It comes at a cost and as well as the BID company, thanks are due to Hitchin Councillors, Hitchin Property Trust, the
Arcade company and Hammersmatch. Even with all this support we still need to raise £10,000 to maintain the attractiveness of Hitchin.
What???? £10,000 just to run some old lights over December? £10,000 is a heckuva lot of dosh--about £4000 more than I make in a year. There are so many homeless and vulnerable and poor people in the area. Do they know what £10,000 could do for them?
No matter how I try--I can’t justify the cost. Particularly with all the freezing weather we’ve been having there will be homeless people frozen to death soon. It doesn’t bear thinking about.
