Sonning Bridge Pathway Safety Lighting
Following a formal invitation from Sonning Parish Council, the Rt. Hon’ Theresa May MP Home Secretary came to Sonning on November 23rd at 1.30pm to undertake the official ‘switch-on’ of the Parish Council’s Sonning Bridge Pathway Safety Lighting.
Financial donors to the project were also formally invited, together with the Mayoress of Wokingham Borough, Borough Councillors, Parish Council contractors G.D.Contracting Ltd’s Graham Dawson, Scottish and Southern Energy Contracting manager Pete Stevens, representatives of The Scarecrow Committee, Sonning and Sonning Eye Society and numerous Parishioners.
After a brief welcome and address by Parish Council Chairman Cllr Doyle to the company who had assembled on the set-back pathway alongside the ‘Great House’ hotel, Theresa responded with her own endorsement to the Parish Council’s health and safety initiative. Theresa then crossed the roadway and activated the lighting system to enthusiastic applause.
Invited guests, including Theresa, adjourned to ‘The Great House’ for a brief drinks reception.
With cold but bright sunny conditions, a splendid turnout to welcome our important visitor and the fullest support of our local authority, your Parish Council derives enormous satisfaction from its ongoing programme of Health and Safety works in our Parish.
