Peter Davies, who volunteered to be the Minutes Secretary last year, has kindly agreed to continue.

There will be a Special General Meeting of all members at Addisons this coming Thursday evening the 18th February 2016 to confirm these appointments. All HUST members are welcome and the evening starts at 7pm prompt.

Please join or rejoin and help maintain the energy and enthusiasm for our new club. It is £10 for adult membership and £1 for Juniors. Details on the HUST website or pick up a membership form the Reception desk by Addison’s Bar. HUST needs you!

50/50 Prize Draw……Bumper Prize Fund

Congratulations to our latest batch of winners, Dermot Walsh, Gareth Layton-Morris, Esmond Collins and Cliff Griffiths who all won prizes at the Alvechurch game. Their support and that of every person who buys a ticket is gratefully received and shows the warmth for our new Club. This was our best ever day for ticket sales so thank you.

Tickets could not be sold without the ongoing commitment of a great band of helpers who turn out in all weathers. So thank you to Karen, Nikki, Jean, Joanie, Derek, Andy, Nigel, Tom, Martin and Jeremy. To date we have raised just over £13,000 for HUST funds which will be used to purchase more shares in Hereford FC.

You’ve got to be in it to win it!

Prize Bull Lottery

The jackpot currently stands at £1,000 following the recent win by Jerry McManus. It is an excellent way of supporting the HUST fundraising effort and you could win a big prize! Either pick up an application form from the Reception desk by Addison’s Bar or enter online via the HUST website.

It costs just £4.33 per calendar month or you can increase your chances of winning with an “any 4 from 5” option at £21.65 per month.

Supporting the fund raising activities of HUST in turn supports Hereford FC.
