Everything takes time and money to upkeep. Here is the official statement updating you on what we’ve been doing...and future plans:
GCCA has been running the Christmas lights for 2 years and the focus has once again been on ensuring that the lights are safe and compliant with the current regulations. This year we managed:-
We have also introduced a couple of new lights including a programmable ‘LED net’ and Bluetooth controlled LED Christmas tree lights as well as a number of digital timers to replace the inaccurate mechanical types.
The emphasis for the coming year will be to continue to repair and re-introduce existing rope lights where they can be brought up to the prevailing electrical safety regulations. .
We have some exciting long term plans to introduce state of the art interactive lighting effects, which will require careful planning and take some time to bring to fruition!!
Lastly, we were very short of helpers this year, however, thanks go out to those that helped repair/install the Christmas lights, and to those who weren’t able to climb ladders and help with the ‘rigging’ but who never-the-less gave plenty of moral support to the other members of the team.
If you want to get involved with the lights, or if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the GCCA
