Unwanted cards for councillor
THE leader of Somerset County Council will be getting a lot of Christmas cards this year - but not for the reason he would have hoped.
Members of the campaign group Stop Somerset Cuts will be sending large numbers of Christmas cards to Councillor David Fothergill, pictured, to lobby against further cuts to public services.
The group has designed the cards themselves, highlighting services which they feel have been unfairly cut or are at threat from future savings proposals.
Mr Fothergill expressed sympathy with the campaigners but said the authority had to deliver a balanced budget.
Stop Somerset Cuts will be sending cards to Mr Fothergill between December 10 and 14.
