Christmas lighting

Published: 23 November 2018

Our exciting new Christmas lighting scheme in the Broadway, High Road and Old Station Road was installed on Wednesday evening.  The new motifs and wrapped columns looked lovely and we were delighted to receive compliments from residents.


Unfortunately the contractors had made one glaring error – we had specifically asked for non-flickering lights to avoid any adverse impact on those people with photosensitive epilepsy. This condition affects 1 in a 100 of the population.


On discovering this mistake on Thursday we immediately contacted Blachere Illuminations who apologised for their oversight.   This problem had to be remedied and so last evening the motifs were taken down by the installers and returned to their workshop for modification.  They have promised to have them re-installed next week in time for the Christmas events.
