Without sounding unnecessarily negative, the thing that gets me is that after 3-4months of the Trust initiative (which I commend and support), just 325 people have signed up……..and I suspect the majority are bronze members (£60 pa) and over 100 were already paying a monthly fee!  Whichever way you dress it up, it is piss poor.  To a certain extent we live in ‘The Townend’ bubble where we think everyone cares.  The figures would suggest otherwise. 

To put it into perspective, if 50% of monthly contributors come from Swindon and 50% from outside the town, under 0.1% of the town’s population are interested in buying the ground.  For it to be a success these numbers surely have to multiply by 10.

its not promoted enough though? for the amount of coverage the trust gets online I wouldn't expect any more to sign up and think 325 is actually very good. I will both sign up and contribute when the shares for the ground purchase are put in place and I wont be alone. You can't judge 325 as a figure of swindon fans that are ready to buy the CG

Not why I donate but impressions last

I have had 5 months debited now and not even received an acknowledgment let alone the gifts. This is not why I signed up but still think it's pretty shoddy.

That's poor, have you emailed the Trust about it?

Not my department, I just help out with the twitter etc, but if you could DM me your details, email address etc, I'll get someone to sort this.

Ditto Mexico!

PS, everyone who has signed up has been emailed, please do check spam folders for info@truststfc.com as annoyingly Trust emails often fall foul of that.

Back to Pieman and Mexico, and anyone else on here who has signed up but not received communications/ goodies, do DM me and one of the Trust board members will get in touch using their personal emails, so they definitely get through..

Yes and Steve Mytton has personally emailed me regarding this issue and other matters. Not faulting the communication but it doesn't fill me with confidence with getting things done. The sign up goodies aren't important to me but should be simple to get sorted especially after a few months. A complicated ground purchase is going to be a lot more difficult to facilitate!

I've got emails and the then the goodies a few weeks after signing up, so not everyone is having issues.

I know you ain't complaining, but to be fair when Royal Mail fucked up delivery of my gift Steve Mytton replied to a an email within a day or so and sorted a replacement equally fast.

In terms of impact upon ability to buy the ground as the majority of things would (I hope) actually be in the hands of professionals (I assume its much like buying a house Wink) I am not sure that some delays in dispatching gifts is that much of an indicator?

Hello all

Below is a message from Steve that he sent, or will be sending, to people who contacted me about missing shirts. He thought worth passing on here too

'Sorry for the continued delay - just to let you know that I am still waiting on a large part of the shirt delivery order, we have been badly let down by our supplier in this instance, they are very apologetic but it doesn't help too much. I'm going to do a wider update very soon.

I have another meeting with the Council about the County Ground on Monday so will do a wider update next week.

There is lots to update fans on, aware it's been quiet but can assure you that behind the scenes it's been the busiest time I've ever known (hence the lack of comms).

Going back to the shirts, I'm waiting on an update should know more by next week and that will be part of the same newsletter.

I have had a smaller delivery of shirts, so if you are desperate I may be able to get something out sooner but hoping to do them all in one hit for simplicity.'

This story should really go to the Adver, complete with pics of Si and Mex doing the classic local paper "folded arms and Compo Face" pose:

The conversation didn't happen on facebook or get sent to the Adver by the Courts, it therefore didn't happen.
