SHOPPERS in Felixstowe will this weekend be given the chance to sign up for the crusade to keep down council tax in Suffolk.

Members of the PACTS (People Against Council Tax in Suffolk) will be taking to the streets of the town to build support for the campaign calling for the tax to be capped.

More than 3,000 people from across Suffolk have already signed their petition calling for no more increases.

Now they are linking up with our campaign to Cap the Tax if there's any attempt to increase it by more than inflation next year.

They will be on the pedestrianised section of Hamilton Road between 11am and 2pm tomorrow gathering signatures – and should be unmissable for weekend shoppers.

Look out for their Evening Star Cap the Tax posters if you want to add your name to the growing calls for a fairer deal next year.

"We've been successful in getting signatures in other towns across Suffolk – I'm sure we will get a good reception in Felixstowe as well," said PACTS organiser Reg Hartles.

The Star has now received more than 300 coupons back from readers suggesting what they would like to be cut and which council services should see more expansion.

Next week we will be publishing our own petition forms giving every one of our readers who wants to see council tax capped the chance to have their voice heard.
