Last night (31/10) a packed, standing room only EGM was held at Canwick Park GC in Lincoln. This EGM was called to decide the fate of this 125 year old club.
The Committee laid out our financial situation, which showed how far we are in the red. I watched as male & female members, some with 40+ years under their belts, made impassioned speeches with tears in their eyes……..
One member – If you cut me you would find half of me belonged to Canwick Park. Another asked – Why are we paying Jesus College, Oxford, the landowner so much money in ground rent, when the land was given to the people of Lincoln, should they not be paying us for the upkeep of the land!
Do the landowners have ulterior motives and want the club to go to the wall, as the club is situated within the City of Lincoln, and on prime building land!!
People bared their souls but a motion was put forward to place the club into voluntary liquidation, which was passed as we couldn’t keep trading in our current financial situation.
