Cost was not all covered

First published in Letters

FURTHER to the recent correspondence regarding the cost of Meals on Wheels, it was evident that the existing charge of £3.10 per meal did not cover the actual cost of providing the meal.

The revised charge of £4.34 per meal will cover the cost of producing the meal and, more importantly, ensures that the service can continue to be offered to customers.

This decision was taken against a background of the council – along with other local authorities - having to make substantial savings in its budget. We are on course to deliver those savings with only minimal disruption to some services provided to the public.
