Three filmmakers were also at the ground, shooting promotional and documentary films to support the bid. Director of football Adie Britten generously allowed cameras into the dressing room to film the half-time talk.
Local parliamentary candidates Steve Bradley and Ollie Middleton also came along to show their support.
Now that the football season is almost over, the next step will be to take the Big Bath City Bid into the city centre by running street stalls and setting up shop fronts. Volunteers should email email@example.com for details.
SUPPORTERS CLUB PLEDGES SHARES TO COMMUNITY BID
The Bath City Supporters Club voted on Saturday to support the Big Bath City Bid by pledging to transfer its 11,000 shares in Bath City FC to the new community club if the fundraising target is reached.
Daniel Tanner, chair of the Supporters Club, said:
“We're pleased to get behind the community ownership bid and help secure the future of the club so it remains in the heart of the community for generations to come.”
The Bath City Supporters Society, meanwhile, voted unanimously to add an ‘asset lock’ to its constitution, guaranteeing by law that its assets cannot be used for private gain. The move will help the Society qualify for Social Investment Tax Relief.
