Lights

There is now a new system for the lights on the top & bottom flat. The two light polls have had an on / off switch installed. The lights will be available for use from 5.30pm - 9pm Monday - Saturday. If you wish to use the light simply switch the light to on, when you are finished with the lights please turn the switch to off. If you forget to turn the switch to off they will still automatically turn off at 9pm however to prevent them from turning on (and wasting power) at 5.30pm the next day please turn the lights off.The lights in the stable block are only to be used by pushing the black button on the post. Please do not lift the lid on the box to turn the lights on that way. The black button will give 20 minutes light and you can push it again for another 20 minutes if needed.
