Painting of heritage streetlight columns

The heritage streetlight columns are to be painted black to match the lanterns and this work will be started by Ringway on or after Monday 16 September 2019.

It is therefore important that residents ensure no overhanging vegetation from their gardens would prevent the painting.

It is important this is done before Monday 16 September as Ringway are unable to cut back any vegetation and they will complete the project within a week and will not return at a later date.

Benington Defibrillators
Alarmed Outdoor AED Cabinet


This defibrillator cabinet is specially designed for outdoor use. It provides protection from dust, rain, cold, rust and moisture. The cabinet is temperature regulated and contains a heating and fan system to provide protection of the AED unit.

The cabinet is made of a clear anti-UV treated polycarbonate cover and ABS frame providing durable, shock resistant protection for the AED. It has an audible alarm and flashing red LED light when the cabinet is open.

The cabinet has a built in heating and fan system. The heating allows the AED to be stored in extreme cold conditions while the fan system allows heat to be extracted from the AED compartment when the weather is warm.

The sensor automatically activates a white light to help identification of the cabinet in low ambient light.

  • Essentially the white flashing helps people to locate the defibrillator

  • It flashes red if the case is opened and a siren also sounds to alert people so the first responder gets additional people to help
