Help the Hatters Update 53

Another busy week just ended for Stockport County supporters, but it started with a mighty bang, as County supporters the world over put their hands into their pockets and raised a magnificent £ 3200 for the Players one single day.....Blue Monday! This fantastic result is the culmination of the ideas and energy of County fan Steve Gibbons, coordinated and managed brilliantly by Help the Hatters and the Stockport County Supporters Cooperative! Better Together never better show cased!

Thursday saw another Indoor Working Party at the Bungalow, and the 12 supporters who turned out did a decent amount of painting- the only wall not to have had at least one coat now being the problem wall nearest the football ground. Plans are in hand to tackle this over the coming months, so bear with us, we will get it sorted!
 Saturday was County`s game against hot promotion favourites Guiseley, and before the match there was the usual warm welcome for Supporters in the Bungalow, which by 2pm was comfortably full.
The new TV was in place and the Vicar`s copy of the County History DVD got an airing, whilst County`s new medical man, Mark Brown, popped in being introduced to the throng by Supporters Cooperative Chairman Peter Towey.

Help the Hatters latest recruit, Lewis Burns,  went round with the card, and the whole day( pods, pints, pies and card) raised in excess of £700 for the Players Fund- another great effort!

Remember.....every pint sold at the Bung pre match, and in the hour after the game, earns dosh for the Players Fund. So...why not make a point of popping in on Boxing Day when County are matched against Colwyn Bay. There will be mulled wine, mince pies and stuff like that awaiting you- what`s not to like!
On to Sunday and the Tidy Squad were on duty inside Edgeley Park tidying up as their title suggests.

Product of just one hours work!
A dozen bin bags were crammed with litter when the Squad had concluded their labours ( in about an hour), and we are very grateful for the effort made by the supporters concerned, who are a credit to the Club!
If you want to join them you can contact Lee Townley  on 07832 217777, or just turn up. I will be issuing bulletins as to times/ days as /when appropriate so watch the blog and/or your in tray!

We are aware that perhaps there could be more litter bins stationed about E.P. , and we are on the case as we speak, but it would help considerably if supporters would put litter in those bins that are inside the ground ,rather than under or near a seat or anywhere else. Thanks in advance for your help with this one!

This week is an important week for the Supporters Cooperative who`s AGM it is on Thursday 11th  at 7.30 pm at the Bungalow. If you are a member please turn up and play a part. If you are not, still turn up and consider joining!
