20/07/12.....Thame school children won't get their jubilee mugs -
A Thame Councillor has expressed her disappointment that a request for funding towards jubilee mugs for all Thame's school children, has been turned down.
Cllr Mary Stiles told fellow town councillors at Tuesday's council meeting: "This is an historic occasion and the people who raised £1007 from the Jubilee quiz are very disappointed that the council could not find match funding for the mugs."
At a previous meeting of the Culture, Leisure and Recreation Committee (CLR) on July 10, it had been suggested that the request for match funding had been received too late and that it should have been considered as part of the Council's grant award scheme, the deadline of which had passed.
A suggestion was made that the £1007 raised at the quiz should be donated to the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.
