Three Pendle people have scooped a share of £1,000 off their council tax bill by switching to e-billing.

More than 1,000 people switched to receive their bill by e-mail using the Council’s online Council Tax service which was launched in 2016.

Everyone who signed up to e-billing by the end of April was entered into the draw and three people were picked at random.

Naveed Rashid (pictured) from Colne has been awarded £500 off this year’s council tax bill.

He said: “I was surprised when I found out I’d won.

“I’m very supportive of the move by the Council to provide more services online so when I saw you could sign-up to receive your council tax bill by email, I immediately switched.”

Anton Dreyer from Kelbrook and Christina Wellard from Earby both received £250 off their council tax bills.

Anton said: “Doing things online is a way of life for me which is why I switched to e-billing.

“I’m very environmentally conscious and I’m pleased to see that the Council is doing what it can to reduce the amount of paper it uses.”

Christina added: “I’ve recently moved to Pendle for work.

“I signed up for e-billing when I was setting up my council tax account - it was so easy!”

Councillor Paul White, Leader of Pendle Council, said: “Thank you to everyone who has switched to e-billing.

“You’re helping us to save money, protect our services and it’s much better for the environment.

“Whenever you need to see or print a copy of your bill, simply log into your Council Tax online account where it’ll be stored safely.

“You can do this on your mobile, tablet or computer.”
