I can confirm that the footpath light is now working after your team came and fixed it on Monday (3rd October). Thank you very much for your company's prompt & swift action, and it was successful and greatly appreciated.

We just wanted to say how beautiful the new 'period' lights in Front Street, Earsdon are. We live at No. ** and they really have made such a difference to the light and atmosphere following the removal of the old lights. A job really well done. Thank you.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

DID YOU FIND THE PINK STREET LIGHT? To support the recent Breast Cancer Awareness Month, SSE Contracting Lighting Services turned a column pink and asked you to tell us where it was! Every correct entry was entered into a free prize draw and SEC donated £1 on behalf of the charity. Congratulations to Danielle Savory who was the winner of an 8GB iPod Nano in correctly identifying column 21N96 Northumberland Street, Westgate.

Safety and Excellence are integral to SSE Contracting’s Core Values. To recognise and reward excellent safety performance after achieving more than 4 years of injury free work, SSE Contracting Lighting Services selected the Evening Chronicle Sunshine Fund as their nominated charity to benefit from their achievement. The Make it Zero award has so far donated £70,000 to good causes around the country. SSE Contracting Lighting Construction Manager Billy Morland said “We are proud that our teams’ safe working has resulted in this gift being made possible to such an important charity.” The money will be used to help disabled children receive the specialised care they need.

Monkseaton Drive

This picture shows the original lighting for Monkseaton Drive. If you get a chance take a look at the picture taken after street lighting replacement took place in Hamilton Drive. We hope you can see the improvement.

This photograph shows Hamilton Drive after the Street Lighting Replacement had been completed. If you get a chance take a look at the picture we have for Monkseaton Drive taken before Street Lighting Replacement. A huge improvement....

Very efficient.

I originally called to see why the lantern on the existing column outside my house has been changed as it was far too bright. After the reason had been explained to me SEC had the lantern blackened out for me. I was very grateful for this and those involved were very efficient.

No longer afraid

I'd just like to say thank you very much for getting the light repaired, the elderly lady who lives in the flat below me is no longer afraid.

It rocked so violently !

During the recent high winds, a lamp post which is very close to the side of our house, rocked so violently that it hit the corner of our roof, damaging tiles and guttering. We made a phone call to the lighting department. We were duly contacted by a gentleman, (E G Reed) who said he would look after the matter. In short, the lamp post was lowered and an excellent repair effected to the roof and guttering, without any fuss. I would be grateful if you could pass on my thanks to all concerned for their efficient polite and prompt service.

Such a quick response

I phoned as a street light was not working in Back Lane and it was the only source of illumination for that part of the Lane. It was fixed straight away. Such a quick response.
