The MKDSA have been in ongoing discussions with the club on the recent updates regarding Lewington’s bar.  We are now able to comment as follows.

“The MKDSA would like to update our members & supporters around the ongoing dialogue with the club regarding the proposals for Lewington’s bar.”

“We met with the club this Thursday to review plans for a swift resolution to the issues that arose recently due to compliance, fire safety regulations & building control.”

“During the meeting with the club, MKDSA & members of the Supporters Board, we were presented with visuals of the plans for the new non-combustible furniture. We were also able to review proposals for the set-up & raised provision for disabled supporters to be factored into these.”

“Another aspect reviewed, was around the visual aesthetic to keep with the spirit of our fan bar, with the look & feel, being in line with the views of our members & fans alike, as so many have worked hard to achieve this over recent years since its set up”

“Samples of the graphics were reviewed & the MKDSA has asked that input is sought from supporters as to how this could be best put to use in the bar areas”

“An initial plan has now been agreed, which the club will now engage the local authority on, to seek their approval, so that these plans can move forward as soon as this has been received”

“We would like to put on record our thanks to the Chairman & members of the board & staff, for meeting with us review plans & have asked for regular updates so supporters are kept up to date with developments as these progress”

“We will of course keep supporters updated on developments as we continue to work closely with the club & advocate on behalf of our members & fans alike, through this process.”

“Whilst the current situation has been frustrating for everyone, we continue to work with the club & Supporters Board, & are determined to make sure that these setbacks are resolved in as timely, safe, practical a way as possible”

Aiden Gray – MKDSA Chairman
