Informal CFU Meeting Update: Change of Venue and Meet Marcus Bignot
Friday, 17 November 2017 11:43

The next informal CFU members meeting, scheduled forThursday 23rd November, will be a bit different from usual.

We are switching venue from the Blues Bar at the Swansway Chester Stadium to: The Anchor Pub in Saltney.

Members of the CFU board will welcome manager Marcus Bignot and CEO Mark Maguire with fans able to ask questions of everyone.

The change in venue to The Anchor in Saltney is part of a wider move by the board of directors to start encouraging more people to attend CFU meetings and to help raise the profile of City Fans United across Chester, Cheshire and North Wales. Jonny Hughes, Chair of City Fans United, said: “In football if you want success then you have to perform home and away, and that’s exactly what we have identified we need to do. “We have seen attendances at CFU meetings go down slowly over time, so it’s about time we did something different. “By taking more of a fan forum type approach to informal CFU meetings and switching venues to social clubs, halls and pubs in the places and areas our fans live in, we’re hoping to encourage more members to attend. “But, not only that. We need to start engaging with our fans and the wider public more, so the plan is to open up future fan forums to non-members also to help raise our profile and drive our membership forward.

The meeting will start at the usual time of 7:30pm.

The address for The Anchor is 5 High Street, Saltney, Chester, CH4 8SE.

We hope to see you there!
