WEE figures revealed

With the departure of the Smalltown Culture and Arts Manager (SCAM) it has been left to a member of staff with less massage experience to produce the latest report for the Smalltown and Dullbridge Town Council White Elephant Enclosure Mismanagement Committee meeting.

For the first time in the history of the WEE residents now have access to actual figures relating to user numbers, rather than a carefully spun word salad.

The figures show that, in January, 60 people used the facilties as part of one of four regular user groups. Hardly the “long list of users of the facility” as mentioned by the SCAM in her final address to the Mismanagement Committee.

However, it should be remembered that in SCAM-speak that would translate to “a wide and varied number of groups“. Assuming that these are weekly groups then, under the SCAM’s seasonally adjusted figures system, this would have further translated to ‘240 users’, although readers are reminded that the SCAM’s oft-mentioned ‘theatre season‘ is an undefined period of time so no reliance can be placed on any prior SCAM manipulated data.

January income from the group users brought a grand total of £655 into the WEE coffers.

The Smalltown and Dullbridge Pantomime group hired the WEE at the end of Dullbridge for four performances which saw 714 people turn up to endure an hour of sitting on uncomfortable seats. This added a further estimated £2700 in hire chargesvto the pot. Ticket income from the event went straight to the group as they’d hired the venue.

If January’s income is repeated for another 11 months, this would mean the WEE would have an income of circa £40,000 for the year, which falls short of the SCAM’s plucked out of thin air estimated income of £68,000.
