You are cordially invited to attend the Monthly Meeting in the Warm Up Area of the Falkirk Community Stadium on 22nd August 2011, KO 7.30pm. There will be a full agenda for discussion, but if you have any concerns you wish to raise, please respond to either BairnsTrust or post your query on the message board at our website and we will try to cover on the night. If you are unable to attend, the Minutes from the meeting will appear on our website later for your perusal HERE.
The new season has arrived and BairnsTrust are planning for the season ahead. We expect there will be many highs and lows throughout the football season but the one constant is the Falkirk supporters. It is important that we all come together for the benefit of Falkirk FC. BairnsTrust are in the preliminary stages of organising some events and merchandise items as well as building on our communication links and the ways in which we can represent fans. This is YOUR chance to be heard. Don't be quiet; come along to meetings, visit the stalls, have a natter, air your points of view, or even send an e-mail, just simply get involved and make the Falkirk experience a great one!
Similar to the Club, BairnsTrust are currently searching for new talent to come forward and help out. Robert Stirling , who was our Secretary has moved to pastures new and taken a post at Macclesfield Football Club as Retail and Ticketing Manager, we thank him for his service to BairnsTrust and wish him well for the future. We would like to hear from any supporters who have some spare time to give to aid the running of BairnsTrust, particularly for match day activities but any help is welcome including, but not limited to, accounting, administration, fundraising, and IT. E-mail BairnsTrust to indicate your interest. Any offers of help or ideas will be gratefully received and given due consideration.
No family marquee as yet
Discussions are still ongoing with the sponsor of the family marquee from last season to try and have it in place for the upcoming season. This was not in place for the Partick Thistle game but we are hopeful that it will be up and running shortly. This was a big success last season and is an excellent area where families can come along and get together with fun, games, meet the players and get autographs, and photos, refreshment and a snack.
Membership & Merchandise
The BairnsTrust stalls will be open as usual at every home game this season, you can pick up our latest news booklet which also includes a Share Save form and of course an application form to join BairnsTrust, it's time to rejoin for the season ahead, only £5 again for a whole season. Come along and get involved or have a look at the merchandise and browse the older programmes we have on sale. A must for any collector of Falkirk memorabilia!
There are many items still for sale online. You can always browse the existing BairnsTrust merchandise HERE
Thanks to everyone who took the time to complete our survey, The results of the recent online survey will be avaliable very soon, there were some very interesting answers and everything was not as we expected, i..e. all 'Doom and Gloom' The results will be taken to the Club's respective departments, let's hope they act on the information!
