Oldham Council wastes £23,000 on fireworks

With the impending cuts to council services and the 5% increase in council tax soon to be announced in the councils 2024/2025 budget we can report Labour Oldham council wasted £23,000 on fireworks in November 2023 while neighbouring councils decided against the expense. Next on the Oldham Council waste of money roundabout will be the Illuminate festival later this month which amongst other expenses costs the Oldham public £10,000 every year to project images onto the old town hall for just one evening. £10,000 is the same amount Labour Oldham council plan on cutting from an emergency contraception and formula milk project in their latest budget.
