6. Green Leeds
Money is available from landfill tax and the Group can apply for funding. £5000 could be applied for to help with footpath work. Could use money for materials and outside contractors to do the work as well as just the Group. The Group will need to get 3 quotes for the work.
Costing for the 2003 Funday looked very good. The only problem for the future of the event is meeting the cost of tents, which the Group has not previously had to meet. The group will have to find an additional £1000 of funding for this. Agreed to approach C.I.T. with a request for funding at an early stage.
Mervyn and Joan agreed to attend next C.I.T. meetings.
It was agreed that planning for Funday should start at an earlier stage than this year so that grant applications can be dealt with at an early stage. The date for the next Funday was set as Saturday May 22nd 2004.
