A very useful, easy to understand explanation of a set up I have found baffling - also great to see Kev Adams directly involved.

The whole messy saga is moving to a logical, understandable,workable and sustainable structure that should be good for the wider, local community

Reading it seems to state that if the trust approves it can sell parts of the Rec. Would the club try to do that I wonder?

Would the club try to do what?

Unlikely, as it would be against its charitable objectives.

Buy part of the Rec, I don't think it is likely but it does now seem possible.

Agreed it is unlikely but it is not necessarily against the charitable objectives.

If the trust can demonstrate that they can further the trusts objectives (ie provide a venue for outdoor games and pastimes) by selling the Rec in whole or part and buying land elsewhere then they can do so.

I think it makes all of the sense in the world to extract a large price from BC for selling the Rugby part of the Rec to him and then using the cash to create new outdoor sports facilities in another location.

Think of Dorchester Cricket, Rugby and Football Clubs who sold out to Tesco and created fantastic new facilities. Same with Newbury Rugby Club, Manchester Rugby Club and of course locally Trowbridge
