Just a quick note to say thank you to the 32 supporters that joined the protest last night outside BDBC offices prior to the council meeting. Over 15 councillors signed a petition to show their support to ‘Keep Football in Basingstoke’.
We were also joined by two fans from Brighton, who came along to show their support.
From speaking to the councillors when we went inside, they were surprised at the number of people who turned out on a Thursday night at 5.30pm; they were expecting only a handful.
Your presence helped reinforce the issues and helped push through the vote for a separate meeting.
When we get more information about the next council meeting, we’ll be sure to update you.
