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.
