Plans for the Twerton Park pitch
7.30pm – 9.00 pm Weds 25th April 2018
Dear Society Member
The Supporters’ Society invites all members to attend an EGM on Weds 25th April 2018 in the TR Hayes Lounge, Twerton Park BA2 1DB.
This is a single-purpose Extraordinary General Meeting called to conduct a ballot to establish the members’ views on converting the Twerton Park pitch from grass to a “FIFA Quality Pro” surface. Those attending will have the opportunity to discuss and debate the motion and then cast a vote via a secure ballot box on the evening. Alternatively, it will be possible to vote either on-line or via a postal vote (details below). It will NOT be possible to change the wording of the motion as the process for the postal vote and the on-line voting will have commenced.
As a member of the Society you have a duty to make an informed decision on this important topic. Please take every opportunity to understand the implications of the decision. The Club Board commissioned a Feasibility Study which was sent to you previously if you are not on-line. Alternatively, the Feasibility Study, an FAQ document and supporter docs are to be found at this link. Also, the Society hosted an Open Discussion on 22nd March. The presentation and meeting summary are found at this link. There are also numerous relevant documents available to read, on request, at Twerton Park.
All members will be invited to vote “Yes” or “No” to the following motion:
“Bath City should immediately and provisionally pursue replacing the Twerton Park pitch with a "FIFA Quality Pro surface" subject to the conditions in the feasibility study being met. This would include a clear and sustainable plan to secure capital funding.”
Following the commissioning and publication of the Feasibility Study and having listened to all points of view, The Club Board recommend that you vote “yes” to the motion.
Each eligible Society member is entitled to one vote. The vote will be overseen by a neutral observer who will ensure it is conducted according to the Society’s constitution and s/he will report the results. The aim is to announce the results no later than Friday 27th April.
All members registered on the date of the EGM notification (11th April 2018) will be eligible to vote and can do so by one of the following three methods.
You can vote using ONE of the following methods.
All votes must be received before midnight on 25th April 2018.
