See the powerful attached letter

which was submitted for publication...

and the covering correspondence below...

Dear Andy,

Many thanks for your reply and your help with this matter. It is much appreciated.

I really didn’t think I would still have to be banging the sexism drum in 2018….!!

Just to re-iterate the point that Newbury Ladies FC are members of Newbury Community Football Group (NCFG) and this is the umbrella organisation for ALL community football interests in Newbury and this is really the group that West Berks Council should be consulting with and working with. Democratically they should not be ignoring NCFG and we all feel very passionately about bringing them to account on this point.

And I know that NCFG are in total sync with all the points that I raised in my earlier open letter for publication.

Thanks again and if you need any further, please feel free to get back in touch.

Best regards,

Dear Sue

Thank you for your brilliant letter. Well said. I’m afraid it was too late for this week’s paper but I will make sure it is in a prominent position next week.

Kind regards
