  • Lighting – have you considered your neighbours?

    When adding lights to your home, whether permanent or temporary, please look at how it may affect your neighbours.   This can mean across the canal,  across the road and on either side.   Christmas lights look great, but not all year around and not if they are blinking into somebodies bedroom.    Please be considerate.
