Financial Report & Associated Matters

To receive the reports of the RFO and Deputy Town Clerk.


Members received and considered the joint written report of the Deputy Town Clerk and Responsible Financial Officer (RFO).


Members were pleased to hear from the RFO that the income and expenditure statements had been brought as up to date as possible and gave an accurate position of the current budget spending.


Members noted the Corn Exchange theatre projection agreement and discussed the disposal of the Hall’s former tiered seating platform. Members felt it a shame to scrap this and agreed to delegate to Officers to offer this for sale.


Members discussed the request received for one of the surplus children Christmas competition winning lights. They agreed that this should be granted at no cost to the requestee providing the light successfully passes a Portable Appliance Test (PAT).
