A question from Michael Dixon to the Leader of the Council tonight at the Kiln Road Full Council meeting.
Hadleigh Community Group has just held its fourth successful Annual Summer Fayre attracting thousands of visitors with a full roster of entertainment. They are to be congratulated for providing this at no cost to the taxpayer, asking only for a voluntary donation of £1-2 entry. The event also returned a profit to be invested back into the Hadleigh Community.
Is it correct that the council is charging £25 for a family with two children, and £32 for those with three to its Fireworks event?
When first announced, this event was allocated between £17-£25k of money paid for out of residents pockets through their council tax. Can the leader confirm that to then charge an entrance fee is effectively taking money from residents a second time, especially as it would appear Pinnacle are fronting sponsorship for the event?
