fee is not like putting it into a black hole, since the finances are audited & subject to FSA regulations. It's true though that the trust has been marginalised in the past thru the club's various re-incarnations, and there are probably lessons to learn, although legally at the time the trust's hands were tied. And at the time of writing this I'm not clear as to how future club ownership is going to pan out, but I'm convinced that a strong Trust membership will create a powerful message that the fans must be listened to in the future. Or it may transpire that the only viable way forward is under trust ownership similar to Rochdale & Hunslet. But either way it's simple, if ur not a member, please join.

And I should have added that the distribution of the trust's money is subject to democratic process
