This is the scheme that the Club as recently applied to be included in.
We have been accepted into the scheme :)
The club has been accepted into the BeTT scheme. Derek & Joe are going to meet with Shaun Fitzpatrick on Tuesday 22nd August to discuss the scheme as Nailsea have been accepted into the scheme too. TTE are looking to see where they can provide shared support across an area as well as helping individual clubs. As much as we are behind this and will work with other local providers of TT our primary focus is to see how the BeTT Development scheme can benefit PTTC.
Derek has arranged a meeting with Lee Monk who is our TTE area Development Officer. The meeting is has been arranged for the 15th September at Derek's place at work. I have invited Steve Pratt to the meeting too as Steve and Lee have spoken separately concerning club Welfare issues so it will be good for Steve and Lee to meet. At the moment everything is about fact finding so nothing is being decided or arranged as ultimately any development path the club decides to go on will be a club decision. What would help me in the meeting however is if members can complete the BeTT Survey (see under Online Links) Lee will use data he collects from that survey in the meeting. You can put your name to your answers if you want to but you don't have to. Survey takes about 10mins. Thanks I will keep you all updated here.
I meet with Shaun Fitzpatrick on Monday (when I should of being playing for Ahoy oops) and we had a good discussion. We seem to be on the same page in that our focus is primarily on our individual clubs but we are open to collaborate wherever possible to grow and improve the TT offering in the local area. Defining the what the "local area" is something that we need to clarify with TTE. TTE are I believe looking to include our clubs into the Bristol area but Shaun and I agreed that we think we are geographically far enough removed from the central Bristol clubs to be looked at as a separate area. We shall see. Joe was unable to make the meeting on Monday but is hoping to join Steve Pratt and myself when we meet Lee from TTE on the 15th Sept. I will update following that meeting.
