Whatís concerning me is Nikki Male or Female

Why would that concern you,would you give different answers depending on gender? Very odd remark? :dontknow:

Been a few strange defensive replies on here. We all want this to be a positive experience, hopefully, so if someone raises a valid question, it is to be hoped they will receive an open and honest reply...that way, more and more people will be encouraged to join and participate.

Iíve seen nothing that would preclude me from joining.  Iím liking the noises Malc is making.  He certainly is full of enthusiasm and is looking to drive this forward.  Seems like he is going to be his own man and not be swayed by outside influences.

I think it's great he is prepared to take it on.

I hope it will be a positive experience for everyone who wishes to get involved.

Thatís a given Malc.  If thatís the feedback after 3 days imagine the response in 3 weeks or 3 months.

The man is onto something

Mallard hope some people on here will join the club itís only £5. Per year so except a flood of applications then again I wonít hold my breath

I'd hate for you to have to hold your breath Malcolm, and feel its a shame that you feel that way. These are the people you have to work with and encourage to join, and is the task you have set yourself.

One suggestion I would make is not to call these people Buffoons. It was tried once before and caused a massive backlash which is still having an effect today.

It's ALL about engaging with people in the first instance. Once you have their ear, you are half way there.

B&G that would never happen and as for the people you have gone before I only have to thank them for their services after all they are volunteers

Malcolm, congratulations on your new position and well done for taking it on.

Can I just say that I think Mallard has raised a very valid point as to what will be the focus of the fundraising.

I would be happy to join and to support any events / activities if I could see a direct result of the fundraising.

I know you have a lot going on at the moment so perhaps you could firm up your thoughts over the next few weeks and get back to us.

Malcolm. Just in case some would prefer to pay by cheque, what is the name on the Bank account?

Do people just have to make the cheques payable to "The Friends of the Linnets"?
