New LEDs light up Guyra Sportsground

The Guyra Sportsground has received a complete lighting upgrade following recent wild storms which damaged the pre-existing  lights and infrastructure.  

New, brighter LED lights were installed by Armidale Regional Council with the generous help and donations of local Guyra businesses and volunteers.  

The new LED lights will provide greater energy efficiency and will provide the community with a quality night-time sporting venue.  

Armidale Regional Council held an official ‘Switching on Ceremony’ that recognised the contributions of many local people and businesses involved in the project.  

Council’s Director of Engineering, Ralf Stoeckeler, said the installation of the lights was a successful joint partnership between Council and the Guyra Community.  

“Local businesses and volunteers donated their time, tools and heavy equipment including cranes and hydraulic lifters to enable the project to be completed,” he said.  

“This infrastructure will be of long-standing benefit to the sporting groups which use the facilities for training and competition, and I am pleased that Council was able to react quickly, and implement quality improvements, following the storm damage.”  

Mr Stoeckeler said the project also supports Council’s aspirations to provide greater energy and cost efficiencies though new technology.  

The project was supported by generous donations from the Guyra sporting and business community including Ann & Geoff Thrift at CT Electrics, Williamson Earthmoving, Steve Burey, Burgess Garage, Blush Tomatoes and volunteers from the Guyra United Soccer Club.
