Hi. Number 3 (owned by the Council) pathway light by the pathway and green running at the back of the houses on Balmoral Road. Light has been out for sometime. Now making path and area very dark. We had a break in to our shed on 14th and 3 bikes stolen during the night. May I also suggest some form of protection around bulb area. I have seen kids throwing stones up trying to smash the light. This maybe why the light is often not working? Many thanks.

  • Light still not fixed (Jan 2019). I won’t walk down here now as I have a pushchair and two small children. Far too dangerous. Please fix!
