----- Original Message ----From: Chrissy Grant To: Steve Phelan Sent: Wednesday, October 13, 2010 6:30 PM Subject: Kinder Flowerdale Trust Fund Committee On behalf of the Flowerdale Kinder I would like to ask if the Trust account could help us out with a shortfall in funding. The Architects have installed partitions as a room divider, although these may appear suitable on plans they provide an obivious danger to our children due to their opening operation, this will allow a child to possibly injure their hands or such, as the fold out is a hinged movement not suitable. Our dilemna is we can pay for a change of doors at our cost, which after years of dilligence in fundraising we could cover the cost. Vbbra or Education Department will not come to the cost changes, so if we agree we will not have enough for the educational books and supplies needed. I would ask the Trust if they can at some point assist us with some funding to cover the much needed Kinder equipment, could you reply as soon as possible to us in as much as we need to inform the Builders if we can go ahead. Yours faithfully
