The final proposal will reveal the "Investors" their intentions and the trust boards opinions.
That's when the 75% majority is required by the trust rules.
No longer true. I see the ex-WST spokesman who said Dickens and Moss were taking over for the right reasons is one of the people against it!

Just to avoid confusion -- possibly on my part -- can someone confirm that there is only ONE share for the actual Wrexham AFC, which is held by the WST Chairman on behalf of all WST members.

The other shares we purchased are for a separate holding.

I got confused by this.
The WST purchased the Only share to acquire the football club.
However. Every pound invested in the club is registered as a share. Not a separate holding.

The old number is still valid if they signed up last year. maybe not if their membership had lapsed.
Only need the 1 ID to log onto zoom unless they're in different rooms.
As for voting, contact Mi vote and they'll sort it.[/QUOTE]



Mine lapsed a few years ago but quoted the old Membership Number when making payment to renew.

It worked, just received voting details through the post. Not sure why the WST did not respond by email as it would have been immediate and saved the WST time and cash?

Voted FOR of course

I am still confused on this issue -- must be old age!

Can anyone from the WST please give a definitive answer to how many shares there are, and who owns them.

I bought something for £100 many moons ago, but am not really sure its worth.

This might help, from the WST website.

What is a Trust?

A Supporters Trust is a democratic organisation of supporters.

The Trust is its membership; that is, every single person who has signed a Trust membership form. The Board is just the vehicle by which the Trust will establish itself. They are elected by a democratic election at which any member is eligible to stand for office.

The Trust is an Industrial & Provident Society (IPS) fully regulated by the Industrial and Provident Societies Act and accountable for all its financial dealings and transactions. An IPS belongs to its membership. Literally. Every member owns a £1 nominal share in the Trust. Those shares cannot be traded or transferred. The share entitles the member to a vote; one member – one vote. Each eligible member has the right to stand for election to the Trust Board, to vote in the election of Trust Board representatives and to attend the AGM.

Our constitution has been drawn up by Cobbetts, a law firm which works close with the Co-operative party and the Co-operative Bank. Cobbetts are widely regarded as the country’s leading experts in this area. Everything that the Trust does is guided and controlled by its constitution. The rules of the Trust are available for inspection from the Trust. It is also situated on the Trust’s web site Wrexham Supporters Trust – Our Club Our Future Alternatively, it can be requested by post on payment of a £2.50 fee (to cover copying and postage fees).

The beauty of being an IPS is that it has a written constitution in place that ensures all the administrative and financial details are clearly defined and transparent – a basic essential so that all members can have faith in the structure of the Trust, so allowing them to concentrate on the real work of the Trust, and ensuring that the Trust is a democratic society.

- All actions and conduct regulated by Registrar of Friendly Societies.
- Registrar ensures the Trust and its officers act legally and appropriately in respect of our Constitution.
- The Trust is guided and controlled by the Constitution – based on a tried and test model drawn up specifically for Supporters’ Direct by an expert in the field.
- The Trust belongs to its membership – one member, one share with a nominal value of £1.
- Shares cannot be traded or transferred nor do they carry any rights to interest, dividend or bonus.
