Impossible to see where you’re going, e.g. trip up kerb. Gets dark by 5.00 p.m. so people still getting home. Feels unsafe to walk in blackness.

  • The fault was remedied for a night or two, but tonight it is off again. Is it just the timer or something else that needs attention? Please can it be mended in a reliable way as it is surely a waste of time and money to keep returning to the same issue.

  • For the third time in a few weeks, street light in middle of Rugby Rd is out. Grateful it was repaired for Christmas/ New Year, but the darkness is even deeper now that homes have no Christmas lights on. It is definitely hazardous to walk once daylight gone. Nobody wants to go into hospital from falls at this time of Covid!

  • The street light worked for one night and is out again. I accept Weston Power may have reduced workforce due to Covid, but you ask us to report when street lights not working at night, which has been done for a couple of months (since they were checked!). However, the light now works so erratically that I see no point in reporting it any more. Repair seems unable to provide reliable lighting, so we shall have to take our chances. Hopefully nobody sues if something tragic happens.
