The following info has been assembled from reading through the published CC Minutes on this site plus some information published on the Trust’s web site.
This information has been compiled from minutes of the Community Council meetings up until February 2020 – Since that date I am not aware that any information on funding has been made by the trustCamy McGregor – 2nd March 2021
Listed by Club – AND – as requested chronologically at CC meetings – below giving reason for request where known.
I would surmise that this list is not an accurate reflection of actual expenditure as a) not all of the minutes appear to have been made available, found and/or published and b) some items ( e.g. Jenna Mora purchase) are only mentioned within the general content and not in the ‘Trust’ section – (normally at the end of the CC minutes) – grateful for any updates & happy to publish corrections etc.
Total indicated expenditure to date – £232,156.88 (Plus some unknowns)
