The lighting at the Market Cross has been replaced by the Parish Council. Hopefully you will have noticed the new perimeter lights as the evenings draw in, which replaced the previous rope light which had started to deteriorate. In addition, the floodlights which illuminate the underside of the Market Cross roof have been changed.
Environmentally friendly, low-energy LED lights have been selected to reduce running costs and heat generated whilst reducing the village’s carbon footprint. The existing floodlights consumed 400W between them whereas the new LED floodlights consume a total of just 20W – a 95% saving. The total consumption for the Market Cross is now only 100W and the products selected were chosen for their quality and longevity meaning that they should operate for many years without the need for maintenance or repair.
The lighting operates from dusk until 11pm. If you are running an event at the Market Cross during the winter months and would like the lights to be switched on earlier, this can be arranged with prior notice. Don’t forget that use of the Market Cross can be booked by village groups and individuals and you can book online.
There are more photographs of the new lighting in the Village Gallery.
