Our club has, over the years, been involved in various discussions/plans/ideas/possibilities to improve and develop facilities  for the Club. As yet we’ve not been able to bring anything to fruition –  a source of frustration to many of us as one of the largest Athletics clubs in Scotland
Following a decision of the AGM we have set up a Facilities Committee to lead the discussion and outline a plan for future facilities for Giffnock North.  The Committee is established and has met, although it would be fair to say that it’s work has been adversely affected as everything else by COVID-19.
The committee membership is as below:
Ronnie Gourley – Chair
Ian McMoneagle – Club Treasurer and Trustee
John Davie  – Coach Jumps
Rob Crusher – Senior Endurance Club Member, Parent and board member of East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure Trust.
Lesley Campbell – Parent  with interest in Junior Endurance and Sprints
Stephen Gourlay – Coach and Parent , Sprints & Hurdles
Clare Stevenson – Coach U11s and Trustee
Ronnie is a former coach at the Club Has a background in Education and Local Authority  Sports Development as well as Rugby Club Development. He is also a Member of Scottish Athletics Track and Field Commission and, of course, is Neil Gourley’s dad.
The Committee will undertake this work liaising with partners and reporting back to the Board.
This is the start of this journey and we are posting this statement to advise our Athletes, Coaches, Officials, Parents and Supporters. There will be a more formal consultation within the club at a later stage but in the meantime anyone who wishes to put forward any ideas or suggestions to the committee at this initial stage is very welcome to contribute. Please feel free to email either Ronnie Gourley  at r.gourley1@ntlworld.com ,Ian McMoneagle at marathon9@ntlworld.com or Clare Stevenson at c.stevenson@giffnocknorth.co.uk
