Statement From the Trust and Football Cub Regarding the Planning Application for Champion Hill

The Club and Dulwich Hamlet Supporters Trust are pleased to announce that London Borough of Southwark have confirmed the date of a planning committee in which we can expect our application for a new stadium to be determined.

The council last week informed the club that they are targeting the committee meeting on April 22nd, subject to the completion of all reports, to decide the outcome of what has been a long journey for the club.

Since the original consultation there has been positive engagement between all parties involved in the process and as a result some changes have been made to the scheme to incorporate the feedback from stakeholders.

As a result, the application is subject to a short re-consultation period where public comments can be submitted again until March 12.

If you have not commented before it is really important that you take this opportunity to support the club at this crucial time. If you have supported the application before, please do so again during this further consultation period to demonstrate  your continuing support. Remember the deadline is only a week away.

We would like to thank everyone that has supported the club during this long process and has worked towards the goal of securing a decision on the development of a new stadium and sporting hub for the community. Should the application be rejected the club will not be able to continue in its current form at the heart of its community so it is important that everyone’s voice is heard.

PLEASE support the club, the community, and East Dulwich as a whole. Details of how to leave a comment are below.

Feedback can be submitted by following three steps.

  1. Click on this link: https://planning.southwark.gov.uk/online-applications/
  2. In the ‘Simple Search’ section enter ‘19/AP/1867’ and click on Search
  3. Click on ‘Comments
  4. Click on ‘Make a Comment’
  5. Complete the form

Please note the form has changed since the last consultation and if you are commenting to support the application you need to click on ‘Support’ in the ‘Stance’ field and also there is only one option in the ‘Reason for comment’ field which is ‘Reasons for Support’.

We would like to thank you for your ongoing support.

Programme Notes – Dulwich Hamlet Women’s v Leyton Orient

LGBT history month

For the third year running the Supporters’ Trust have produced a limited edition Dulwich Hamlet Rainbow scarf to celebrate LGBT History Month.  Alongside the scarves we have produced beanies and trucker caps that feature the club crest in the colours of the LGBT+ Rainbow Flag.

The scarves are priced £10, with beanies £10 and Truckers £12.  A percentage of the profits from the scarf sale are being be split and donated to Football v Homophobia and AKT (Albert Kennedy Trust).

In addition, Club rainbow crest button pins (50 pence each) and Rainbow laces in stock. Only £3 per pair with all profits donated to Stonewall.

On Saturday 1 February, when the Men’s team played Chelmsford City at Champion Hill, the Trust presented a cheque of £600 to Brian Stokes from Football v Homophobia (FvH), FvH is an organisation that all football supporters in this country will be aware of.

FvH was originally conceived and launched by the Justin Campaign in 2010 to raise awareness of homophobia, that was prevalent in both grassroots and professional football. The Trust and football club have been supporting FvH for many years and it was great to meet Brian on the day.

Our second charity to receive profits from the rainbow scarf is AKT who were formed in Manchester in 1989 to offer support to LGBT+ young people facing homelessness or living in a hostile environment. It now has additional offices in London and Newcastle that also offers support in finding safe homes in addition to support with things like employment, education and training. We will be present a cheque of £600 to AKT representatives at the next home fixture in March.

Save the date

On Thursday 27 February the Trust will be holding a quiz in the clubhouse on behalf of the club’s charity partners Redthread and Football Beyond Borders. The evening will begin at 7pm with the quiz scheduled to start at 7.30pm, entry is £5 per person with a maximum of 6 people in a team.

 

Enjoy the match today and we look forward to seeing you in the clubhouse later for post-match chat.

Programme Notes v Tonbridge

Welcome to today’s game against Tonbridge Angels who sit only two points below Dulwich with a number of games in hand, so let’s get behind the team today in this good old fashioned six pointer.

