Hibs chief executive Leeann Dempster today urged supporters to make their views known through an official club survey after three nights of meetings with fans.

The Easter Road board are keen to hear thoughts and opinions and are creating a survey to gauge public feeling on how the club should be run. Dempster and directors have spent the last three nights meeting around 200 fans face to face at the stadium and will now launch an online platform for people to register their views.

Supporters Direct Scotland are currently running their own survey on Hibs’ future.

Dempster is advising supporters to use that survey and Hibs’ official one to ensure the board receive as many viewpoints as possible before changes can be made.

“The meetings were well attended, lively, and productive with the vast majority of those attending keen to engage in a process that they understand will help shape the future direction of the club,” said Dempster.

“Some good points were strongly made, and some interesting ideas emerged. We will take these on board as we create a survey we hope as many supporters as possible will participate in – through the website and through a variety of other means to ensure we get the widest cross section of feedback possible.

“The survey will be designed to build upon the discussions we have had in the meetings. I also continue to meet supporters on a one-to-one basis, and we continue to meet with supporter groups.

“We will be asking Supporters Direct to share the information, the more information we have the better as we plan a way ahead, the right way for our club that will reunite supporters and engage with the wider community.”
