caistor-goesFunding of £500 was awarded to Caistor Goes for the purchase  of LED stage lighting to support local events and performances.  The previous lighting that was used placed a great strain on existing electrical infrastructure. The  advantages of LED are related to  the reduction in consumption of  electricity  &  the reduction in the possibility of injury due to hot bulbs to virtually nil. (LEDs produce minimal heat, as opposed to high wattage tungsten bulbs).

Castor Goes have already used the lights at the Caistor Lions Beer Festival in June ,Caistor Goes To The Movies  in July and at the Christmas Market & Tree switch on in November.
All equipment is made available for other groups and organisations to use.