Thank you to everyone who attending our fundraiser quiz on Thursday and I hope you all had an enjoyable evening.  The event raised money for this season’s club charity partners Redthread and Football Beyond Borders and was brilliant hosted by Dulwich Hamlet comedy club’s Alexandra Haddow.  If you have not been to the comedy night at the club bar, then I would highly recommend it and the next night is tomorrow at 18:00 (comedy starts at 19:00).  Tickets priced £8 or £5 for concessions and are available on the night.

Myself and fellow Board member Mel Hughes attended the Football Beyond Borders Annual Showcase event at Tottenham’s new White Hart Lane stadium on Wednesday 12 April.  What an amazing evening it was and it was great to see how much this great organisation has grown over the years, positively effecting more schoolchildren than ever before.

Following their victory in the Capital Senior Cup last weekend, against a strong Leyton Orient team the women’s team now face Crystal Palace on Sunday 15 March at Champion Hill.

In front of a very vocal crowd of 222, Jo Gibson’s one goal was enough to secure a one – nil victory and a place in the semi-final.

Last weekend we ran a supporters coach to Bath City to watch the league’s second place team come out late winners three – two.  Before the game, a number of the Trust Board meet with fellow Bath City Board members.  Over recent years, the Trust has built up a great  friendship with them and we often share ideas and the odd pint.

In May 2017 the club completed its transition into being a community ownership football club and have been giving us advice regarding our future fundraising as we seek to continue of percentage of ownership on Dulwich Hamlet, which currently sits at around 20%.   Bath are also going through the planning process with the local Bath Council as they seek to redevelop their stadium starting with a new main stand.  We wish them well with their future plans.

The last planned coach of the season will be to our last fixture of the season when we visit Concord Rangers on Canvey Island.  More information regarding this will be published shortly, but in the meantime do please let us know if you would be interested in traveling with us for the game by either popping into the Mega-container shop or email info@dhst.or.uk.

Reaching the final few months of the season, we are already looking forward to the next Board election in summer 2020.  As always, we are always keen to hear from anyone who may be interested in standing for Trust board.  If you are interested, or maybe just want to get more involved by volunteering, do come and speak with us to find out what future opportunities there are in helping the Trust and football club.

Enjoy the game

Programme Notes v Welling United

Welcome to Champion Hill for the league fixture against fellow South London club Welling United.

Rainbow Scarves

For the third year running the Supporters’ Trust have produced a limited edition Dulwich Hamlet Rainbow scarf to celebrate LGBT History Month.  Alongside the scarves we have produced beanies and trucker caps that feature the club crest in the colours of the LGBT+ Rainbow Flag.

The scarves are priced £10, with beanies £10 and Truckers £12.  A percentage of the profits from the scarf sale are being be split and donated to Football v Homophobia (FvH) and AKT (Albert Kennedy Trust).  In addition, Club rainbow crest button pins (50 pence each) and Rainbow laces in stock. Only £3 per pair with all profits donated to Stonewall.

These items went on sale when Chelmsford City visited Champion Hill at the begging of the month.  On the day the game was attended by Brian Stokes from FvH and at HT he accepted a cheque for £600 for this organisation, which was the Trust’s donation from the sale of the rainbow scarves.

FvH was originally conceived and launched by the Justin Campaign in 2010 to raise awareness of homophobia, that was prevalent in both grassroots and professional football. The Trust and football club have been supporting them for many years and it was great to meet Brian on the day.

We were due to welcome representatives from AKT at last Sunday’s women team fixture that sadly got postponed due to bad weather.  AKT formed in Manchester in 1989 to offer support to LGBT+ young people facing homelessness or living in a hostile environment.  It now has additional offices in London and Newcastle that also offers support in finding safe homes in addition to support with things like employment, education and training. We hope to invite them to the re-scheduled fixture later in the year and we have also donated £600 to this organisation.

Coach Travel

We hope to be running a supporters coach to the fixture at Bath City next Saturday (22 February) and a number of people have already booked their places on the coach.  The proposed coach will leave Champion Hill at 10.30am costing £19 for adults, £14 concessions.  Booking can be made at the Mega-contianer shop at today’s game or online at DHFCshop.co.uk
