Re: Statement responding to 'social media storm' "Regarding Wrexham DSA & Viewing Platform"
 
[QUOTE=WrexhamO;2304690]Part of an email from the club:

"With regards to a presentation on the pitch I have been informed this won't be possible at a cup game, but also due to the fact it isn't a Wrexham AFC club related award I'm afraid."[/QUOTE]

I seem to remember the club allowing the Welsh weightlifter to parade his trophy around the pitch. Perhaps disabled groups from the midlands don’t have the same weight with some on the Board, compared with a triumph which can be linked with their favourite political cause of Welsh nationalism.

Re: Statement responding to 'social media storm' "Regarding Wrexham DSA & Viewing Platform"
 
[QUOTE=terrytactics;2304873]I’m extremely disappointed with this news however, not surprised. I strongly believe that it’s long been a hidden agenda by the WST to undermine the DSA because of its independent status and willingness to hold the WST/Club to account over disabled supporter issues. I say this as a former WST board member who was ‘tasked’ with initiating and running the DSA. Having done so, almost every request made to the WST/Club by the DSA thereafter was greeted with a mixture of responses from board members; some individuals were very positive but certain ‘key’ members were negative or apathetic. It was noticeable over time that the successes being achieved by the DSA weren’t being received with the full backing of the WST/Club as would normally be expected. This has culminated in the fiasco we’ve seen over the second platform; a wholly unnecessary mess created by the WST/Club because of their unwillingness to fully engage with the DSA: Why? Because they dislike taking advice from a successful independent voluntary group. Irony eh!
The DSA successes by the way have included:
Initiating monthly dementia friendly meetings.
Initiating autism friendly match days.
Manning disabled car parking spaces on match days.
Running transport to away matches for wheelchair fans (including Wembley three times).
Raising funds and implementing the provision of the first wheelchair viewing platform.
Manning and organising the rota for the wheelchair viewing platform.
Initiating the provision of half time refreshments in situ for wheelchair supporters.
Initiating the ADC scheme for partially sighted fans.
Fund raising for the provision of a second wheelchair viewing platform.
Payment for the provision of architectural work and advice for the above.
Providing advice and support on disability matters to individuals and the WST/Club.

Clearly, the WST/Club do not want the DSA involved in these matters any longer; therefore my WST membership has just become unnecessary[/QUOTE]

Oh dear.

That's pretty much as damning as it comes from a former WST board member. I'll await the usual suspects to tell me Terry has some kind of sinister agenda - except we're not dealing with property developers any more are we? These are fans and volunteers.

You can still use your WST membership to put your name down for an EGM.

Let's take our club back.

Up until a few weeks ago I was behind the board, now I wouldn’t trust them with a burnt match to be honest.

[QUOTE=Vambo;2304790]It may have been dictated by the time required to set up alternative arrangements, but I'm not defending either side in an issue which seems to have been handled very badly.[/QUOTE]

Possibly. I personally can’t see why something would have come up meaning they couldn’t send the email earlier in the week rather than at 5pm the day before a response was needed at noon.
