  1. Harrogate Council’s donation 110k to cycling (our money ) maybe you should ask them for the money you need .!
    Thay take it from us then give it away without consulting.
    Every new house build will pay tax to our Council do we see any of it NO
    Were is the cash going !
    There is so much we can’t afford apparently!!!!

  2. Whilst people may enjoy the carnival it’s a waste of public money. There are people being denied social care. Families of disabled children being denied help. Children not having food. Adults not having food. Dies this council have a moral compass NO
