Canít see how we have only until the start of this season.  What happens if itís not done ?  Throw us out and then re-shuffle around a few Leagues after the fixtures are all out ? Chaotic.

I seem to recall when we last went to step 2 ( Bobbins as Chairman, Webb as Manager) we had 12 months grace.  As in we played one season at that level then got demoted the following season by not having the work done by agreed date.

So if the above is still applicable we have until
March 2020 to complete the work ( all of it)

I would think Admin on this site would have a clearer picture of timescales involved

Itís a great idea you can also get grants from the F A for ground improvements I know this has I was involved in getting a grant for £120000 of the F A for ground improvements

M A Hill, which Club was that for and when?

What about a Linnets' Lottery?
You pay £1-2 per week via direct debit. 1,000 people over a year would generate between £50,000- £100,000 per annum.
Monthly pay out of ??? £1,000? The club makes between £38,000 and £88,000 each year. Maybe you could reduce the size of the monthly payout and offer some ticket concession deal to incentivise existing or potentially new supporters. Get some volunteers to knock on doors selling the lottery. I would help with this. Thoughts?

Eastbourne Borough have a lottery scheme organised through a centralised lottery organisation.

That will apply to any of these suggestions. Sounds like the club need to employ someone with specific responsibility for  raising funds from sources other than attendances. Even if this is just a part-time appointment.
