Supporter’s Club AGM 24/05 - Last Monday evening saw the 2016/17 Supporters Club A G M at the Venue . A well attended meeting saw the committee report on a highly successful year . Main highlights were ; Meeting the ambitious criteria of - Reaching our £30,000 Floodlight Appeal target- plus covering the movement and refurbishing costs of the new cabin. Opening the new cabin - named the Rose Adams room. A review of the year - the ups and downs. The meeting heard that the Supporters Club had raised a total of around £48,000 on projects for the club since it's conception. The committee thanked everyone for their support in achieving these aims ranging from the pensioners who regularly contribute a small sum almost every week to the generous donations from other members . The committee also thanked everyone from the community who has supported our events . Similarly all those local companies who have supported us. Without this support the ambitious targets would not have been met. The committee have set future project meetings with the Board starting in July. Additional benefits are being reviewed for members , together with ambitious upgrades within the cabin and online . Details will be announced once further discussion has taken place .  Additional volunteers would be welcome to either join the committee or assist with IT developments. Derek Graham updated the meeting on the squad. The committee thanked the management and squad for an excellent season and also the board for support of the team and their energy required to run the club.  All the committee were re-elected . Membership remains unchanged at £10 or £20 for a family . There is a reduction for single under 16 membership. With all the benefits on offer £10 has to be good value , so why not join.   There was considerable debate which the committee appreciated and the meeting closed with thanks to all who attended. Floodlight Update June 2017 We were delighted to hear that the Football Stadia Improvement Fund  had formerly written to confirm that they will grant 50% of the floodlight costs to match the Supporters Club's 50%. We have already transferred the first instalment of three to the supplier to set the project in progress . We anticipate the second part payment to take place sometime in early-mid July and it is understood completion will hopefully take place late July. The Supporters Club Committee wish to place on record their sincerest hanks to all those who have contributed to our appeal over four years in reaching our target of £30,000.  A special thanks to the football Stadia Improvement Fund for committing to our project . Final completion will represent a great day for Frome Town and one the whole community should be proud of .
