Complete indignation is spreading through the Really Bad Blog household ;-)
... remember I mentioned those 30% rises in some school let charges, which were approved by the Lib/Nat Administration yesterday?
Well, I've just spotted that the annual fee for an 'Allotment Rental' has gone up from £48 to £54 - that's a 12.5% increase ... but it gets worse!
The budget papers clearly state this increase will be applicable from 1st April 2009 - yet we received an invoice on the 22nd January 2009 requesting the new rate of £54 for Jan'09-Jan'10, which we promptly paid several weeks ago!
Official enquiries will be called for as soon as I next meet with the Chief Executive - heads will simply have to roll ;-))
