...now that the new board members have 'bedded in'. Or have confidentiality agreements put a stop to a flow of information?

No NDA’s in force!

As per the N&S article last week, Working Groups looking at Branding, Membership and Communications have been set-up, and starting to get going on a few things.

Keep an eye for updates in the coming weeks!

Is there going to be a members meeting soon? - I know every 2 months was mentioned at the last meeting but nothings been mentioned in the briefings.

It all seems remarkably slow still. I’m not blaming the new guys at all as it’ll take time but apart from extra presence around the ground there’s been nothing much of note yet.

New window dressing, same old trust.

And some of you fell for the hype :)

Is the new logo going to incorporate a leech and ball and chain?

Re-arranging the deckchairs on the Titanic springs to mind. How about concentrating your minds on getting a regime change?

I think the Trust should call out PD-start a campaign for him to agree something with the club.The status quo is embarrassing for all.

Hey Laffster, why don't you invite Phil on one of your shoots and ask him yourself?

Surely in the circles you rotate in you're bound to have mutual acquaintances?

I don’t shoot with him-but I do shoot sometimes next door at Heads Nook .Most of them are probably his birds as he puts many thousands down.I’ve never met him to be honest-I gather he likes chopping woods down.Although I’ve shot a lot all over the country, His name doesn’t come up at all.

I cycled through Hayton today on way back from Dalston to Corbridge-it’s a lovely spot and it’s covered in maize crops,presumably for his shoot.

I’ve scaled back our shoot at home this year-pheasants poults in short supply due to bird flu and to be honest, killing doesn’t have the same appeal as it used to.An expensive day out but nothing to show for it other than memories-pheasant shooting is currently north of £60 a bird.Last year it would be £40 around here.Antis want to stop the sport but the reality is cost will kill it

Laffy, Some nice places you have cycled through today, I miss my cycling trips in Cumbria and Northumbria. The C2C route has breathtaking views. We are also spoilt for choice here in Canada too.

Piglet, I do not know where you live in Vancouver but you have the same around the city up to Whistler and even Vancouver Island.

Back on topic, I think the Trust need to work with the club to establish a deal with PD and get things out in the open. No one is winning here. The club cannot go forward with confidence until this is resolved. The trust have to be the catalyst here and all stakeholders including the London Branch need to get behind it.

Hoping for a great performance and bag 3 points tomorrow.

How about piglet for prime minister in Canada Laffy :p

Trudeau is a child and an embarrassment imo...but does not spoil what a beautiful country we have here. Speaking of shooting and I might be wrong but you might be doing this around the 25th or 26th of this month.

You could probably knock out the C2C on your bike through Northumbria from Cumbria in a day, you could try the same over here but might take you longer. Halifax to Vancouver. New Zealand is another great place for cycling to

Anyways if you are heading over today BP enjoy...i will have to watch on I follow.
Just read the November board meeting summary received by email - is that all that was discussed?!! Guessing you lot don't fancy pressing the BOD with regards the Purepay debt...

It’s only fair I’m critical of the new regime as I was of the old, I’m disappointed at the lack of member meetings (it’s nearly 5 months!) and lack of any opinions.

Twitter is better and TBF we’re asked how we’d like meetings going forwards.

Moving to a new members platform is good.

However It just seems very slow, it maybe because processes need to be followed and not due to a lack of asking and effort.

But it’s right, the main question to ask doesn’t get answers. I’m sure Billy asks about the debt regularly but for the other owners to not provide the loan agreement shows to me the way the trust is viewed by the others on these important decisions.

The names may have changed, but it's the same old trust.

The trust is the problem, not the solution.

I guess the suckers who backed UF should now be realising their mistake. You were sold a lie, the trust has never been (and will never be) interested in truly representing the fans.

What would you do pig? to fully represent supporters.

I do honestly believe those from UF, who got onto the trust board want to represent supporters however something is amiss at the moment and regarding members views is still lacking.

The Members of UF who joined the board do go around the ground however asking for opinions so they do try but collectively it still doesn’t look like it’s ticking.

Bob likely has the reason and answer why.

Mullen I was joking ish .
But the fact you can actually talk to Dan and Matt for example and not walk away thinking that no matter what you said would be ignored. That is indeed progress . I may actually join now whereas there was no way in hell would I do it before.

I agree Bob, with the old guard it was like banging your head against a wall.

Agree on Dan and Matt but the whole “trust” still is slow for me and I’m still not entirely sure of its purpose.

Hopefully it’ll come in time.

I share the frustration that it ticks slower than I would like. We’re working on that collectively. There’s things happening that aren’t necessarily noticeable/ready to shout about at the moment so can sort of understand when folk say that nothing has changed.

I’d like to think the improved ease of membership management Inc payment methods, improved comms (social, in person) can be recognised as good steps forward, though. The reason these were tackled sooner than some other stuff we have planned is that folk were very vocal about this in and around the AGM run in.

Re members meeting, yes one is absolutely on the way - how it’ll be held is tbc following some feedback on a Twitter poll and any sent/given directly from folk we’ve spoken to. We’re waiting to hear from commercial team for dates and then we’ll publicise. Also seeking dates for a social event.

What a win today, though! Up the blues!
"What would you do pig? to fully represent supporters."

The very concept of the trust is flawed. The aim should be to destroy it / abolish it and start from scratch, let things truly move organically.

"I’d like to think the improved ease of membership management Inc payment methods, improved comms (social, in person) can be recognised as good steps forward, though.

I say (fully aware of the irony) this is the very definition of putting lipstick on a pig.

Personally I think after every members meeting the next time and date should be announced.

Appreciate its difficult with commitments etc, but it guarantees a flow every few months.

I’d certinally appreciate a meeting - would like to ask a question around the recent post orient stand fiasco (and trusts perceived support for this).

Also be nice to get a debt update (but that’s easier said than done)

That’s fair enough.

I see the trust as more approachable due to being around the grounds and the socials are much better. The new member sign up is a huge, quick, improvement.

I do agree though with the post before though that next members meetings should be agreed prior. It’s the only thing from the Agm that hasn’t really took off.
