I don't know if this is in the right place or not but oh well! Has anyone noticed that the streetlights are well dimmer this year than normal? Our road is pitch black and every light is on. Have the council dimmed them to save a bit of cash???

The council really have. I read it the other day on Wirral Globe, that rather than turn them off completely like a lot of other local authorities, that they would instead be dimmed.

Whats that I hear? Oh, its the impending increase in street crime as a result...

no idea. they seem to be lazy around ours because they haven't bothered to fix the constantly on lampost on Colin Road that's been stuck like that for over 6 months.

When I reported a street light out last year they came and did it within 2 days! I was shocked!

However there is one round the corner that's been flickering like a strobe for the past month...

Summer you don't roast a squirrel. You peel it then grill it with some cheese on.. alternatively you can bake it in a cake. I'd advise to do it in a fruit cake... I call it a fruit and nutkin cake

The lights are on.... but they are a bit dim.

I'm not allowed to eat roast squirrel 'cos they might contain nuts.
