Club news on the volunteer  Day Empty
PostSubject: Club news on the volunteer Day   Club news on the volunteer  Day EmptyMon Jun 24, 2019 9:31 am

OVER 80 members of the Green Army have graciously stepped forward to volunteer for our Day of Action on Sunday, July 7.

The club is overwhelmed by the generosity of spirit evidenced by the supporters, which includes contributions from qualified tradespeople, as well as event sponsors PASOTI (Plymouth Argyle Supporters on the Internet), the Green Taverners and Need-a-Cab 247.

Event lead Christian Kent, the club’s Head of Corporate Hospitality and Events, said: “We are extremely thankful for the support provided by local businesses and members of the Green Army.

“What began as a plea to help us tidy up our magnificent stadium has now evolved into quite a huge undertaking. We are excited about the groundswell of support and hope to make a real lasting impact on Home Park with our community effort.”

As a token of our gratitude for volunteering efforts, the club has organised a number of initiatives to take place on the day, with the intention of combining the Day of Action with a family day out. The Green Taverners are laying on breakfast and lunch for volunteers, while Argyle Community Trust have organised a range of activities for children. including table-tennis, 8-ball pool and video games. In addition, all participants will be given a complimentary ticket to a future first-team friendly.

It will not only be supporters putting in the toil, though, as club personnel, from academy players through to representatives from the Board of Directors, will also be attending on the day.

Some of the areas to be tackled during the Day of Action include landscaping, both inside and outside of the ground, painting, power-washing and tidying up ground-boards and advertising hoardings. The corner area located between the Devonport End and the new Mayflower Grandstand, known to some as Bobby’s Garden, will also be tidied up.

What has become clear, through this project, is that all involved with Argyle, from stakeholders to staff members, have embraced the ‘one Argyle’ ethos. The outpouring of support means that the Day of Action is likely to be able to tackle more tasks than initially expected. If you have any suggestions for projects to be undertaken by our hundred-strong community contingent, please do get in touch – we would welcome ideas on how to improve the look and feel of the Theatre of Greens.

In addition, if you are interested in making a contribution to the Day of Action, no matter how big or small, please do get in touch with Christian on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

There is still time to sign up for what is sure to be an uplifting experience.

Eighty people trying to wash away seven years of Brent's stench. If you're going get in the breakfast queue before Nool or you'll be going hungry.
I did see that a first team game ticket is being offered instead of reserves that's a bit more like it but I was hoping the bucket rattling days were behind us.

Still only a friendly ticket Ears.....80 people should easily have been given at least a first team match fixture ticket considering how many £1000's will be saved as opposed to employing proper laboureres etc to do the work
Agree though the bucket rattling lives on for eternity whilst people are guillible enough to fall for it

There'll be a mix of people doing this. Some will be normal fans with not much else going on in their lives. Some will be perhaps so skint that the offer of a free ticket to a pre-season game appeals to them.

But then there will be the Newell-wannabe types. The sort of people desperate to emulate the Olympic Gold medal standard arse-licking that Newell has excelled in, since his Lord and Master arrived to line his pockets.

When it comes to some things such as this hallett will be brent mkII. Worryingly, it's looking more and more like the continuing brentness includes the paying budget too.

The czar nails it here.

But how high up (or down) the food chain should a club be for this to be acceptable. I totally get it at a non-league level, it keeps clubs like Parkway and Elburton Villa alive. I get it at Plymouth Speedway.

Clubs that pay full-time professionals players should be paying full-time professionals to do the work. Maybe excepting Exeter and the other Trust owned clubs where the money for this kind of thing comes directly from the fans pockets.

If that person wishes (say some kind of tradesman) to do some work on the side for the club and not get paid, or get some tickets in kind, then that's up to them but at least their work will be of a required standard.

Any club where the chairman reaps the windfalls from success, who may profit from the sale of the club, well then they should be paying for these services like everyone else.

Not sure why there is such bad feeling about it.

If people want to offer up their services, to help improve the environment and save the club some money, why not?

If that's not for you, then you just don't offer your services.

Theres always been individuals and groups that have supported the club in various ways, this isn't a new phenomenon and I can't see it stopping any time soon or why there would be a need to stop it.

Are views on here so entrenched, that everything is viewed with suspicion and negativity first and foremost?

if it was a community owned club then I would have no problem helping but to increase the value of a private business?

Zackly and we are always being told "it's their club they can do what they like with it." Was Hallett there paint brush in hand?

I'm wondering if the mankover is taking so long because it's staffed with volunteer senior greens?

That's one way to look at it, however rather than increasing value of a private business, I look at it as the more money saved, the more available for the squad and hopefully future success.

I absolutely agree we should'nt be dependent on the services of volunteers and unpaid workers, but theres no harm utilising peoples goodwill if offered.

What CE had to say about the Ladapo cash today - ''The sale of Ladapo will boost the funds available to new Pilgrims’ boss Ryan Lowe, although he is unlikely to get all of the cash in his playing budget.
There are other areas of the club, such as infrastructure projects and maintenance, that could benefit as well''.
