Fan Consultation Group meets tomorrow

Meeting at Griffin Park on Tuesday

11 June 2018

We are holding the next in our series of Fan Consultation Groups tomorrow, Tuesday 12 June, from 6.30-8pm in The Hive and would like to take the opportunity to invite along other fans to join the group. We are particularly keen to attract fans aged 18-24 to ensure we have a wide range of views represented - but this is an open forum for any fans that would like to come along.

These meetings provide a valuable opportunity for the Club to discuss and get feedback on detailed plans for our move from Griffin Park to the new stadium and for fans to help shape these plans to make them as successful as possible.

This is the seventh meeting held by the Club, typically attended so far by around 20-25 fans, including representatives from BIAS, Beesotted, Bees United and Griffin Park Grapevine.
