As operation approaches it’s final phase we have started taking deliveries of some the rewards and expect them all to be with us by w/c 27th July . In order to save on postage costs we are planning to hold a series of collection events from the Trust bar. We are waiting final confirmation on some deliveries but at the moment this is the plan:

Tuesday 21st July (2pm -6pm) – Buckley DVD’s, This Town Knows T Shirts, Mugs

Saturday 25th July (10am -1pm & 5pm -6pm) – All items except pin badge

Sunday 26th July (10am -1pm)  All items except pin badge

Tuesday 28th July (2pm -6pm) – All items except pin badge

Sunday August 2nd (Open day) 10am -midday) All items

None of the above includes “Harry Haddock” which is still being planned for mid/late October. Obviously collection will not be possible for some and we will of course post out where necessary. If you are able to collect then please e-mail us at enquiries@marinerstrust.co.uk with your preferred date and we will have your merchandise ready for you.

With regard to memberships the level of new members both from crowd funder and direct applications has been phenomenal . We have processed most of the direct applications are planning to have all crowd funder processed within 2 weeks of the end of the campaign.

Date for the team photograph is not yet confirmed but is likely to be w/c 27th July and as soon as we have the exact date we will contact those concerned. Similarly we don’t yet have confirmed dates for the Lloyd ground tour or football match and as soon as we know we will notify everyone.

If you have bought boardroom hospitality please let us know your preferred match and we will do our very best to accommodate .

This is a massive logistical exercise and obviously much bigger than we expected when we launched and so please bear with us. We can always use some extra help and so  if anyone has any spare time over the next few weeks and would be willing to help with distributing the rewards then please get in touch.

Once again thank you for all of your support with Operation Promotion and remember there are still 12 days left to add to delivery list – we really don’t mind the extra work.
