South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place - STUFF.CO.NZ

The Toko­roa Scout Hall is look­ing on the bright side again af­ter hav­ing new lights in­stalled.

With old, fail­ing lights every­where, the Scouts got in elec­tri­cian Go­fox Elec­tri­cal to have a look.

What they found was that due to the age of the lights, most re­quired re­pair­ing.

Go­fox Elec­tri­cal Direc­tor and Scout par­ent, Rob­bie Win­ter­son said this was go­ing to be a big ex­pense for a com­mu­nity group like Scouts.

He went ahead and put the word out to the com­pany’s net­work of sup­pli­ers to see if they could get some help with re­light­ing the hall.

JA Rus­sell’s and Ger­rard Light­ing came to their as­sis­tance and were able to sup­ply 20 free LED Light Bat­tens.

The Scouts have been able to bright­en­ing up the hall for win­ter and also re­duc­ing their power bill and main­te­nance costs.

Go­fox Elec­tri­cal was so im­pressed with the of­fer that they de­cided to re­move the old lights and in­stall the new LED’S for free as a way to sup­port an im­por­tant com­mu­nity group.

They had help on the day from Pu­taruru Scouts, Brody and Ash­ton Win­ter­son.

Win­ter­son said that he was al­ways happy to sup­port the Scouts As­so­ci­a­tion as they are a great re­source for the lo­cal kids.
