Letter: Christmas Lights - City is still the poor relation

Ripon Lights Switch On. (1511205AM7)

The front page headline for the Ripon Gazette dated November 26 says ‘Lights Fantastic’.

This may be so for the market place but where are the lights for Marshall Way and Blossomgate and also the lights which say ‘Merry Christmas’ which we have had displayed on High Skellgate in previous years?

There is not a single Christmas light on these two roads. Where have they all gone?

You can’t tell me that they are all broken. There has been 11 months in which to mend them.

Every lamp post on Marshall Way and Blossomgate have an electric switch on them but no lights attached.

There never seems to be any problems with the lights provided for Harrogate and Knaresborough. They never seem to have any lost, missing or broken.

Ripon seems to be the poor relation in comparison.
