a) An e-mail had been received from a supporter enquiring about concessionary prices for students. IKE had previously circulated a comparison list of admission prices for the Conference North. It seems that only Telford and Farsley offer student discounts. However it should be pointed out that admission prices to Telford were £11 & £8. and if we charged those prices we to would consider other concessionary prices. Farsley have a student special because they are in an area that has a high number of students living there. After discussion it was agreed to retain the current price structure for this season but keep under review for next season.
