We are now beginning to get to grips with running Ruislip and change is beginning to happen.
Make no mistake there is much work to do, the whole site including the Social Club has been losing much money for so long time now so without change we are simply pouring money away.
The success of Ruislip is vital, not only to the health and future potential of the Club but also the other many users of the facility, including the local community.
One of the most encouraging moves recently is that we now have Wealdstone people in charge on a day to day basis. Ray Kemp has recently taken up an Operations Manager role and he is being assisted by Tony Short, and in his own inimitable style Ray will be leaving no stone unturned to turn Ruislip around.
There is no doubt that there is plenty of potential in Ruislip. I hope many Wealdstone supporters will continue to come down during the close season and use the facilities, whether just for a drink or maybe for a party or other type of function.
We are thrilled Ray and Tony have agreed to get so involved and with the assistance of others, such as the Management Committee chaired by Leo Morris I am very optimistic that we will see the changes required to turn Ruislip into a successful and (crucially) successful home.
