Thank You Thank You Thank You

Just like to thank everyone that came to our belated New Year Party on Monday night (1st March), and from the feedback we’ve had everyone enjoyed themselves and that to be honest is our main objective.

Thanks also to Steve Powell & Charlie Palmer for sharing the evening with us,  it was great to have two Rams legends in our presence, being able to be with and talk to anyone who has pulled on a black & white Rams shirt, always makes the evening that little bit special.

Because our New Year Party was late, it will be too soon to have an End of Season Party in May, so we’re looking to arrange something else which we will let you know about in due course.

New Help For Disabled Footie Fans

Disabled Football fans can now travel to away games more easily thanks to the Governments online Blue Badge Map. The map – accessed through the Directgov website – now includes accessibility information on more than 160 football stadia across the UK, as well as thousands of train stations – giving disabled supporters a realistic idea of accessibility and allowing them to book direct assistance in advance if required.

Former Southampton, Manchester United and England player Danny Wallace has Multiple Sclerosis and is an ambassador for the National Association for Disabled Supporters. He explained: “I know first hand how important Blue Badge Parking is for disabled people. I was pleased to hear that NADS and Directgov have been working together and sharing their information in this way. The Blue Badge Map is an important service and one that should help disabled fans across the UK.

The map can also be accessed on any internet-enabled mobile phone or television. More information can be found on:
