Lights a waste
9:40pm Monday 18th February 2013 in Letters
I NOTICED tucked away on page 19 of the Malvern Gazette in News in Brief that Upton Town Council have increased the precept by two per cent – despite the Government’s call for no increase.
I am on a fixed income and any increase is very hard to cope with. What really annoys me is that the same council gave away £25,000 to the Tourism and Trade Association to replace existing Christmas lights and erect a Christmas tree that cost £3070.
What a waste! If this had not been done, there would have been no need for any increase at all.
