Membership Question

Do members have to have an allocated seat for 50 over games next season.

The reason I'm asking is I'm toying with the idea of buying a Championship Membership but would like to sit with my non-member nephew at a few games.

I'm waiting for notice of on the day and advance prices until making a decision.

Money's very tight at the moment and I don't want to give a free donation as I've done the last few season's.

No Rob, you can sit anywhere for the 50 over games (although obviously the member only areas will be out of bounds for your nephew. Happily the Hill welcomes one and all!)

Thanks Bagpuss.

Unfortunately Gimblett's Hill is not disabled friendly.

I kept asking Lavender to fill in the "Flower beds"but he was adamant that he knew better.

I also suggested moving the back row of benches onto the walkway at the front and make a

walkway at the rear. A gradual slopng ramp could be made so mobilty scooters and disabled persons could gain access.

It would also mean there would need to be a steward at both ends at the front.

I spoke to Simon Lees about it and he said he'd suggesred almost the same but it fell on
deaf ears!

Talking of memberships - has anyone else had their almanac yet? I remember reading it over Christmas in previous years but no sign of it this year. I was wondering if it was delayed generally or if mine had somehow gone astray....

Mr Clumsy, I haven't yet received my almanac, so presume it will arrive fairly soon.

I was informed that they intended delaying Christmas until it was published.

Seems sensible to me!
