A Christmas of Goodwill - but if only we had a more generous Council

A Christmas of Goodwill among Leeds residents and visitors from Christkindelmarkt, Leeds - a tiny piece of Germany in the heart of the City Centre - but if only we had a more generous Council and parking charges after 1800 had not suddenly been introduced then the revenue from the attendance at Christlindelmarkt and many other events would be so much increased, much more than that received from a few extra parking charges ---
