The initiative was originally suggested by Stithians W. I. who hosted the initial public meeting and covered the costs thereof.
At that meeting a small ad hoc committee was formed to drive the initiative forward.
Most of those on the committee have involvement in other organisations within the village, but do not necessarily represent those organisations on this committee.
The initial lead was taken by Yvonne Toms, who was then President of Stithians W. I. and former General Secretary of Stithians Show.
We have worked in conjunction with F.L.E.E.T. (Front Line Emergency Equipment Trust) an established Cornish Charity who source and install the equipment.
