I've had a good idea. It seems that if a building is a registered place of worship it is exempt from Council Tax. It might surprise alot of people to know that in the Bradford area there are around ten thousand registered Mosques. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that most of these so called mosques are in fact ordinary houses on the fiddle. In order for the the place of worship to be so deemed there must be a congregation (of at least five regular attendees.) And a timetable of worship schedules which must be submitted along with the application. I have decided to become a pagan (specifically an Odinist. I have joined the odinist fellowship.) I am also going to attempt to use my basement as a pagen temple where regular worship (winter and summer solstice regular as anything) will be held. The worship will involve sacrificing a little mead before drinking the rest in the name of Odin, Thor or whomever. This religion is the traditional religion of Anglo Saxon England and parts of Eastern Scotland. It will be interesting to see how my application is recieved by the authorities. I will say that this is not just me having a rant. I have done alot of research into Anglo Saxon Traditions as this is a hobby of mine. I have also looked into the rules and guidelines determining the validation of registered religious buildings. I really think I mght be able to pull this one off. Anybody interested in becoming a pagen pm me. The strength of my application will be bolstered greatly by the size of the congregation. Some of the information required is obtainable from the local registry office should anyone wish to check this out for themselves. An application requires two form 76s. I will keep you posted with my progress.
