You may have noticed that Blantyre has THIRD street with a set of festive lights this year, a first for this town.
Thanks to the efforts of Carrigans on Broompark Road, further festive lighting features have been bought and installed along Broompark Road outside their business and opposite High Blantyre Primary School. They look absolutely fantastic! Just what these dark mornings and nights need!
You may be surprised to know that any business can have festive street lighting like this put up on poles outside their premises subject to application to the council AND if they’re willing to pay for the lights being bought and stored. Earlier this year we facilitated a quote on behalf of Carrigans, seeking costs and advice from the council although ultimately it was Carrigans who made it happen! If any Blantyre business would like to do this next year and illuminate other areas of the town, please get in touch with us in Summer and we’ll put you in contact with the relevant authorities.
