I attended one of the public consultations at Weymouth Library concerning the seafront lights.

During the discussions I pointed out that if they installed fairy lights using LCD bulbs, they have a life of around fifteen years and use little electricity- very cheap to run and maintain.

However, the people who are responsible for the new lights said there wasn’t sufficient money to install the fairy lights all along the seafront, so I asked why could they not spend the money on just a section of them, and then continue with more sections every year?

I was told that there wouldn’t be any money in future years. How on earth can they claim that?
