I shall sign up later, just need to work out what package I will do.

Just one piece of constructive criticism - it would be great to have the section on the county ground plan from the AGM pack published on the website (not as a document), or perhaps an FAQ containing the same sort of details. I think this makes things really clear and whilst admittedly I've not kept my eye on the ball in terms of the trust's activities, I still had to hunt for the information!

Hope this builds in momentum.

the red army site is clearer now, I'll sort out my payments this week

http://www.redarmyfund.co.uk

So the money raised isn't going towards buying the stadium, just the CG campaign whatever that may be ?? I'm still confused I'm afraid on what their aims are for the CG

Do the Trust publish the current total and value of regular pledges for the Red Army Fund? I can't find anything, but I'm sure there used to be something like that.

In this case where there's a target to aim for, some kind of 'totaliser' could be a good incentive.

Initially I interpreted it as that too, but I think the 'professional campaign' actually uses the RAF as a source of income to buy the ground, as outlined in the AGM pack:

From what it says on the website, the RAF money will be used to not buy the ground but to help pay for their campaign(s) to get to the stage where they can buy it, then if the council give them the go ahead they will then release shares to buy in the trust / ground to help raise the funds for the purchase.

I actually emailed the trust chairman today about this as their messages are just so mixed it's really confusing, it's hard finding out what you are actually donating for, ok it's long term is the purchase of the ground but as above, it seems like that will be a different "fund" as the RAF is only used for funding stuff like the GWR banner and working with the local schools. Hopefully they will correct me if I am wrong.

The funds generated now will go towards a professional campaign that will give us the best chance of being successful, and in the future we will be sharing details of how you can purchase 'community shares' and buy a stake in the County Ground itself.
