Richmond business help needed to lighten the lamppost load
The Sherland Road Residents’ Association is appealing for funds for a set of Victorian heritage lampposts, after a request to the Richmond Council Civic Pride Fund was turned down.
The current lampposts are due for replacement and the council offered residents the option of installing heritage Victorian lampposts for a fee.
The residents of Sherland Road agreed to cover the majority of the installation costs and applied to the Civic Pride Fund for about £4,000.
Julie Hill, head of the Sherland Road Residents’ Association, said: “Sherland Road is a close community and initiatives that Richmond Council has kindly supported us with in the past, such as our community garden, have proved enormously successful in bringing our community closer together.
“We are now hoping some of the many local businesses our residents support will want to give something back to the local community by assisting us with this community initiative.”
Businesses providing funding would either be referenced on signs on the lampposts, or on the Sherland Road notice board.
Businesses interested in supporting the project should contact email@example.com.
