Happy New Year from the WW Trust

2023 here we come

First of all, the whole team at the Trust Board would like to wish you a very happy and prosperous 2023!

I hope it will continue the way it started at Peterborough, 3 – 0 all the way please! Everything is possible in football and League One is no exception. Make sure you’re there for the Sheffield Wednesday game on January 14th, it will be a busy one.

Opportunity to Support the Trust on matchdays

As you are aware at every home game the Trust has a table and gazebo in the car park, where members and non-members can come and talk to Trust Directors about relevant issues related to the Trust and Club. In the past the table has been hosted by two Trust Directors. We have reviewed this approach and from the Fleetwood Town home game on Saturday 28th January we would like to welcome any Trust member who would like to give up some of their time to help us host the Trust table, as well as to help engage in conversations with other members and non-members. They would be joined by one Director of the Trust to maintain the two-person presence.

The support would involve help in setting up the table and gazebo and attending for about one hour or so and then helping to put the table and gazebo away. Typically this would be between 12:30 and 14:30. If you are interested in volunteering to help the Trust on matchdays then please email Ben Dunlop on [email protected] with details of the game you would like to support us on. Ben will then get in touch to tie up details.

We will review the effectiveness of this approach over the remainder of the season with a view to continuing it into next season if it is a success.

Rob Couhig back at AP

Rob Couhig will be back with us around the middle of next week and I’ll be meeting up with him as usual. If there are any burning issues you’d like me to raise with him, please email [email protected] 

The Trust will also be at the table in the Gazebo (Car Park), as usual, on January 14th, so please come along and see us, bring any One Can Trust donations you have and donate to Prostate Cancer UK (in memory of Bill Turnbull) too.

The QBC Draw for January is now well under way, with a guaranteed prize of well over £750 and a potential total pot of almost £4500. Alan Sunderland, who won £774.40 in December’s draw was really glad he took part, so make sure you do too.

You can still enter till 11.59 on January 25th and it costs just £2 per ball. To enter click this link now https://checkout.square.site/merchant/MLE4NEDGQ0YM4/checkout/KZP3EU6Z2FJD44QBWMLH43OB?src=sheet

Update from the FSA

The FSA is planning a National Fans Survey, it is six years since they last ran a similar poll. It’s meant to be something of a census on all the key issues around being a fan, and to give hundreds of data points to support their work, help form policy, use to respond to journalists’ queries, etc.

They’d like to know which topics/issues you’d like to see them poll fans about. Don’t worry about framing the question perfectly; they’ll do that.  The survey will be in-depth and it helps to have everything in the mix when putting it together. They’ll include as much as they can.

So can I ask you for your top 3 topics / questions / issues that you would like to see included in the survey. What does the FSA need to be addressing? What concerns you  about football? Please email me any queries you would like the Trust to put to the FSA.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Adams Park on January 14th, come and see us in the car park, outside the Caledonian Suite.
