No lights switch on in Cheltenham

Borough Council say they can't afford it

Cheltenham won't have a Christmas lights switch on this year due to lack of funds.

The Borough Council say last year it cost them £33,000 to stage the event and there's simply no spare cash to run it this year.

That doesn't even include time councillors spend on planning and orgainsing.
