  • Council did acknowledge direct request - BUT - NO ACTION YET, and no communication on WHEN - if they can afford it. It may be that Western Power will have to pay as they removed the lamp when their cable exploded under the road nearby. The Gymnastics club has restarted under Virus Restricted conditions. In November to March their entrance will be DANGEROUS after lighting up time.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • Still No action and no sign of the light being replaced. Gym Club now in action again with restricted safe numbers under pandemic rules. This lamp is definitely needed as there is a very dark patch just at the entrance. Perhaps funds have run out?
