The Trust Committee of Management is aware of the disappointing news that Jon Connolly will not be able to renew his lease for the bar. Jon has worked in the bar for a number of years and has done an excellent job in providing what is a valuable service to Shels fans. We wish him well in whatever future endeavour he pursues.
Given the status of the bar is now in flux, the Trust Committee of Management are exploring options for becoming involved in the ownership and management of the bar, based on the co-operative principles of one member, one vote. We are meeting with the club’s board early next week to discuss options and will communicate with members as soon as an update is available.
Any such initiative to become involved in the bar will require large amounts of resources, both financial and human. We would appeal to members to both renew their memberships here – the1895trust.com/join/ – and to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if they could assist us in any way.
If you know of anyone outside the Trust who could assist us, please also email us at email@example.com.
Many thanks. The Committee of Management of the 1895 Trust
