Wednesday 6th February 2019.
To all Hastings & District Supporters Club Members.
Due to the very significant change in my recent personal circumstances of which some of you may already be aware, I will regrettably not be in a position to continue to run the Supporters Club. I will however endeavour to ensure that the season's remaining responsibilities are carried out, and in doing so provide assistance and guidance to any member wishing to take over the role moving forward.
I would like to ask members for their understanding that in doing so I will need to keep the time involved in my completing this down to a minimum wherever possible, as I will be wishing to allocate as much of the next few months as possible to my wife who within the last few weeks has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Whilst this would naturally have led to my being unwilling to allocate the significant time necessary to continue to attend games regularly and run the club, the newly added aspect of myself also having now just received a diagnosis of advanced prostate cancer has of course further confirmed as to where my time and energies will need to now be best spent in the coming months.
I look forward to your assistance in helping me to help you by ideally making the season's remaining admin workload as light and stress free as possible, and my thanks in advance to everyone for your understanding.
Best wishes .... Mark Barfoot.
