Christmas Lights on the Telstra Tower in Bingara

The Bingara SES entered an arrangement with Telstra some years ago, to put the lights up each year. First though, Telstra had to be satisfied the SES members would not move any of the Telstra equipment.

SES Gwydir Shire Local Controller, Peter O’Brien told the Advocate the Council had this year kindly donated some new LED lights for the tower.

“These lights replace the old ones we have used for some years, and they are much brighter, and were good to put up,” Peter said.

“Once again, Carlton and Linda Orr from the Post Office have donated the electricity for the Christmas tower.”
