With the New Year not far away it is time to ask people if they would like to sponsor/continue to sponsor the church floodlights that are on every evening. The current floodlights were installed and ran on Christmas Eve 1999 for the first time. We have had some problems over the years, but the lights are now 19 years old. Some may have noticed that one of the lights which lights the west end of the tower is missing as it was found smashed. Needless to say, the same type of light is no longer available.
We have therefore decided to replace all the floodlights with LED systems and the contractor who installed all the LED lighting in church is going to do this. One of the benefits of doing this is that all the lamps will give the same colourand this should not change whereas the metal halide lamps in the current fixtures become more yellow and less bright as they age.
This year we are continuing our sponsorship programme for the lights. It is still £15 per weekand you may want to sponsor in memory of people, events, etc. You may select as many weeks as you wish. I ideally like cheques made out to ‘St Ippolyts Church’ so that I can keep accurate track of payments. If you would like to sponsor as ‘anonymous’ then that is fine too.
By the time you see this the sign-up board will be at the back of the church along with a calendar showing the week numbers highlighted. If you have any queries, please let me know.
