Ruislip Manor Sports & Social director Dominic Whyley asked me to post this and I am happy to do so.
Meeting: Sunday 9 March 2008 2pm
Venue Lounge Bar, Ruislip Manor Sports and Social Club
A small group of people with Wealdstone connections took a majority holding in Ruislip Manor Sports and Social Club Limited in January of this year. This site has huge potential to provide a home for not only Wealdstone Football Club, but also Ruislip Manor FC and the host of other users currently in situ at the facility. It is also clear that there is an enormous range of tasks and initiatives that need to be undertaken to turn round a business which is in severe financial difficulty.
Finally the loyal following of this club have the chance to get involved in something positive and turn this into a thriving bar and social club.
A meeting has been called for Sunday 9 March at 2pm for anyone interested in becoming involved in forming a Management Committee to support the running of Ruislip Manor Sports and Social club on a voluntary basis.
Several people have already come forward to offer ideas and spare time to assist with this initiative but more people are needed. Depending on the level of interest expressed, this committee could include representatives from a wide range of users, not just Wealdstone FC.
There are a number of areas that we are looking to address immediately including assisting with bar duties, marketing and raising the local profile of the site, financial support etc.
Among other things, the Committee is expected to be responsible for membership, marketing, promotions and ideas on additional site usage. It is envisaged that this committee will meet once a month formally and will work with the Directors of RMSSC Limited to try and return the site to profitability.
Anyone who feels that they have a few hours a week to spare or has any skills or experience should come along to this meeting or contact an official of Wealdstone FC or RMSSC.
