Street lighting

Tang Muintir are seeking more Street Lighting from Tang Church down to Tang School. Tang was included in the NRA 2013 projects but to date nothing has happened. However, we are currently organising a petition in support of a call to the Minister for Transport to see to the issue of more lighting in the interest of public safety. We need approximately 400 signatures and Robert Troy will go directly to the Minister for Transport on our behalf to put our case forward. Petition forms are left in the Church, School and our local pubs so please sign wherever is convenient over the coming few weeks to help us with our petition to present to Minister for Transport.
