The Feedback Sandwich
In teaching you are always encouraged to use five positives to every negative when giving feedback! I think it's a very generous feedback sandwich! I preferred to make them with doorsteps of plain white warburtons no fancy seeded organic malted nonsense!

Re: Fans Forum - Wednesday 8th June

It was a good turnout and everyone there seemed happy with the assurances and words of wisdom provided by Paul Holland and Steve Welsh. Liam Hearn and Luke Foster also contributed well. Paul Holland stated that the Club needed all supporters onside so lets hope that this is a new beginning for the Club and supporters working together.

Re: Fans Forum - Wednesday 8th June

Paul Holland did really well by "answering" many of the questions before they were asked despite declining any prior knowledge of what would be asked. I don't think the forum could have gone any better from the Club's point of view.
