    When I read there will be refreshments available on the night, does that mean they are free? Is there a pay bar or is it soft drinks and crisps?

    So far we have:

    *Secured a sponsor for the match day posters (Queens trust)

    *Updated and added to the list of premises displaying posters which are posted out prior to every home match, it was thought there were nearly 90 premises now.

    *Via social media gathered funding for various flags and banners to brighten up Terregles Street end

    *Oswestry memorial service-via various supporters groups gathered donations to purchase a wreath and all surplus money was donated to the British legion at the service

    *Set up a charity of the week leading up to every home match.This costs the charity nothing we promote the charity on our social media pages and the charity receive a family ticket for the game.

    *Arranged meetings with or had dialogue via email with various supporters groups

    *Had several meetings with Mark Blount where we have discussed various issues including a couple of complaints passed to the committee by supporters which the board have discussed and acted on
    4.A supporters match day experience survey was handed out to everyone in attendance these will be available online shortly and also handed out before a forthcoming home match.
    5.Issues/questions directed to the club and answered by Mark Blount
    A.Issues regarding the number of bins provided provided around the ground-This was agreed to be an issue which needed adressed in the best interests of the club and will be discussed at board room level.
    B.What is the connection between the club and Queens under 19’s Colts playing in the Paisley league-This club originally had a link with Peterhead but that stopped and they approached Queens through Jim Thomson .They have been down to play our under 20’s and Eddie Warwick is in close contact with them.The club obviously vetted their set up , they are well organised and hopefully the link will be beneficial to the youth set up. Eddie has invited some of their players down to training sessions .
    C.Would it be possible to open the gates linking the arena car park and the ground for under 20’s matches-Mark will approach E Warwick and the ground staff but could not see it being an issue
    D.Project brave-It was decided that Queens would go into the Advanced Youth and Community level at this moment meaning little change to our youth set up. There would be considerable expense to move to the next stage , having to employ several full time staff. The board will look at the financial implications over the next period and decide if it is worth taking that next step. There is currently finances in place for the next 3 years for the current under 14,16,18 and the 20’s will still be run at this moment in time.
