Today, after our TUST board meeting last night, we unanimously agreed upon this action. I have posted a letter to Mr Osborne on behalf of the board, our members and I believe a large number of our supporter base. This letter contains several questions which cover most of the concerns that we currently have. I believe, through reading the various fans forums for a number of weeks and listening to a wide range of supporters, that these questions are also now of general concern in terms of our club.
We have requested that Mr Osborne kindly gives us a response to these questions in the next few days, in order to, clarify the future situation on and off the field. We, the TUST board plan to meet again at the end of next week and will release another statement shortly afterwards, hopefully by which time we will have received a reply.
I need to acknowledge that, as already many have commented on, many improvements have been evident behind the scenes at Plainmoor. Also, certain areas have been more fully resourced and a return of the Torquay United Youth Academy has been very encouraging and welcomed by most supporters. Furthermore, the TUST have been very pleased to have, together with a joint initiative with TUFC, re-established regular meetings with representatives of the Club and ourselves.
Meanwhile, I am aware that many supporters, who are not members of TUST, are unaware of the initiatives or are misinformed about the activities TUST has been involved in over the last few years. We regularly inform our members with monthly newsletters, bulletins and through general meetings, the most recent being our AGM in December. The most important thing you can do is join the TUST both to inform yourself and hopefully become more pro-active within the organisation. We have a strong membership base, but we need many more. It is not just your subscriptions we need, albeit they do contribute to the action fund, it is having you on board and fully informed.
