Dear all this is a formal notice of an Extraordinary General Meeting of members to be held on Tuesday evening 18th April at 8:30pm at ILTSC (the tennis club on Stourton Road LS29 9BG).

Many of you will know already of the Junior section’s plans to build a compact training facility at Ben Rhydding alongside the Hockey and Football Clubs’ new developments. Briefly, this includes an 8 lane 100m straight, jumping and throwing areas and further training space. The Junior section is over 300 strong with long waiting lists, constrained in its activities particularly during the winter. This would provide considerably better facilities and room to expand, thereby introducing more youngsters into the sport as well as supporting and developing talented athletes with proper, local training facilities. The meeting will also enable the team developing their plans to present them.

A new, separate company is proposed to manage the whole scheme. The committee propose that in order for the Harriers to participate formally and legally an amendment is recommended to our Constitution along the lines of: 

Item 2e of the constitution: The club supports the development of local athletics facilities in furtherance of the club’s objectives, including as required the participation in legal entities set up to provide these.  

Please put the date in your diary and further details will be sent nearer the time. We need a quorum of members to vote in favour for this to happen and hence, whatever your views, it is crucial we hear them in order for Harriers members to make an informed, representative decision.

Various organisations in the town have said they would like to support this development and therefore, in the mean time, you may see mention in the press and social media of the team involved actively applying for grants and donations.
