Two contractors had installed their equipment temporarily, and although the official cost was not yet known, it would probably be between £250 and £300 (about £4,000 today).
A vote was taken on what seemed to be the better equipment. There were more votes for the second installation. Discussion ensued on whether it was considered necessary, and the meeting voted that the matter be raised at the next PCC meeting.
