Mar 18 – County Ground AGM Update
The meeting was well attended and started with a review of the year just gone, covering the events that followed the 2017 AGM, and the Fans Meeting held last May.
Following extensive due diligence, a proposal was submitted to Swindon Borough Council in August 2017, and this was followed by a meeting with local councillors from all parties in September.
We also started discussions with a 3rd party developer regarding a fully funded and brand new £15m Town End, and had positive and constructive conversations with representatives of the Goddard estate.
£1m of matched Crowdfunding was secured, which is a massive boost to the fundraising effort, but along with major contributors we are looking to include as many supporters as possible through community shares.
