  1. No, I have absolutely no association with Kibble. I can't think of a reason why they wouldn't provide the text of the trust deed. Charities are obliged to give a copy of their governing document and/or accounts to anyone that asks for them. You don't even need to give them a reason for asking although they are entitled to charge a reasonable fee for provision. However, in the case of a multi-million pound charity it would seem slightly churlish of them to charge! I'm not sure what would be considered a reasonable time for them to comply with the request.
  2. Apologies. You said that you were interested in seeing the objects (aims) of the charity so I thought it might be helpful for you to have a link to them. Given that it is the social enterprise that is cited as the party that SMISA are dealing with, I assume that it is not actually the charity constituted by trust but rather a company limited by guarantee which is constituted by memorandum and articles of association. You can get that off the Companies House website if you wish but if you can't be bothered looking, I can tell you that the objects of the company are the same as those stated on the OSCR website that I linked.
  3. This might help ... https://www.oscr.org.uk/about-charities/search-the-register/charity-details?number=10048 The subsidiary charity, Kibble Education and Care Centre, has the same objects and charitable purposes. As does Kibbleworks.
  4. It would only be libelous (defamation in Scotland) if it's not true ...
  5. Kibble appears to comprise three registered charities: - Kibble School (Miss Elizabeth Kibbles Trust) which is constituted via a Deed of Trust. This is the parent charity for the other two charities. - Kibble Education and Care Centre which is also a company limited by guarantee. - Kibbleworks which is a company limited by guarantee and is a small part of the overall operation in revenue terms. They may have other non-charitable trading companies. Without commenting on the merits of the proposal to acquire shares, none of that in and of itself represents a cause for concern. These are slightly complex but perfectly normal governance arrangements for larger charities.
  6. None. No messages. No calls. Not heavily used by the look of things!
  7. Mobile picked up from a puddle in the away stand at Hamilton after the game today. Not locked but no obvious contact info for the owner. If anyone recognises it, let me know & I can arrange to return.
  8. How about 3.17 into this as posted earlier? Don't look to be trying to me ... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/scotland/45316797
  9. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/scotland/45316797 Are we now in the realms of openly downing tools to get rid of the manager? From about 3:17 this is shocking from McGinn and Magennis and it wasn't an isolated incident. At least Magennis makes a half-hearted late run here to track the Livingston player who strolls past him, McGinn does nothing. Stubbs' signings might be genuinely rubbish or they could be young boys struggling to find their feet, but regardless, you would expect the team captain (and fans' hero) to at least try to set an example and give them a hand. To then openly criticise them, and by implication, the manager in the press is hugely unhelpful and disruptive.
  10. Nah, I just used your post as a platform for my relatively mild gripe at having to shell out an extra £115 on account of a 13th birthday falling a few days before the renewals open. Mind you, if the club are really setting their pricing age bands on the basis that 13 year olds have a new found opportunity to earn a few quid on a paper round, that seems a tad mean spirited!
  11. It's my (soon to be) 13 year old that I feel sorry for. Or rather, I feel sorry for myself since it's me that's paying. I'm not clear on the logic behind charging a 13 year old £115 more than a 12 year old. His ability to earn an income hasn't changed! Otherwise the pricing structure looks very reasonable.
  12. Agree wholeheartedly. Couldn't hear anything from the crowd because of the ridiculous level of the music coming from the PA system. It was the same pre-match on Saturday. This seems to have become a feature of modern football stadiums. The crowd should create the atmosphere. Stuff coming over the PA will not.
  13. Think you can watch it on SFA Facebook or Youtube.
  14. My folks are still down the road on the corner of Rannoch! Would be good to catch up with you both, although I'm not sure about inviting any gloating Thistle fans along - too painful! I'll tell him you were both asking for him though!
  15. Yup. You & John Cameron (?) a couple of years ahead of me, making a grand total of 3 St Mirren fans!
