Visitors to Luton town centre hungry for a bite to eat can enjoy Jimmy’s World Grill with a 25 per cent discount this Christmas – but only if they are a council employee.
The voucher is featured in the ‘Christmas in Luton 2013’ advertising brochure produced by the council and distributed across Herts, Beds and Bucks.
The other offers appear to be for everyone, but on the Jimmy’s voucher it says: “Please present your Luton Council employee payslip”, which a council spokesman said was at the request of the business.
A Luton Borough council spokesman said: “The brochure’s aim is to promote to the public what is happening in Luton during the run up to Christmas, particularly events such as Lighting Up Luton.”
Lighting Up Luton took place on Saturday, and the spokesman said the brochure was available from some town centre stores on Friday, with the “main distribution at the light switch-on event on Saturday.”
Selling of adverts and writing the brochure was done by council employees and took “around 17 hours”. Costs were fully covered by sponsorship advertising and design and printing was via Novotex.
