  • FUCK! Yeah they got changed because of residents complaints.
    I've got the contacts for the parks manager, what should I say to her?
    From the senior lighting engineer:

    Hi Kevin

    Hope you had a good weekend,

    The flood lights are going off at 9.30pm as this is a condition of there installation, when planning permission was granted for the lighting it was with a curfew time of the lighting not coming on before 3pm and off by 9.30pm. We have had a number of complaints that this was not the case and the council was not complying to the conditions of the planning permission, hence the lighting is now turning off at 9.30pm.

    I have copied the parks manager in to this email who should be able to give you a little more information on this matter should you wish to discuss it further.

    Kind Regards

  • I just realised that this explains why they were going off at 9:30 the week before the BST/GMT switch, and then stayed at 9:30 the week after, despite the movement of time.
    The residents must have complained about them being on too late well before the brief 11pm switch off.

    :-(

  • That's a pisser, oh well... Strong work nonetheless, Kev... x

  • Yes Kev good work all the same. Timed games on busy nights for sure!

  • Maybe we can find out who complained and mount an operation to change their clocks back?

  • Or paint their windows black

  • Euph?

  • thats a shame!

  • piss off norvern scum.

  • gormlol

  • We're sitting at newt at 11, lights still on!?

  • yeah there must be a malfunction. not my bribe work this time. make hay while the sun shines! I'll be in for Wednesday and Friday this week, if I can get a pass.

  • Left at 11:45, lights still on.

  • Bah, and I left cos I thought the lights were going out soon...

  • let's just play it cool and fingers crossed they never ever fix it...

  • I'm surprised this hadn't got more reaction... We didn't do anything, but lights appear to not be going out.

    When did they actually go out?

    Would the football people break into the lights then leave them on and complain to the council we did it?

    Does having the lights on for hours mean the bulbs are going to blow?

    If the council send someone to fix the broken bulb will they notice and turn them off completely for a while?

    Can we have a crazy late night party on Wednesday?

  • Take it easy, guys and gals...

    The lights go off at 9.30 to abide by noise regs, if we have a big old polo party the first chance we get we may get penalised in the long run...

    Be smart, ya feel me?

    Old man speak wise words, you listen.

  • Crazy late night party heap bad idea.

  • Again the lights were on till we all left tonight around 11ish. No party but plenty of bike polo :)

  • Someone's been fiddling with the lights.

    They were on till 10 last night!

  • I emailed the parks manager this morning about the 9:10pm lights out last night, and copied in the two councillors for the ward.

    One of the councillors (Vijay Luthra) already responded, "Thanks for bringing this to our attention Kevin. I'm a badminton player myself so haven't had the same problem but appreciate it must be very frustrating! I hope the issue will be rectified ASAP!" and he replied all, so hopefully the parks people will get it fixed.

    Fixed just to 9:30pm though... :-(

  • Council parks rep got back to me, the lights have been fixed until 9.30pm. Apparently there have been technical problems with the timer recently.
