I love a good Christmas tradition, and we've got a new one round here. Every year the star decorations go up on the lamp posts in Waterloo Road, and every year none of them south of The Fire Station (or thereabouts) actually work. You'd think, wouldn't you, that someone would actually test them? (No. Silly me.) I wonder if it's a Lambeth/Southwark border dispute?

There's one down The Cut not working either. It hasn't worked since they installed it and they just continued working their way up the street installing the others. Not sure who to report then to - any ideas anyone?

The Waterloo Quarter BID is now aware of this thread - I'm sure they'll look into it.

Light on The Cut still not working, perhaps the Waterloo Quarter Bid didn't see the post.

Yes, it bugs me whenever I go past. Someone please fix it!

It's all fixed now and it looks lovely!!! Thank you one and all.

Almost ditto on Blackfriars Rd - lovely twinkly star lights installed all the way down from the river to Webber Street; but no further. Not that they are just not working, they haven't even been installed.

Why? Is it a hinterland where there be dragons...

The ones on Waterloo Road might be fixed, but the one on The Cut is still out.
