Lack of lights
PUBLISHED: 11:39 22 December 2011
I would like to comment on the lack of Christmas lights in Exmouth.
The council threw their dolly out of the pram because of funding over the lights. Well, maybe they should have put a little back from the The Strand project?
No, they thought shop owners should contribute, but why should they? They pay enough in business rates.
I have just come back from a very run down part of Manchester, where a lot of the shops are empty, but there were a few festive lights.
It was the same when I went to Nottingham, where, again, I visited a run down area, but festive lights were to be seen.
Shame on Exmouth. What a disappointment. I will be interested in looking at the budget books.
