Most any of the actions were in connection with items 2, 3 and 4 – Bristol City Women’s Football Club and its supporters to whom we are opening up membership.  This was associated with a review of how we operate through social media and our website.  Item 4 was briefly touched on and item 5 was also brief but very positive news about our bank balance and annual accounts. The SLO provided an update of the current operational position within the football club as we enter a new lockdown. The recent process for selling tickets for the 4 games was busy, demanding long hours. Refunds, due to subsequent Government announcements, were due to be announced that week.
