When the Tories at the Town Hall in Peterborough, introduced their “fancy” Christmas Tree, which cost £40,000, it ended up being listed by the BBC as one of the most “hopeless” trees in the country!
- The decision to spend local taxpayers money on the Tree EVEN made the national newspapers!
And now it’s been sold!
So, from now on, if you “were” a fan of the silver tree you will need to pop along to the Wisbech Town Council events.
You see, because the tree was so lovely, no other Councils wanted it!
But, the Tories in Peterborough were lucky. Their Tory colleagues in Wisbech held “discussions” with them, and agreed to take the tree off their hands.
And the amount they paid? Well, despite the tree costing £40,000 in the first instance, Wisbech Town Council managed to agree a fee of £0 with PCC!
The Wisbech Tories even went to the local media to boast about their coup!!
Two other things …
- One local resident of Wisbech, has already registered their dissatisfaction with the news.
- Did anyone ever find out as to which company actually flogged this silly looking tree to Peterborough City Council and whether the company owner is a mate of one of the Conservative councillors?
