  • Sorry for the delay in getting back to you and also the inconvenience this is causing. SSE own the electrical service and also the wooden pole. Sadly they now have a policy where they aren't attaching our lanterns to these wooden poles, we have been trying to work a solution which has been frustrating but as SSE own the service and post we have to work around them. We are hoping we can get SSE to re attach a unit as we have noticed recently they have started to fit them again at various other sites in the county. Sorry it has taken so long , I am hoping we can get SSE to allow us a solution to rectify this. Kind Regards Chris Marks - electrical officer
