Old Equipment To Be Sold Off

Former school site at Carn Thomas

Kitchen items and IT equipment left over from the former Carn Gwavel and Carn Thomas school sites and valued at over £700 will be sold off to islanders who tender for them.

Less valuable items could be given to good causes.

Amanda Martin told Tuesday’s Policy and Resources meeting that she was delighted to see that an inventory of assets from the sites had been made as in the not so distant past some surplus school items had been dumped. The sale will be part of the remodeling of the former primary base as a Lifelong Learning and Wellbeing Centre.

Members backed the ongoing work to secure a £487,850 Big Lottery grant to pay for the refurbishment of the former Carn Gwaval site.

The Council has already committed £53,000 and additional cash for the £581,000 scheme is being sought from the Local Action Group.

David Pearson said the staff had worked very hard on the plans and he supported it.

Around £25,000 in architect and professional fees has been spent so far but some costs incurred will be covered by the Lottery grant if the Council gets it.

Councillor Richard McCarthy pointed out that whole project stands or falls by their decision, which should be made in September.
