Parish councillors were keen to support this idea and Coun Steven Bridgett said that it should be possible as there are electrical connections which were installed when the bridge was refurbished.

The news came as part of an update at last week’s parish-council meeting from two members of the committee, who said that the financial situation was ‘looking healthy for 2017’.

Coun Jeff Reynalds said: “I’m very impressed with everything that’s gone on. The parade last year was great and the church was packed out.”
