Kibble’s new events and entertainment centre was officially opened in 2016 by the Deputy First Minister, John Swinney MSP. ‘The Experience’ is based in the former Rolls-Royce aero engine factory in Hillington Park and hosts Scotland’s first indoor electric Go-kart track. Developed in three phases, the venue has already been given 5-star accreditation by Visit Scotland.

“It might sound like an unusual combination to have culinary arts mixed with go-karting, but with 70% of 16-19 year olds starting their careers in the hospitality industry, The Experience gives young people meaningful opportunities. I have no doubt that destinations of their careers have been helped by the knowledge and confidence received by being in a supportive workplace. As a social enterprise, The Experience will operate on a sustainable model to provide opportunities for years to come.”

Eileen Cummings, Director of Young Workforce Development, Kibble Group

The Experience will be turned into a skills academy now. Maybe basic accounting skills could be taught.

I read the CEO blames the pandemic for the closure. That nasty virus can even burn right through £1.9M.

It also got the blame for many failures at our club. Maybe it caused the Health & Safety issue too? 

That's what you were meaning? 🤣🤣🤣 Jesus that's even more of a ridiculous overreaction than I thought!

Wow... Point of agreement for us.

I would personally like to see the club go for an electronic only option. As in just send the barcodes out via email, app or some other platform and anyone that doesn't have a mobile device or physically wants the card/ wallet can still get one. 

Would love to see someone make a negative out of that idea... If anyone could, they're on this forum. 😅

Anyway, that's another one of the summer problem sorted ✔️ 

Well done Kibble (assume since they got the blame from some, they will also get the praise from the same group)

Loved keeping my old tickets to look back on, shame it’s all going electronic these days, a lot of games and gigs over the years, cup final tickets etc, great keepsakes to have. But I suppose that’s the way the worlds going now.

I had a look at that figure, I'm no financial expert but noticed 2 figures in the published accounts expenditure page.

One was the figure of £1.9m for Impairment charges.

The other was a (£2.1m) up £1.9m from the previous year with the title (Decrease) in creditors.

With the total expenditure decreasing from £84,083 to £60,758

Anyone knowledgeable to explain if they actually made a a loss of £1.9m according to those figures?

Me neither. But I’m only going by what I read & understood in the accounts. It certainly cannot be all blamed on the pandemic.

My last point was a generalisation of how the private and public sector are working. I don’t know the inner sanctum workings of SMFC. (I will leva that to you)

However i note that we have the following

A CEO, Chairman, GM, Directors, Non Exec Directors, Commercial Mangers, Head of Brand Management to name a few. Seems top heavy to me.

Do we have a Head Chef to make the sausage rolls

Who is the we you refer to. Is that a give away to your employer.

The guy is so very obviously either a Kibble plant. Maybe an employee or perhaps a member of their PR team but his constant presence on this site is a clear sign that he's on a mission to overcome any dissenters from the Kibble party line. For example, he refers to " a few minor issues" - a training ground that is still unfit for purpose 4 or 5 months after the season ended? A minor issue? No, that's very much a major issue - one of many major issues. I decided a wee while ago not to engage in any further dialogue with him as it's a complete waste of time. He's simply a Kibble apologist whose "opinions" are worthless.

Can’t beat a good conspiracy theory. Around a decade of posting all leading up to me being able to defend the Kibble to the St Moan loyal. 😂 

Remember I used to ‘definitely’ be on the club board as well… What a career. 
 

Legacy training ground issues, all the Kibbles fault. Lol.

No idea why this came to mind.

The work to repair the training ground came to a halt, but you must know that and why.

It was not because of a legacy issue, that's for sure.

Lack of trusses according to the Chairman iirc.

I knew it came to a halt, I don’t know why but please enlighten me with your ‘Kibble bad’ negative view on it?
