Thanks for that Kev. One of them was evidently a very good job. I shall keep an eye on it...

I drove past the green around 8pm last night and they were all lit - they must be on timers and the odd one has a faulty timer maybe?
The grass isn't necessarily any greener on the other side
...sometimes it's just the flowers are in different places.

Could well be a faulty timer, they must be good quality batteries :-)

That mention of high winds reminds me of when we had gales here before Christmas. Some people had those life-size inflatable Santas and Snowmen outside their front doors and they had to deflate them to prevent them blowing away. It was a depressing sight the following day!

(I typed the above post too fast and had to correct it - the original referred to `life-size inflatable Satans! :smile: )

Thanks Pete. The plot thickens.....
Later... The last 'Balloon' is either not working or has been removed.....

I note that Mr Stephenson's Xmas tree has bitten the dust and the last remaining small conical emitter on Skipton Road at Osborne Terrace has been removed.
I suspect this is the end of posts to this topic for the present!

I realised yesterday that the last survivor of the Xmas Lights is the Star of Bethlehem, reindeer and sleigh hanging over Wellhouse Street as a DIY decoration.

Not lit now and I expect them to vanish soon.

They'll go like all the others eventually Cathy. What they need is a round tuit.
