War on Waste roadshow stops at Ipswich and Peterborough

July 06, 2014 10:11 AM

Following yesterday morning's visit to Harlow, the War on Waste roadshow called in at Ipswich and Peterborough as Saturday moved along. In Ipswich we pitched up outside the council offices to draw attention to unnecessary spending such as Suffolk Council’s chief executive splashing out £1,500 for a photograph portfolio. We received a great reaction, running out of leaflets swiftly in the weekend rush on the high street. One 17 year old boy working on a greengrocer's stall in the local market was surprised to find that, despite only working a Saturday job and therefore not paying income tax, he was a taxpayer as he paid fuel duty and road tax.

We then made our way to Peterborough where we set up a stand in the market square between the beautiful cathedral and the Guildhall.
