COMMERCIAL REPORT 2017
The Club would like to take this opportunity to thank all our Sponsors and Advertisers for their support during the past season. We are fully aware of the effects of the present economic climate and are very grateful for all the financial support which has been given to the Club which has played a big part in the success of the Club.
We very much appreciate the sponsorship packages with our main sponsors, the Talbot Social Club, John & Margo Kiltie, Unison (South Ayrshire), Emerald Contracts, Only Sport Ltd our kit supplier, Pro-Turfcare Ltd our pitch partners and finally Martin & White Ltd.
We sincerely hope that we can continue to count on this support in the new season as we seek to maintain the success and high profile of the Club.
BEECHWOOD REGENERATION REPORT 2017
This year has been another very productive one for the Regeneration Committee. The completion of the new toilet blocks was very swiftly followed by the construction of the new catering facility / memorabilia shop.
Both projects relied on grant funding and BRC are indebted to the Minerals Trust and the Scottish Football Partnership for the financial assistance. Just as important was the help from the Talbot support, in particular with the Catering Facility. Without this help, the project would not have been possible.
The catering facility and shop has been the first project where the money provided by the supporters has exceeded the grant funding. A total of around £12,000 will be spent with only £4,700 from grant funding. That money has been raised in various ways such as the Memorabilia Shop, entrance to the stand and bucket collections. Our thanks must go to all Talbot fans for this support.
The BRC are now turning their attention to two new projects – refurbishing the Talbot shop/ groundman’s hut and also new hospitality facilities. Our intention is to relocate John Holroyd’s old portacabin to the top of the terracing to the right of the stand. If all goes to plan, this will become the new hospitality suite with much improved facilities for sponsors. The Regeneration Committee hope to release more details soon.
In the meantime, thanks to everyone who has assisted in all our projects so far and we look forward to your continued support.
