Bluebirds Trust - Representing the fans of Barrow AFC

Bluebirds Trust 2018-19 AGM

Dear Member(s) of the Barrow Independent Supporters Society Ltd, (trading as The Bluebirds Trust),

I am writing to advise that the Annual General Meeting of the Barrow Independent Supporters Society (trading as the Bluebirds Trust) will be held at the Crossbar at The Furness Building Society Stadium, Holker St, Barrow in Furness on Saturday 2nd November 2019 at 11.00 am.

As we move forward as a Trust and now that we have a stake in the football club, the Trust Board feel it is essential that we continue to grow and involve as many of our members in our activities as possible. One way to help us in this way would be to stand for election to the Trust Board and we welcome nominations from those in the membership who wish to stand for election to the board, to further strengthen the board and help us progress as a Trust.

We would especially like anyone with an interest to serve as Treasurer to come forward. Our current Treasurer is standing down at this AGM and we must replace this vital role.

Those persons wishing to stand for nomination must observe the following rules:

Any person wishing to be a candidate for election to the Society Board must be a fully paid-up member of the Society and be nominated by at least one-fully paid-up member of the Society.

A signed letter of nomination from a member, or email from the address a member has given the secretary are acceptable substitutes for a signature on the candidate’s nomination form. 

An accompanying statement (minimum 100, maximum not exceeding 1000 words in total) outlining the candidate and their reasons for standing for election is also required. 

The deadline for nominations is midnight on Monday 30th September 2019. 

Nomination forms can be downloaded from

Nominations should be sent to: The Secretary, c/o Bluebirds Trust, 5 Aycliffe Drive, Buckshaw Village, Chorley, PR7 7GD  or

For further details about nomination and serving on the board please email or call 07828 428 131 or  07897 343 579

If there are more nominations than posts available (maximum of 12) then an election shall take place at the AGM. Proxy voting forms for those unable to attend the AGM in person will be circulated with the Notice of AGM not less than 21 days before the meeting.

Any member wishing to raise a resolution at the AGM or raise any other item for discussion at that meeting, should do so in writing to the secretary including the justification for, form and content of the resolution at the addresses given above before Monday 30th September 2019

Full rules of the Society and Supporting Policies are available online at or on request to the Secretary.
