The Parish Council has been advised that the current amber street lights will no longer be manufactured after 2019 and manufacturers' stocks for replacements are very low. We will be considering this issue but meantime the faulty light outside no 26 Frog Lane is being replaced with a wide angle soft white LED lamp. This will give parishioners the opportunity to see what could be available in future. There are lots of variations in colour and brightness so please send us feedback on what you think about this particular replacement and any other concerns you have about our street lights.
LEDs are much more energy efficient so will cost a lot less to run. In addition they are guaranteed by the contractor for a year, then by the manufacturer for 10 years so maintenance costs will be much reduced.
