For many months I’ve noticed this tree at the north end of Fulham Palace Road, near the flyover. It’s been lit up like this since last Christmas. Here is the tree as it is during the day. You need to look very closely to see the lights. Here’s an image of the tree at night. It’s very nice but how much does it cost to have the lights on all day, every day?
Hammersmith & Fulham Council loves to tell us how it’s saving money. It cuts community centres and youth clubs but is quite happy to pour money down the drain by illuminating this tree. It’s very pretty but it’s a waste of money. I may have to submit a Freedom of Information request to find out exactly how much money has been spent on lighting up this tree.
