Trust's website for City fans
Trust's website for City fans

Please keep visiting the Trust's website for City news

The Trusts dedicated new website has now clocked-up well-over 5,000 unique visitors in the first four months since its launch.

The revamped site replaced the Save City website previously put in place in January 2002 at the time the Trust was first launched.

One of the key elements underlying the Trusts overall achievements over the past couple of years has been the Communications Strategy. The Trust has strived to achieve open and transparent communication on a timely basis with supporters (and the wider community). At times, some people have, rightly or wrongly, felt this has not always been achieved. At times, it has been challenging, when there have been so many other issues to deal with.

A variety of mechanisms have been (and continue) to be used by the Trust to communicate news. These include:
- A good working relationship with the Evening Press, enabling Trust news and key messages to reach a wide audience across the City and Region on a regular (and at times daily) basis;
- News through other written media local, regional and national;
- Other regional media including Radio and Television;
- The Trust News page in the Clubs Match Programme;
- Directly addressing the crowd through announcements at matches (on a number of occasions);
- Five public meetings within the past couple of years;
- Attending other fan meetings (such as those arranged by the Harrogate Minstermen);
- Trust Board members simply talking face-to-face with fellow City supporters;
- Written communication to Trust Members on several occasions during the past couple of years. However, this is a more expensive form of communicating (circa 400 to distribute a letter to 2,000 Trust Members);
- The Trusts regular E-Newsletters go out to around 1,400 registered people;
- Communication through the Arthur newsletter (that goes out daily to over 1,000 people) and other City related websites; and
- The Trusts website at

Anyone able to commit some time and skills to help the Trust on this front in the future, please do get in touch.
