As anyone in Cocking on Thursday 28th will remember, the power outage lasted somewhat longer than planned. Some took advantage of the enforced gloom to light candles and there are even reports of increased levels of alcohol consumption in some areas. However there is no doubt that the level of disruption was higher than expected and Scottish & Southern Energy have accordingly sent the attached thoughtful letter to the village.
It is good to know that Cocking now has an improved electricity supply and that thanks to the sterling work done by SSE we may now be safe against lightning striking in the same place twice.
