    Are the old hospitality boxes in the FF used for anything these days?
    Is that not part of the NHS Hub project?

    Hi there,

    This is something we took to the board last year after a few conversations with a parent who had lasted 10 minutes with his autistic son at a match. All he ever wanted to do was do the normal parent/child activity of going to the football.

    Frank and I proposed to the board and the board felt that the community foundation would be best placed to look into this. The reason being that they are best placed when it comes to funding etc.. Frank and myself also met with the foundation to discuss. Itís certainly not been a No from the club or foundation but does require a lot of work should they be able to facilitate.

    The lack of space at the moment is something which is a major issue. The FF boxes cannot be used unfortunately as the area up there requires renovation.

    We also now have a Disabled Liaison Officer and after speaking with Frank this morning re this, Anne (our DLO) will be following this up with the Foundation.

    It wouldnít be a crŤche facility if we can get something in place but a place as youíve all suggested, where parents can take their children to watch the match in a safe and quiet environment. Thatís what started the conversations in the first place.

    Any further information I receive I will let you know.

    Myself and Frankís email addresses are:

    tsmith@hibernianfc.co.uk

    fdougan@hibernianfc.co.uk

    Thanks

    Tracey

    That would have been a great opportunuity. Unfortunately, the "fans" view was it should be a single tier stand so that's what we got
    And Iím glad it was. Atmosphere wouldíve been killed had that been a similar build to the West.

    One thing I would be interested to hear is regards Traceyís statement there about the FF boxes needing renovated. Could we get some clarity on whatís happening with that stand?

    NHS - is it still going ahead?
    Lift - is it still closed/need fixed?
    BTG - will it be open etc?
    Boxes - how long have they lay empty? Why havenít they been renovated already? What does this Ďrenovationí entail? A lick of paint etc? Yes it may cost a wee bit but how much hospitality could we be missing out on?

    It wouldn't, in fact we could have had since 1875 in the lower tier and the atmosphere would've improved massively.

    Would be good to hear the answers to your questions above 👍

    Out of interest, what needs to go into a sensory room? If it's for a safe and quiet environment, is it much more than insulation, or is there other requirements?

    I could see how that could be perceived from what Iíve written.

    Itís not at all. The supporter I had spoken to regarding his son, did quite a bit of work re this and visited other clubs and big or small they all go down the funding route whether that be government funding or crowdfunding, hence the reason we spoke to the foundation about it as this is something they deal with on a daily basis.

    Hope that makes a bit more sense now

    I will answer the other questions as best I can but just to answer re the sensory room. It does need a room to be kitted out. It has to meet certain standards. Sorry donít have my research/notes in front of me.

    Hi there,

    I will answer these as best I can.

    NHS - discussions still ongoing

    Lift - this will remain the same this season. The lift really needs to be replaced

    BTG - have been advised the first floor will reopen. Some bits and pieces being done to freshen it up. This should hopefully be ready for the start of the new season

    Boxes - donít have an answer for this but will find out.

    The second floor needs a refurb and isnít fit for opening at present.

    The North Stand is a little tired looking. The club are looking at different ways to use the space whether that be the NHS as planned or something else.

    I know thatís not lots of information but what I do know at present.

    Anything further we will keep everyone posted.

    Thanks

    Tracey

    Not a dig at you Tracey & I'm not a lift engineer. But these things work on a basic principle.
    There are lifts at numerous high rise flats in Edinburgh & are the originals from day dot. If they ever break down they are always fixed. So I don't believe the club on this that it is beyond repair.

    Thanks Tracey.

    In regards to the NHS Iím slightly confused. I thought a deal was in place? Therefore Iím struggling to understand how discussions are now taking place? Are the discussions back at square one regards the space or something else?

    The parts are basically harder to get. I suppose itís a bit like older washing machines, boilers etc and as parts become obsolete or harder to get you eventually have to move onto a newer model.

    It also has a bearing on your insurance.

    Iím not a lift engineer either but obviously just bits and pieces Iíve picked up on.

    The discussions are ongoing. They havenít just started. Apologies if I gave you that impression.

    I know you are likely to want more information but unfortunately I am not involved in any discussions.
