General Discussion / Re: 856 Foundation

It's good to talk, 

Maybe the programme sellers, gate stewards and others around the ground can mention it,  soon get the grapevine going.

Focus on that one simple thing,  the BT Sports ppl will pick up on it if the club do their bit,

Job's a good 'un.

General Discussion / 856 Foundation
« on: September 11, 2021, 10:13:34 AM »
I'm assuming someone at the club will be mentioning the 856 foundation on camera today?

Yesterday was suicide prevention day. (according to twitter)  and i see no better place than a football ground to highlight this cause that is so personal to so many of us.

Lee was my friend as well.  From breakfast club at BNI, to a pint in the Nap many a year ago and a few away days when i first moved up here. Like you,  I found friendship on the terraces at The Walks.  Lee was one of the blokes in the group i made friends with when i first started going to watch King's Lynn. They turned out to be collectively called the 856, yes I had to ask.........

For many of you, it was for much longer and your friendships will be much stronger, but what i do know is that today could be an extremely fitting tribute to Lee and show the club and therefore the Town in an extremely good light.

The town has shown it's love for him in it's outpouring of grief when we lost him,  today, the football family can show the football world not just what Lee meant to us, but also that's it is ok to be not ok. And it is,  good to talk.

It is good to talk and talking with mates at football has saved many a soul over the generations.  It's where we bond, we come together and get behind our team. We can forget our worries and let it all out for an hour or two. 

I'm not sure what would look like at The Walks today,  it could come in the form of banners at pitchside and a few words from the chairman in one of the televised snippets,  it could at 8 minutes and 56 seconds,  applause rings out throughout the ground....... It may come as a chant, in UNISON,  all I know is that today is an opportunity to honour a friend and highlight a bloody good cause and the 856 foundation that has been launched in lee's memory.

Absolutely brilliant news!

Woke up this morning to find that the petition has reached the 10,000 signature mark.

Nice work people,

The map of the signatories reflects just that. Higher density in West Norfolk and fades out as you get further away.

Similar to the fan base really!

10,000 is where we'll be.

Even the eternal optimist in me wouldn't dare to suggest 100,000

I think for a town of 40,000 to get 1/4 of the population to sign is a good job done.

It keeps the campaign in the public eye and galvanizes people to focus on something we all care for.

Every Saturday from around 11am through till around 4.45pm and again on Sunday Mornings, hundreds, if not thousands of local people are in parks, fields and stadia watching or playing football and other high impact sports.

Every weekend, without fail, the A & E department will see quite an influx of visitors with sprains, breaks and fractures and head injuries sustained by people playing the beautiful game.

Our hospital however, regardless of how brilliant the staff and service provision given, is crumbling and is now very dangerous with over 200 props holding up the roofs in public access areas.

Wards have had to close to be made safe and it's getting worse.

There is a petition that requires 10,000 signatures to get a response from the Government. 

This petition needs just 380 more signatures to get that response.

Can i ask, that as a club,  we help push this over the line today. If you haven't signed, please do so.

Then share the petition link via email, WhatsApp, Fb, Linkedin etc and get this done today.

If you administer an email group, or FB group,  share this YET AGAIN with a personal plea if that's what it takes.

Thanks in advance

Let's just get this done.

MAH, Griss, thanks for clearing that up, I guess you won't be surprised that I won't now be wasting the fuel in travelling to Lynn for a 'social drink' on the 7th.

Isn't that where the best business gets done Tony?

Informally, over a few beers, where everyone gets a fair say rather than a formatted meeting controlled by someone who loves the sound of their own voice?

If you have 30 people in a bar, who all share a common goal,  add a few smiles and a little alcohol and watch what happens.

And remember, it's what happens between meetings that's important.

Meetings about meetings get sod all done other than ticking boxes and wasting everyone's time.

So the simple question is ...Why are we the most expensive and what is the justifying logic.......

New facilities?

I thought the players on furlough could be taken off and placed back in the squad if necessary....🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️
As i understand furlough and part time furlough it sounds like if you furloughed you cannot play for your club but you can sign for another while still drawing your furlough from the first job.
But then there is part time furlough which as i understand it you can be furloughed at 80% of your pay but if you work some and part time furlough some then that is feasable.
So why cannot players be paid for matchdays and furloughed for the rest of the week?
Please someone correct me if i am wrong.

You're right. Can even submit an hourly claim.  Just inform them of the hours worked and its adjusted accordingly.

It is admirable that these fine souls keep to the constitution and principles of the original organisation and how they have maintained that in such a disciplined manner. However it is, on the other side, a very poor show for  a constitution drawn on normal times to not re-write the constitution in times such as a pandemic. To this end the Government has had to do this in ensuring the country was provided the furlough system and other changes to ensure that people in this country were not found dead lying in the streets in which we live. So the trust must consider constitutional amendment. To this point it is understandable that they may find it to much of a risk to part with even some of their "foodbank" to this particular cause, but we must see some "noise" from this group before kick off on Saturday. One way or the other, yay or nay, with reasoning is required. Without this any respect the trust has within the terrace will be lost and the trust will in turn lose all credibility, and I suspect some membership. Here will be opposition to any future ambition the trust has for the continuation of football in Lynn and opposition to their future involvement.

The furlough scheme has been used before, it's not new or an unknown, it's part of an armoury used to prop up business. rarely used, but more democracies with large economies have them.  Ours was tinkered with and re-introduced after the Swedes, Portuguese, Fins, Italians and Norwegians changed there's to almost 100% of pay in some cases.

Trust constitutions are written in law i think, not down to the individual Trust per se,  I stand to be corrected....
