Xmas Lights Fiasco

St Neots News and Crier - 12/08/2010 digital edition

Having bought a whole load of Christmas lights, the Town Council hasn't been able to erect them across the High Street. This is due both the on-going investigation by the HSE and the inability of the Town Council to release the report into this accident.

The reason why landlords aren't willing to allow their buildings to be used is the Town Council will not answer the basic question. As a lover of secrecy the Town Council has kept secret the report into the incident a few Christmases ago. Cllr Thorpe makes the excuse that buildings are old. This is just a silly excuse. Many other Towns use old buildings to hang Christmas decorations across the street. Tring is a prime example.

My view is simple. Instead of using secrecy to hide the report, the Town Council should publish this report. The longer this goes on and remains unresolved the less likely these decorations will be used. Instead the Town Council has to spend more money to resolve this problem.
