Sadly, the power supply to the Christmas lights at Jubilee Gardens, at the clock roundabout in #highbridge, might have been subject to vandalism.

The very tough armoured cable that feeds the lights was damaged at about chest height, as shown in the photographs. It looks as though the cable might have been repeatedly hit with a sharp implement.

This cable carries 240v, so it has been repaired and covered in sturdy ducting.

Unlike the incidents of vandalism in #burnhamonsea, this damage could not be repaired for free by the lights contractor. The damage was made to the power infrastructure and required us to instruct and pay for an electrician.

Thankfully, it is now fixed and we are now asking people to please keep an eye on the lights to help us protect them for our residents.
