Last year the Parish Council allocated funds for a defibrillator of £2000 in financial year 2015/16. At this time the council persuaded KIER to install power for the unit FOC in the new hall.
See the references below:
Item 15 of Parish Council Meeting 2nd March 2015
Which stipulates £1600 +VAT to purchase the defibrillator.
Item 4 of Parish Council Meeting 13 April 2015
This item outlines that the Council had donations of:
- £240 from CU:eve
- £50 from Coop
- £100 from Bovis/Linden
This means the funding was in place of up to £2390.
Now in financial year 2016/17 URPC have allocated £3000 at the Parish Council meeting on the 6th June 2016 and quoted a donation figure much less than £390. My only question is why is there a 15 month delay when the decision to do allocate one was paid in March 2015 and what has happened to the shortfall in donations?
As an aside its most interesting viewing the minutes as it outlines all income and spending whereas todays minutes are somewhat lacking.
Lets hope the unit is installed within the next few days, as we the older generation need the reassurance that we may be bump started to live a little longer. 🙂
