Fans' Parliamnent on the agenda

11 December 2013

Meeting takes place this evening.

If you are planning to come this evening please get in touch with Martin James so that he has an idea of the numbers and interest.

A Fans' Parliament is on the agenda for Shrewsbury Town with the club actively involved in the process.
A number of other football clubs have them to give all supporters a voice and now Martin James, head of community development at the Greenhous Meadow, has proposed a meeting should be held to discuss the matter next month.
He feels this is a good opportunity and a natural progression to build on the good work which has arisen from the regular meetings between the club and the various supporter liaison groups.
Martin has suggested the meeting should take place at the Greenhous Meadow on Wednesday, December 11 (7pm). 
Martin said: "I am looking to convene a meeting of interested parties from across the whole Shrewsbury Town Football Club supporter base with a planned open agenda of discussing the way forward for a Fans' Parliament.
"For this to be effective we need to have an open forum where proposals can be put forward, questions asked, groups identified for membership and a potential structure.
"I am opening this up to all supporters, but ideally we need to have someone from all interested parties and that includes disabilities, away support, families, season ticket holders, Sovereign members, exiled supporters and senior citizens.
"We are not asking for people to sign up to membership of the Fans' Parliament as this may well become part of an election process.
"But we need to gauge the spread of support so that we can assure there is representation from all areas of the support base."
Anyone who would like to attend the meeting should contact Martin James at the Greenhous Meadow on (01743) 289177 extension 258 or via email at
