Case 2 related to Club Development

Case 3 related to Coaching Development

The various options outlined within the business cases were discussed at length and proposals were agreed that would be launched at the Sport Stockport AGM in May.

7.Sports Trust Visioning Day:

BH and JS had attended the event which had proved to be extremely interesting. The 10 outcomes of the Partnership Plan were discussed and comments from the delegates were noted and taken away for further consideration. The plan will be updated and re-issued for further consultation by 1st April 2010.

8. Active Stockport Alliance:

BH circulated minutes of the Group meeting. There does not seem to be a consistency of membership. BH suggested a form to identify persons attending and which organisation they represented. Of the 19 people on the Group only 6 do not work for SMBC.

The Olympic Torch relay will be traversing the North West and suggestions were requested for sites of local interest to attract the route through Stockport. Suggestions passed to BH.

9. Annual Dinner:

Scheduled for Friday 23rd April 2010 at the Deanwater Hotel, Woodford.

There will be 9 categories of awards on the nomination form plus an additional 3 for Stockport only nominees.

The cost was agreed at £27.50 which will include the raffle (previously £5 per participant and the 'heads & tails' previously £1 per participant). In effect this is an overall reduction on last year's price. It was agreed that Jane Hodgson would be approached to MC the award presentation and not include an after dinner speaker due to lack of time.

The application form on the website needs updating.

It was agreed that all the accounts held at the Vernon Building Society should be registered in the new name of Sport Stockport.
