Purchase of Play Equipment for the Recreation Ground.
Mrs Glasse informed the meeting of the background. The late David Ellis had set up a trust fund specifically for a 10-18 year old play area. The Recreation Ground had agreed to spend some, although not all of the money, on 4 items of equipment for this specific purpose.
They had obtained 3 quotes for the equipment and had decided on purchasing from Action Play and Leisure. The cost of the equipment is £28k, however a further 2.5% discount will be given if 50% is paid upfront. The installation date is likely to be at the end of November and installed before Christmas.
The Recreation Ground request that the Parish Council purchase the equipment on their behalf and they will give a £24k donation.
The Council voted on the request and unanimously agreed to purchase the equipment.
Next Meetings: Planning, if required, and full Parish Council meeting on Monday 26th November 2018.
The Chair closed the meeting at 8.10 pm.
