Spokesman Martin Whittaker said: “Through savings in electricity costs, the strings would eventually pay for themselves as well as being better for the environment.”

The committee would like to send a big thank you to all who sponsored a bulb as part of the fund raising event in which £143.22 was raised. Pictured on the stall are Graham Hackney and Martin.
