      young people researching and creating designs around the theme and will

      have been no applications to the project funds this financial year. Funding of
      £3,060 (SSHF) was agreed towards „Capital Creations‟ – a similar project with
      young people culminating in a performance in the Millennium Dome.

10.   Officer recommendation: This application is for activity additional to that covered

      budget seem excessive and the shortfall of expenditure minus income shown in the
      budget is incorrect.

      up to £5,000 is recommended payable on receipt of report and accounts after the
