Scout Den filled with light
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.
