Brakes Trust post-EGM statement
As Trust members will be aware, we balloted our membership to gauge opinion on the club’s EGM resolution and that vote defined how we voted at the actual meeting. The meeting returned a landslide ‘Yes’ to continuing negotiations with Warwick District Council, so it is pleasing that the overall vote was in line with the wishes of our members. Each and every one of the Trust Board and Secretary were also in agreement with our membership’s majority wishes and support the outcome of the EGM.
The Brakes Trust remains optimistic about the potential plans, and welcomes the club’s commitment to further engagement, as and when, with all of the stakeholders in the club – including the Trust.
The Brakes Trust would like to seek structured engagement with the club board as these plans move forwards. We believe it to be beneficial to all parties to continue an open and regular dialogue on the progress to date. We recognise the need for a certain degree of confidentiality, and feel confident that arrangements could be made to ensure that this is respected.
The Brakes Trust, as a body in the club and indeed the wider community, will also be seeking to engage with the council and the WDC executive. The Trust has already made contact with a number of councillors during the GT consultation process, and as plans will now move ahead, we feel it is time to formalise our relationship with the relevant parties. We aim to start this process in the New Year.
We would like to thank our membership once again for taking the time to vote in our ballot, which was reflected in our vote at the club’s EGM. Once again, if you have any comments or queries please do not hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s to a potentially exciting future ahead.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
On behalf of the Brakes Trust board:
Adrian Barton, Peter Davis, Graham Hobbins, Nick Rogers, Roy Sandison and Tom O’Connell.
