So it’s another gold for Hunstanton, Anglia in Bloom – well done.
But doesn’t this raise the question, that if for the last three or more years Hunstanton has won the gold for their gardens and displays around the town, then surely questions need to asked about the validity of their application for a Lottery grant for the rejuvenation of the gardens?
We all know that the butterfly benches need a new roof and the Mercy Grey shelter, which in my own eyes would be better suited to be moved into the area of the lighthouse. But £800,000 for rejuvenation of the gardens?
If they are good enough to win for the last three or so years, what actually needs doing to them? Again, who actually asks the questions, and who will be brave enough to provide a breakdown of where the funds will be spent? I will not be surprised if and when the money turns up, that it is swallowed up by Lynn, as is all the money from Hunstanton’s taxpayers and car parks, parking fines, etc.
If the town got the revenues from the car parks for just one year, that would be £600,000 plus, not including fines.
I have always said that Hunstanton is a cash cow for the borough, but is often forgotten, so approach your councillors, and ask the question: “Where is the money going?”
Just look at the rejuvenation of the cliff top toilet block. Money well spent?
