Club News Saints Supporters Liaison Group meeting in November
The first meeting of the Saints Supporters Liaison Group has been confirmed for mid-November, with all supporters invited to submit topics that they would like to be discussed.
The Saints Supporters Liaison Group (SSLG) is made up of three members of the club’s management – Ella Bevan (director), Brian Facer (head of commercial operations), Chris Wearmouth (communications manager) – along with representatives from the Saints Supporters Club – Gerry Mullan, Dick Weston, Martin Hayward – and ComeOnYouSaints.com – Tony Boullemier, Simon Robinson, David Gardiner.
In addition four Season Ticket Holders – Sue Drinkwater, Kim Stephenson, Emily Holliday, Stephen Jones – had their names drawn at random from those who put their names forward during September.
The SSLG will focus on the day-to-day and match day operations at Franklin's Gardens, giving supporters the opportunity to discuss specific issues with members of the club's senior management.
There are a number of means for supporters to get items onto a SSLG meeting agenda:
- Email Ella Bevan directly – firstname.lastname@example.org
- At the Saints Supporters Club table in the Rodber Suite on match days
- Via the message board of www.ComeOnYouSaints.com
The SSLG’s first meeting will be held on Monday, November 11th, with the deadline for items to be submitted for the agenda being Monday, November 4th.
Minutes will be made available to the public in the days after each meeting.
Ella Bevan is looking forward to getting the SSLG off to a positive start.
“We had a large amount of interest from Season Ticket Holders and a good response from both the Supporters Club and ComeOnYouSaints.com and I’m looking forward to making the Liaison Group an important part of how we engage with supporters,” she commented.
“We want all our supporters to feel they have a stake in the Liaison Group and to tell us if there is a topic that they want to be discussed. We will then feed these topics into the agenda and report back after the meeting. It is important that the Liaison Group has as transparent a process as possible and we will do our best to maintain that.”
