John Balcombe Brings Light to Life !

A broken street lamp in the Royal British Legion Village has now been fixed thanks to prompt action by John Balcombe.

The lamp had been broken for months, causing concern for retired residents of nearby Charles Busby House and Duchess of Kent Court.

John said,
"Hundreds of residents of RBL Village are elderly or disabled. Poor lighting results in people falling over and injuring themselves and dark corners increase the likelihood of crime and vandalism. I am pleased I was able to help and speed things along."

Local residents contacted John Balcombe after calls to EDF Energy and Housing 21 were not followed-up. Within days an engineer had visited the site and lamp was repaired.
"We are all very grateful to John for his prompt action - no-one else seemed willing or able to help."
-Mrs L of Charles Busby Court

If you know of any other broken street lamps, or would like to report dumped rubbish, graffiti, over-growing hedgerows, abandoned cars or uneven pathways - contact your local Conservative Action Team.

Thank you Cllr Balcombe. This light has not been on for 6 months. My husband has already had a fall and hurt his leg due to bad light. You work really hard for us and we are grateful for your efforts. Obliged.
