Readers are wanting to have a gurn about the new LED lights in the Fishertown:
"Just wondering if either you have seen, or if other people have commented about the new (past couple of days) LED upgrades to the Victorian style street lights in the Fishertown. To me they appear on the green/blue/cold end of the white spectrum & make Fishertown look like a morgue, dismal, unwelcoming & unfriendly to come home to in an evening. H.C. having spent a fortune on Victorian style lights in keeping with the cosy ambience of the conservation area, have now undone it all!! Do residents of Fishertown have a say in this as we have to live with it every night. Does H.C. realise that lighting colour can affect moods?"
And from another gurnite: "For over a week now a van with lift/hoist has been going around the fishertown changing all the lightbulbs in the street lights, apparently in an effort to cut electricity consumption, old (working) bulbs are just being binned. The new bulbs give off a very bright white light compared to the yellow light of the old bulbs that was more in keeping with the expensive fake Victorian lights that we have. I would have thought a more cost effective measure would have been to replace the old bulbs as and when they failed?"
