BANES Financial Pressures.
Posted on: 24th April 2018

At the Annual Parish Meeting we were given a comprehensive presentation by BANES Councillor Charles Gerrish of the Council’s financial position and of the pressures that it faces. The most startling fact was that eighty percent of the council’s revenue is spent on adult and children’s ‘social care’. Funding for schools comes under a separate arrangement in which government money is passed straight onto the schools. The obvious conclusion is that all other expenditure, pot holes, libraries and so on must come from the 20 percent, or £22m remaining. Despite this pressure, the council has to reduce expenditure by £58m by 2020. Hence the severe pressure on expenditure.

Bath Rotary Club – Tommy Appeal

Bath Rotary club has proposed to BANES council that there should be at least one “Tommy” installed in Bath to mark the centenary of the end of WW1 and the council have agreed.  In order that the cost of this exercise does not detract from our other charitable donations they have produced a mydonate page specifically to raise the cost of Tommies. The Tommies are 6ft silhouettes of a WW1 soldier which are being installed all around the country. All the proceeds from the sale of these goes to Military charities such as Help for Heroes. This video on youtube gives a fuller story https://youtu.be/g50viJ3J94A The mydonate page is at https://mydonate.bt.com/events/tommie/475826
