You are cordially invited to attend an open meeting to discuss the future of the playing surface at Twerton Park. We need to make a decision in the near future about whether to retain a grass playing surface or replace it with an artificial surface (FIFA Quality Pro).
This is a chance for all to air the relative merits of each so that the members can make an informed decision when we take this to a vote at the subsequent EGM. The date of the EGM is yet to be set and will be dependent of any outstanding matters arising from this discussion.
When; 7.30pm Thursday 22nd March
Where: Twerton Park, BA2 1DB
The Club Board commissioned a Feasibility Study on the subject which studied the issue extensively and reached conclusion that we should convert the pitch to an artificial surface. This is therefore the Board's recommendation (subject to the caveats within the document). You can view the Feasibility Study by following this link along with documents referenced, a FAQ document and a document authored by two Society members which makes the case for grass.
PLEASE TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ THESE AHEAD OF THE MEETING TO ENSURE AN INFORMED DISCUSSION.
Please also RSVP to help us get a sense of the attendance we can anticipate.
