Yooo thanks for this - just a heads up that this almost certainly doesn’t need to be a purchase proposal as it’s a basic safety item replacing some that have broken.

Additionally I’d probably get 3 or 4 as they are useful about the space and it’ll mean the shipping cost goes a bit further :slight_smile:

I guess @Fnhalluk as treasurer would just need to thumbs up the expense?

+1 if it needs one

Ello, I’d also agree we want a fair handful of them since shipping is the main expense here and they’re useful.

As to whether a purchase proposal is needed, it’s a grey area as part of the new system was to make our spending more transparent to everyone, and also make it easier for future members to see what was bought to make reordering the same bits n bobs easier.

Also means if someone has a load sat at home for some reason they’re happy to donate then they have the opportunity.

Regardless of all that, here’s my +1 support.
