Success! After months of asking Kettering Borough Council has agreed to install a light in this pitch black alleyway between Haynes Road and Hodge Way. The council call this a "light column" - to you and I it's a lamppost though!
Because residents' safety is important to me I am contributing almost my entire annual ward fund to help get this light installed. It really will make this area much safer for the residents living nearby - and I thank them for bringing this issue to my attention.
