Un­wanted cards for coun­cil­lor

Western Daily Press (Saturday) - - News -

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.
