Lighting Equipment For Sale
Now that the new lighting system has been successfully installed, the LED floodlights that were used as a temporary measure in St Michael's are now available for sale. They have been cleaned and tested for electrical safety and they would make an ideal work, or security light either in or out of doors and they have a much lower running temperature and power consumption than the tungsten halogen equivalents. Prices are 40 GPB for a 30 watt unit and 50 GBP for a 50 watt unit.

Pleas contact the Parish Office to place an order. Payment by cash or cheque made payable to St Michael's Parochial Church Council. All monies received will be treated as donations towards the cost of the new lighting system and as such could be gift aided. Disposal of the previous lighting equipment is now being considered. If members of the congregation know of specific persons or organisations who might be interested, please contact Bob May on 01727,853695.
