Election Countdown 7 – £9,000 Christmas

Pocklington Town Council spend £9,000 for “Christmas Tree and lights”. How is this spent?

My estimates

  • £1,500 – Installing and removing lights – It takes three men two half days.
  • £500 – Electric
  • £500 – Tree

Where is the £39,000?

What about the remaining £6,500? This makes £39,000 for the past six years!

No Tender

I am informed that this has been going on for many years and it has not been put out to tender.

Freedom of Information Request

Under the FOI Act I have requested from PTC for each of the past six years:

  • All invoices in relation to the Christmas Tree and lights
  • All tenders/quotations in relation to the Christmas Tree and lights
