Freda the cleaner takes the lid off the Town Hall in this lively and informative cartoon. It gives basic information about the services provided by a local authority and humorously illustrates what life would be like without them. As Freda’s vacuum cleaner transforms itself into a ‘hoovercopter’ and flies over the city, she explains the structure of the local authority and the relationship between voter, council and central government. She also confronts the issue of privatisation, and shows some of the effects of this on local services. The aim of the film is to provoke discussion and encourage involvement in local democracy.
