A local resident contact us about a faulty lamp in Burlington Rd. I popped round to have a look. They have replaced the traditional lamp post painted in the old Southport County Borough colours which a brand new one.
I paused to wonder whether in these cashed strapped times it could not have been repair. I have since been informed that a minor repair was needed and that would have required ladders which present a H&S challenge. I'm checking it out. Sounds daft to me.
