VICTORIA STREET is lit up this Christmas after Alderney Electricity, the States and the Chamber of Commerce stepped in to buy some desperately needed new illuminations.
The Chamber of Commerce was determined to raise the funds and buy new lights this year after the old ones – some 30 years old – became too unsafe to be put to use again. The new LED lights will be long-lasting and cheaper to run than the old models.
The lights just under £6,000. AEL paid £3,000, the States contributed £1,900 and Chamber donated £1,000.
Katherine Kissick said the lights would be added to in future years.
It is hoped that the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce will contribute some of its lights next year so that Braye Street and further sections of St Anne’s can also be lit up at Christmas.
