Spending Review Yorkshire -Top attractions remain free

Did you know these great days out are all wholly or partly funded by the public sector? (Local councils to be precise). Charging an entrance fee wouldn’t generate much revenue but might perhaps be used to save or secure some public sector jobs. How about the Banking sector funding attractions such as these on a non-profit making basis instead, as a good will gesture? That would save the public money too. What do you think?

About Me

My photo
I have always enjoyed problem solving for friends and family and as a teacher for the last 18 years this is part of what I do every day. During the last year I have been rediscovering a passion for writing and I have recently produced a short story and several reviews for my blog - Places to visit and eat/drink in Leeds, Yorkshire UK. I am also offering my services as a freelance writer.
