Help the Hatters Update 46

Sunday 28 September was not only the day after County`s excellent FA Cup win at Harrogate, it was when County supporters pulled all the stops out again in an inspirational double whammy!

Gate Crew...." They Shall not Pass ...not without paying anyway !
First off...just before 06.00( yes unbelievable isn`t it, but such an hour does exist!), a band of Help the Hatters stalwarts were on site to open the Booth Street Car Park to set another giant Car Boot Sale in motion.

scb.....Man with a mission.....

It was a giant affair as well, as over 100 sellers plied their wares .The weather was amazingly balmy for the time of year, so expect Hurricane Herbert to be abroad for the next one!

Chris and David, `park em up !'
The organisation, put together by Angela Moore, was spot on and the effort will significantly bolster Help the Hatters efforts to assist the Club.

Fitzy and a barely discernible John Gaskin in the distance!
There will hopefully be one more Car Boot for 2014. A license has been applied for, for Sunday 19 October, so if you are able to help at any stage on that date ,please let Angela know via email

They`re off- the W.P begins work !

Nine o`clock saw Help the Hatters and the Stockport County Supporters Cooperative confirm that not only is `Stronger Together’ a neat tag line, but also the way forward for supporters of the Club, as the two organisations united effectively , meeting at the blues spiritual and actual home....Hardcastle Road ,for the Bungalow  Working Party organised to tackle the job of painting the front of the `Bung’ in response to the deal they concluded with Saint Saviour to donate 50p for every match day pint sold on their premises, to the Players Fund.
Lots to do.......

The colour scheme decided upon was white and blue.....unsurprising from a County perspective, but for a Labour Club something of a departure!

End of Bung WP 1....great start !

A good start was made, and other Working Party`s will follow, so please volunteer to help if you can. For sure there will be another W.P. this coming Sunday ( start 9 a.m) ,and there may be others before hand during the day. If you are available either during the day mid week or week-ends, let John Gaskin or myself know please.
