Many, if not all of you will be aware of your our clubs recent good news. FC Lakeside has taken part in an Invitation to Tender (ITT) process with Tewkesbury Borough Council (TBC). The Tender was for the bid to become preferred supplier to TBC for the new community sports facility in Cold Pool Lane, Up Hatherley.
I am proud to confirm as your Chairman, that after months of meetings and hard work from a select group of committed individuals from within your club, we have been successful and have been awarded with the bid and in turn, we have become TBC preferred supplier for the CPL site.
We feel, having completed Stage One, we now move to the next level of this project. Legal advice is now needed and a lease has to be agreed, before a 25 year contract can be signed by FC Lakeside. You can rest assured no stone has been left unturned and a full business plan, asset management, and finance report, amongst other articles, including building partnerships within the local community, have been part of the TBC ITT. This project is both exciting for FC Lakeside and achievable to safeguard your clubs future for at least the next 25 years.
We now move to Stage Two. Your club feels at this point of continued transparency, we need to call an Extraordinary General Meeting. The EGM will be both informative and decisive in terms of moving forward with the permission of your club membership. Therefore the FC Lakeside EGM will take place on Tuesday 2nd May at The Pavilion, Hatherley Lane, Up Hatherley, 7:30pm start on time.
You are very welcome to attend and listen and ask questions, following a further report given on the procedure so far. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the 2nd May, please can you bring your membership cards with you.
Rob Griffiths, Chairman
