Lights lift spirits

I WAS delighted to read we are having lights this Christmas after all.

There is too much doom and gloom around, especially during the dark days of winter.

For the short time we will have them, a lot of spirits will be lifted and to see small children’s faces light up is a tonic.

For the future I don’t think shops should give more, but I would like to see a central office that would collect either cash or cheques from residents who would be sure their donations will be used for the street lights over the Christmas period.
